A while back, I shared my new found love for ice cream that didn’t have any cream in it to speak of! It was completely, 100 percent, fruit. And it was delicious. Friends, I have yet another lovely frozen fruit dessert for you to try…

Tomato-Basil Vegan Grilled “Samich” — Be sure to leave room around the edge of the bread, don’t let your tomatoes and basil try to peak!

All of the ingredients can easily be found at any major supermarket! First, you’ll need some vegan bread. I used potato bread, but any bread will do. You’ll also need one roma tomato, some of  your favorite hummus (I used roasted red pepper), fresh basil, and your favorite vegan butter. Instead of butter, I actually used Earth Balance’s Coconut Spread.  You’ll also need some Tofutti cream cheese (or you can make your own cream cheese!)…

Tomato-Basil Soup

(Picture coming soon)

I adapted this recipe from an older recipe of mine that used regular sugar and chicken broth. Just a few quick changes made it vegan and amazing! If you don’t really like the taste of onions (or you do) this is a good soup for you. The onions I used aren’t strong and I could actually slice them without crying!…

Orange-Berry Smoothie

Whether you’re feeling under the weather or you’re proactive about your health, this amazing smoothie “recipe” can give your taste buds a tingle and your body a boost. You don’t need a juicer, but to get all the benefits of the OJ without all the added sugar, I suggest you juice the oranges (or tangerines) yourself. But if you simply don’t have a juicer, opt for an organic raw orange juice instead of regular OJ….
