Double Layer Lemon Custard with Strawberry Compote

Whenever I think of custard, I think of really heavy, dairy-laden, high fat desserts found in Italian restaurants; although most of that is true, today I’m here to shine a new light on the word custard by sharing an incredibly healthy vegan spin on this classic custard dessert. Double Layer Lemon Custard with Strawberry Compote is not only is a great vegan alternative to traditional custards, it’s perfect for the warmer months of the year utilizing fresh product in season such as strawberries and refreshing lemons.

I adore using fresh fruits and citrus in spring and summer recipes because it brings  a certain light, airy, and refreshing feel to the meal. Especially with desserts, sometimes it’s nice to have something a little on the lighter side with flavor and digestibility (I mean hey, we all need to look great in our shorts and dresses this summer right?). This Double Layer Lemon Custard with Strawberry Compote gives you the best of both worlds, light on digestion, refreshing and bright flavors of spring, but with a feel of decadence from the silky custard.

Chewy Superfood Hemp Protein Bars

Being athletic and living an active lifestyle, I’m always on the lookout for unique and plant-based friendly products catered towards protein density- I haven’t found too many on the market that I enjoy consuming on a daily basis just yet… so I created my own! Chewy Superfood Hemp Protein Bars have become one of my favorite go-to snacks or desserts when I’m on the go or simply want something high in protein, filling, and it satisfies my sweet tooth at the same time (win win). These protein bars are not like your standard protein bars that you find in most grocery stores, they contain only whole food ingredients that you and I both can find in our pantry!

There’s something about the main ingredients in this bar chocolate, nuts, and dried fruit that’s such a lovely combination between sweet, crunchy, chewy, and creamy. Superfoods = super nutrition from the nutrient dense plant-based proteins found in this bar. One of the superfoods I use are cherries, which happen to be one of my favorite fruits because of their anti-inflammatory power and culinary use in both sweet and savory dishes. Several other ingredients in this bar serve as binding ingredients to make this recipe super simple to make…and an added bonus, no cooking! These are all raw with no fuss of baking.

Well no worries, today I’m sharing one of my new favorite variations on a brownie, it’s raw! Raw Chocolate Nib Brownies are one of the easiest brownie recipes you may ever make and not to mention are loaded with only nutrient dense all natural ingredients.

These are also a beautiful way to show your body some love as well as sharing a healthy treat with the one you love- you can’t ask for a better Valentine’s treat than that.

The brownies I grew up on came from a box, a box loaded with ingredients I couldn’t pronounce let alone identify what they were used for. I’ll be honest, they tastes great, but the health benefits were non-existent. I wanted to spruce up a traditional brownie recipe and give it a unique spin perfect for anyone to enjoy. Brownies are typically made with loads of refined sugars, flours, and even artificial coloring (?). These brownies are only made with whole food ingredients including dates, almonds, pistachios, cocoa powder, and my favorite cacao nibs.
