Saturday Salute: Raw Chocolate “Magic Shell”

raw-magic-shell1
What’s better than chocolate? “Healthy” chocolate…and ice cream. And it really does taste better, too. Seriously. Using the base from the banana bowl (i.e., a frozen banana made into ice cream) and raw cacao, you end up with a treat that is raw, packed with antioxidants, AND scrumdiddlyumptious.

Salute to Summer: The Watermelon Paloma

watermelon-paloma1-645
Send off summer with a cocktail that combines two of our favorite things: watermelon and sea salt (oh yeah, and tequila). Don’t be fooled by the unicorn tear-pink hue, this cocktail isn’t for lightweights or sugar saturated drink-lovers. It packs a well disguised, perfectly balanced punch…that can, coincidentally, be served punch-style in the melon from whence it came. And because it contains zero added sugar, it’s a recipe that cocktail aficionados, beach bod conscious imbibers and casual Sunday sippers can enjoy equally.
Cheers to another perfect summer, watermelon in hand. Read on for the recipe…

/Sa’lute/: Italian meaning “cheers!” or  “Enjoy excellent health.” Cheers to Saturday with Salute: a balanced dose of healthy recipes and weekend-worthy drinks.
Up first: a frozen breakfast bowl loaded with a rainbow’s worth of goodness. It’s a readily available, no sugar added version of an Acai or Pitaya bowl. I call it the Banana Bowl. Read on for the recipe… (more…)
