While we all know how important it is to eat together as a family, I believe that cooking together is also important. By getting your kids involved in your healthy cooking they create positive eating habits, not to mention fun memories they will have cooking with you. Today my son and I made steamed Brussels sprouts and carrots. It was super easy and fun to use our deep roaster and steam baskets from @copperchefcookware. This Wonder Cooker set has been my go-to cookware for everything from roasting & baking to grilling and steaming! Want to get a free set for yourself?

Hello friends. Raspberries were on sale at @wholefoods today 😋 So naturally I had to make my Raw Raspberry Cheesecake...
Crust ingredients:
•½ cup raw pecans
•½ cup almond flour
•2 pitted dates
•2 tablespoons coconut oil
•1 teaspoon cinnamon
•¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Cheesecake ingredients:
•2 cups raw cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours
•¾ cup maple syrup
•½ cup melted cacao butter
•4 drops vanilla extract
•2 tsp vanilla past
•1 cup coconut/almond milk
•Pinch of salt
•¾ cup melted coconut oil
•2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen)
•raspberry smoothie (1 cup raspberries, half a beetroot and one banana blended with water until smooth)

Directions:
Line a cake pan with strips of parchment paper for easy removal, and grease well with coconut oil. Set aside.
Add the pecans, almond flour, pitted dates, coconut oil, cinnamon and salt to a food processor or high-powered blender and pulverize until it comes together into a form of sticky dough. Press the pecan date dough evenly along the bottom of the prepared pan & set aside.
Drain the cashews and rinse thoroughly. Blend cashews, maple syrup, cacao butter, vanilla extract, vanilla paste, coconut/almond milk & pinch of salt in high- speed blender until smooth. Slowly add the coconut oil and blend until completely combined. Spread the cream evenly on top of the crust.

Gently press whole raspberries into the cheesecake layer, with some scattered on top. Pour drops of raspberry smoothie on top and use the back of a spoon to swirl around. Freeze overnight to set.
Take the slice out of the freezer around 30 minutes before eating. Enjoy! #dessert #healthydessert #cake #nobakecake #nobakedessert #healthysnacks #cheese #raspberry

Who is in the mood for a super healthy, delicious and colorful Chia Pudding? Made with Dragonfruit powder, this pudding is packed with vitamins including vitamin C and B vitamin group. The B1, B2, and B3 vitamins present in dragon fruit improve everything from blood pressure, skin health, and cholesterol levels to thyroid function and carbohydrate metabolism. Here is my simple recipe...
Ingredients:
1/3 cup chia seeds
1.5 cups almond milk
2 teaspoons of maple syrup
1 tablespoon of Dragonfruit powder
Directions:
Mix together chia seeds, almond milk and maple syrup. Stir well and put in fridge to soak overnight (or at least 3 hrs). When chia seeds absorbed the liquid and you see a pudding consistency, separate the mixture into 3 separate parts. Add a bit of dragonfruit to the first pudding mixture until desired darker color. Add a little less to the second portion and even less to the last part. *You can always add more almond milk if the mixture is too thick. Layer into a glass & enjoy! .
