Avocado Key Lime Pudding Paleo Vegan

When it comes to desserts, I absolutely love the ones that are citrus flavored. There’s something so refreshing and delicious about how tart and sour fruits taste when sweetened, and I make sure to make my Lemon Bars every Spring and Summer because I love them so much. So when I saw some cute tiny key limes at the grocery store the other day, I stocked up so I can make a special treat to welcome the warmer months.

This Avocado Key Lime Pudding might be another new favorite of mine, and it’s almost like a deconstructed key lime pie. The creamy and decadent pudding made with avocados is kind of like the pie filling, and the nutty crumble topping adds the crunch factor of a crust. It’s such a delicious combination of flavors that I just can’t get enough of.

Of course, the topping is completely optional if you just want to enjoy the smooth and velvety Avocado Key Lime Pudding on its own. I personally love the texture combo of the two together and I think it’s totally worth the extra effort of making the topping in the oven.

This is also a great treat to make for a picnic or an outdoor get-together since both the pudding and the topping can be made in advance. Because of the addition of the key lime juice and zest, the color of the pudding will stay green and vibrant for several hours if kept cold in an airtight container. Just add the topping right before serving so it stays nice and crunchy!

Paleo Sheet Pan Chocolate Chip Blondies

So… who’s excited for Valentine’s Day? Half of you are probably saying, “Me, me, me!!” and the other half of you are probably rolling your eyes. But hey, no matter whether you are single or have that special someone to celebrate with, I think we can ALL enjoy some sweets and express a bit of love to someone else and/or to ourselves.

And what says L-O-V-E better than a chocolate treat? These sheet pan chocolate chip blondies will definitely fulfill the purpose of giving you all the happy feels without the gluten, soy, and processed sugars. They did for me!

Full disclosure: I made these chocolate chip blondies in a sheet pan for the sole reason that we are in the middle of a move staying at an Airbnb, and a sheet pan was all I had to bake anything in. But hey, I don’t regret a thing because they turned out fan-freakin-tastic! I already tested out popping them in the freezer and defrosting one square at a time and it still tastes amazing. Oh, and they are even better when toasted in the oven for a few minutes after they are thawed!

If you want to go full treat mode, you can even make some chocolate frosting to slather on top and make it a sheet pan cake. The blondies are soft and fluffy enough to be pass as cake, and it’ll add another layer (pun intended) of decadence!

Spiced Maple Rosemary Paleo Mixed Nuts

These gluten free, vegan Spiced Maple Rosemary Paleo Mixed Nuts are sweet, spicy, and a delicious and healthy snack all year round!

Spiced Maple Rosemary Paleo Mixed Nuts

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I really enjoyed mine staycation-ing and traveling to rest and relax in Sonoma County for a few days. It’s been a busy but fun week with my family here to celebrate Christmas, and that usually means I spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and baking meals for them. I don’t mind, but it can be a lot of work and time, so I usually turn to easy recipes that require minimal effort. So when they requested a salty snack to go with their adult beverages, I whipped up this addictive recipe in a flash with whatever I had in the kitchen.

I’m not a huge fan of rosemary because it can taste a bit medicine-y if used too much in a dish, but the flavor complemented really well with the maple syrup and cayenne pepper. If you don’t mind the taste, I suggest you use more. Just a sprinkle of the herb was plenty enough for me. You won’t be able to stop on a few bites of this salty, spicy, sweet goodness. We gobbled this up within a few hours.

Last minute plans can change and maybe I’ll force myself into something sparkly… probably not.

OOO, and I’m getting ready for some big changes in the New Year with the website, so stay tuned for some new and exciting news coming up!
