Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites

Cheesecake is my all time favorite dessert! Every year for Thanksgiving, I make a pumpkin toffee cheesecake. This year, I decided to make paleo pumpkin cheesecake bites to indulge in all throughout the fall season! 2020 has been a shitshow, the least we can do is enjoy some pumpkin cheesecake…




Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew

Nothing like pumpkin spice to perk you up during a pandemic, amirite?!

While it’s still hot outside, I like to start indulging in Pumpkin Spice everyyyything once it hits September, so I decided to make a Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew, instead of hot coffee like I usually do!




Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (Dairy Free)

I loveeee pumpkin spice season! I find great joy in all the pumpkin treats during fall. This recipe combines 3 of my favorites in one dessert: pumpkin, pecan, & cheesecake! Plus, it’s paleo friendly – so it’s gluten free, grain free, & dairy free!

These cupcakes are so freaking delicious, it’s hard to believe they’re paleo. Make them for Thanksgiving, fall parties throughout the season, girls night, or any occasion you’d want some cupcakes!




White Peach Sangria

White Peach Sangria is such a refreshing summer drink! Sangria is my drink of choice and I love the different variations throughout the seasons. Summer is my absolute favorite time of year and it’s the time I transition from red wine to white wine. Most often I do enjoy red sangria, but once in a while I’ll go for white… like this recipe.

Peaches are such a delicious summer fruit, which makes this sangria the perfect summer beverage for backyard BBQs! If you are having a party, you may want to double (or triple) the recipe, depending on the number of guests. You can easily change the serving size on the recipe below and it will automatically convert the recipe measurements for you! 




Strawberry Kiwi Muffins (Gluten Free)

Strawberries and kiwis are my two favorite fruits and they’re a common flavor combination. I thought it might be interesting to try them together in muffins – blended into the batter. To be honest, the strawberry kiwi flavor is just slightly in the background of these muffins, although I definitely enjoyed them. These muffins are pretty dense and filling made with almond flour, cashew butter, and coconut oil. Try them for a gluten free breakfast on the go or as a snack!




Raspberries & Cream Protein Smoothie

I don’t drink protein shakes/smoothies all that often. I prefer eating actual food. But every so often, I’ll either crave having a shake or be very pressed for time and need it in a pinch. Eating on the go is definitely not ideal, as we should be relaxed while we are eating in order to properly digestion our food. But, life happens and sometimes this is the only way to get our fuel in.

I included almond milk yogurt to this smoothie recipe to add in some probiotics and creaminess. This smoothie is also great left in the freezer and eaten as a protein ice cream!

The protein powder that I use is Reserveage Grass-Fed Whey.
The collagen I use is Vital Proteins Pasture Raised Collagen Peptides.
The jam I use is St. Dalfour Red Raspberry.
The yogurt I use is Kite Hill Vanilla or Plain.

 




Hormone Balancing Smoothie

Hormones got you feeling out of sorts? This smoothie contains hemp seeds and maca to balance hormones. Hemp seeds are a great source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory and promote hormone health. Maca is used for boosting libido, energy, and hormone balance. Together with coconut milk/cacao butter (healthy fat) and banana (healthy carbohydrate), this blend makes the perfect treat for anyone seeking to balance hormones.




Cinnamon Chocolate Cranberry Sauce

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is almost here! I can’t wait 😀 I made a new twist on the traditional Thanksgiving side –> cranberry sauce. I added cinnamon and chocolate chips and served it hot. Normally on Thanksgiving, I have cold sliced jellied cranberry sauce, which I also love.

This dish can be eaten along with Thanksgiving dinner or served as a dessert.

3-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream (Dairy-Free)

This recipe is soooo easy, yet so satisfying. The frozen banana texture is perfect to mimic the texture of ice cream and adds natural sweetness, along with coconut milk for creaminess. You can always experiment with this and add more ingredients such as chocolate chips, nuts, or Cappello’s cookie dough for an indulgent treat!




Paleo Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Pumpkin spice pancakes with pumpkin spice coffee is one of my absolute favorite things about fall! Add some bacon for the perfect breakfast. When I was food shopping, I came across a new grain free, paleo friendly pancake mix and decided to try it and make them pumpkin spice and top them with apple butter for a super delicious fall breakfast!

The flour I used is Pamela’s Grain Free Pancake Mix
