Apple Cinnamon Smoothie

One of the best things about my job is that I get to review some pretty awesome cookbooks.  This Apple Cinnamon Delight recipe comes from Emily Von Euw’s latest cookbook, 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy SnacksI am already a fan of her blog, and I own her first cookbook, Rawsome Vegan Baking as well.  If you are looking for a great way to start off the new year healthier, I highly recommend this book.  I have to admit, sometimes I get in a smoothie/juice rut and lack the inspiration for new recipes.  That is what makes 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks so great.  You will never get bored.


There are tons of great recipes! Emily was kind enough to let me share a recipe from the book with you.  I chose the Apple Cinnamon Delight because it’s perfect for this time of year.

Apple Pie Smoothie - My Whole Food Life

This smoothie is super easy and tastes like an apple pie in smoothie form.  Can it get better than that?  This recipe makes a lot so you can freeze some for later.  I like to freeze my smoothies in ice cube trays so I only have to pop out what I need.  Works great!

Apple Spice Coffee Cake Muffins (Vegan)

Apple Spice Coffee Cake Muffins.  The other day I had a reader ask if I had a gluten free apple muffin.

I did not at the time, so that is why I created these Apple Coffee Cake MuffinsThese apple spice  coffee cake muffins are good with or without the crumb topping.  In fact, they are completely oil free if you skip the crumb topping.

I did half with and half without and both ways are delicious.  The applesauce in this recipe keeps these super moist.

My daughter kept trying to sneak some when they were cooling!  If you like apple treats you may also enjoy my healthy apple cobbler and my healthy apple pie.

I made mine into jumbo muffins, but you can also do standard sized.  You may need to adjust the cooking time though.  These muffins freeze great so you can make a big batch and freeze for those busy mornings.

Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake

Quinoa is not just for savory dishes.  It can be used in many sweet recipes such as this Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake.  Even those this Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake closely resembles muffins, I decided they were a little too soft to call them muffins.

These almost remind me of my baked oatmeal recipes.  This is the kind of breakfast you eat with a fork more than your hand.  If you like baked oatmeal, but do not tolerate oats well, this is the perfect alternative.

Not only is this Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake tasty, it also has no added sugars!  I sweetened mine with dates, apples and applesauce.


Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bake - My Whole Food Life


This healthy breakfast quinoa bake is vegan and gluten free.  I made mine into jumbo sized muffins, but you can probably bake the whole thing in a pan as well.

You may have to adjust the cooking time though.  This would make a great weekend breakfast.  Your house will smell amazing as it cooks too!

Apple Pie Ice Cream (Vegan, Paleo)

I know we are getting close to the beginning of fall, but ice cream is always a good idea. 🙂  This Apple Pie Ice Cream is so awesome!

It seriously tastes like an apple pie ala mode.  The best thing about this apple pie ice cream?  It’s made healthier!  I was licking the spoon as it was churning in the ice cream maker.


Apple Pie Ice Cream


This might just be my most favorite ice cream recipe ever.  I used my crock pot applesauce for this recipe.  I highly recommend doing the same.

Slow cooking the apples in all the spices brings out the natural sugars and creates a great flavor profile for this recipe.  I think that is what brought this over the top for me.

I am going to have a hard time sharing this one with hubby and the kids. 🙂

Chard Wraps with Apple Slaw (Vegan)

Chard Wraps with Apple Slaw.  The other day my husband bought a bag of apples because they were on sale.  It was perfect because I have been wanting to do an apple slaw.

I normally make a crock pot applesauce.  What better way to enjoy the apple slaw than a in a chard wrap?  These lettuce wraps with apple slaw are the perfect healthy dish to kick off the new year with.

The tahini dressing really makes this apple slaw stand out.  In fact, I use it as a dressing for salads as well.  I love lettuce wraps because they fit into every diet.  Gluten free, grain free, vegan and raw.
