Pear Breakfast Smoothie

| Breakfast, Drinks and Smoothies, Uncategorized

This is a simple yet satisfying smoothie that I quickly throw together when I need a breakfast on the run.  From time to time I buy a big bunch of ripe bananas, chop them into thirds and throw them into a ziplock bag before popping it into the freezer.  It lurks there happily, waiting to be popped into my smoothie of choice.

Pear SmoothieIngredients

  • 2 ripe pears (I particularly love ripe forelle pears)
  • 1 large frozen ripe banana
  • 1 flat teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 rounded teaspoon flax seed
  • 1 cup of ice water

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.  Add more water until desired consistency is achieved.

Almost Fat Free Chocolate Cake

| Cakes, Cupcakes & Baked Goods, Uncategorized

Last night, I had a terrible/wonderful chocolate craving and I had to have a big slice (or 2) (Who’s counting?! Don’t judge!) of moist, rich, icing laden chocolate cake stat!  A quick google search revealed this gem….It has no added fat and takes 5 minutes to throw together.

drtgoesvegan3This recipe was so good that I did not adjust it at all.  I made my favourite chocolate icing to go with it.  I used the chocolate icing to sandwich the cakes together – adding a few morello cherries in between the two layers and then covered the cake with more icing and maraschino cherries.

Nom nom….
