A SMOOTHIE RECIPE TO KICKSTART YOUR MORNING

 

Today on West Elm’s Blog Front + Main, I’m sharing my absolute favorite Banana Avocado ‘Ice Cream’ recipe two ways (think warming cinnamon, plump blueberries, and ultra creamy coconut butter) plus a few helpful tips to ensure your smoothie bowls come out creamy, creamy every time.

STEAK AND POTATOES

 

Last night I pulled a Kim Kardashian and broke the internet (or at least my Instagram feed) – seemingly putting the validity of and intention behind my veganism in question and spurring what felt like this grizzly battle of words and opinion. I posted a photograph of a butcher shop with the following caption [..]

GINGER INFUSED CREAMY COCONUT AND BLUEBERRY POPS

 

For this recipe, I used frozen blueberries, but feel free to get creative with whatever fresh berries are seasonally available near you – you could even do a mix for a red, white, and blue pop! I serve my vegan coconut popsicles on hot summer nights after a brilliant evening of grilling – making them extra fun by substituting popsicle sticks with Susty Party’s wooden cutlery!

LATE SPRING FARMERS MARKET MUST HAVES

 

Sunday mornings you’ll find my husband and me wandering through DC’s Dupont market – piping hot coffees in hand- swooning over Mother Nature’s magic and planning how we can best utilize a market haul to prepare our vibrant, delicious, and affordable meals. As we welcome springtime and early summer, here are a few tips on why you should shop seasonal and, though the list is always evolving, my current Washington, DC favorite market finds.

WEEKDAY VEGETABLE BEAN SOUP

 

Even in the highest heats of summer, I tend to find myself drawn to bowls of soups, stews, and curries – though I often serve them cold or at room temperature. With a busy schedule and tight wallet there’s something alluring about the one pot meal, only having to dedicate 10-15 minutes to my kitchen while my Dutch oven does the rest.
