I’ve got a little easy mid-week treat for you guys today, and it’s perfect for summer. This is the kind of shortcut no-bake dessert that I love for the warm days when you don’t want to turn your oven on. It’s layers of a fluffy ricotta cream, strawberries, and broken up graham crackers, and it’s insanely yummy!

Hey guys! I’ve got an easy little pie for you all just in time for Easter, or for any time really! If you’ve ever had a French Silk Pie, this is kind of like that, but coffee flavored instead of chocolate!

Hey everyone! I’ve got a perfect recipe for Thanksgiving for you guys today! It’s vegan, and you’d really never know. These babies passed the test with many non-vegan family members, and single serve desserts are perfect this year!

Hey guys- it’s about time for more comfort food, right? Bread pudding is something I’ve always wanted to master, but could never quite get right. This recipe is super simple to put together, and it checks all the boxes a great bread pudding!

Hey guys! Today I’m giving you a recipe to indulge in the cold weather happening right now. When I was a kid, there was a little bakery near our house, and they sold single servings of chocolate mousse in little plastic deli containers and the day that I have been trying to recreate that for years. While I’m not sure if this one is QUITE as good, it’s a solid second to what I remember!

Okay, you guys know I’m not always, uhm, healthy on here. Haha- like I’m all about the butter and carbs. But this is an exception, and this mousse from Kristin at Cooking With Kenstin won’t leave you missing any of those unhealthy ingredients! She’s an amazing healthy food blogger, so go give her a follow on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter– I promise you won’t regret it!

Hey guys I’m so happy to be presenting this great light chocolate snack that’s actually really healthy! Unlike most recipes out there with lumpy chia seeds we have created a smooth and fluffy Chia Seed Chocolate Mousse.

First off, this is probably one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made. The best part about this dessert? It tastes like a little peace of heaven. Seriously, this is amazingly easy to make and only takes 4 ingredients! That’s it! By blending the chia seeds and sugar first into a powdery consistency it helps to keep away unwanted lumps and creates a creamy and fluffy texture once the Chia Seeds are soaked.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are seeds from a plant which derive from the mint family called Salvia Hispanica. They carry tons of health benefits for our bodies. Packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, calcium and iron. Chia seeds are linked to preventing strokes and heart attacks.

Organic Cane Sugar

This sugar is actually much better for you than brown sugar. Did you know that brown sugar is actually not as healthy as we would think? Brown sugar is just white sugar concentrated with molasses. Cane sugar is much less processed and less refined.

In this Chia Seed Chocolate Mousse the ingredients are light, fresh, and airy, making this a wonderful Vegan dessert. All it takes is just 4 simple ingredients blended together and popped in the refrigerator for about 2 or 3 hours! After that you’ve got yourself a fancy healthy mousse dessert. You can also top this with nuts to add a nice crunch, or maybe some fruit for a fresh sweet burst. I chose to top mine with chopped walnuts and almonds which add a perfect salty touch to this sweet chocolatey dessert.
