This smoothie gave me all the feels once I took the first sip! It reminded me of growing up in my hometown New Orleans, eating hucka-bucks, or frozen cups as some may call it.
If you were to go to a local New Orleans neighborhood that hasn’t been gentrified to obliteration. You may just find a lady or gentleman selling frozen cups.
The backstory is there’s a flavor that was by far one of my favorite flavors, it was called Dreamsicle. It had a creamy, orange-y, cantaloupe-y flavor and my friends this smoothie helped bring back those tasty memories in a healthy way.
Also this smoothie is totally vegan, completely nutritious, and delicious. Finally, the best part is there’s only 5 ingredients! Orange, cantaloupe , unsweetened coconut milk, date nectar and ice.
Feel free to use whatever blender you may have a nutribulletor any blender works well.
Let’s jump right into this simply delicious smoothie recipe.

First, Happy New Year! It’s been a smooth hot minute since I’ve blogged about anything, but here I am doing what I love once more😊 Cheers to that!
And speaking of cheers let’s celebrate all this good health energy that’s in the air (which is definitely the case for the New Year), but what happens if we kept that going all the way through May?? Hey! I’m all in y’all it’s definitely a one day at a time deal, so no rush, but staying the course is key.
And staying the course with this Beet Juice Cleanser Detox drink will get the gut cleaning party started! I had two glasses of this lovely nutrient packed juice and can I tell you how this cleansed a Sista out!! But caution I’m not a Dr. and please drink lots of water when drinking any sort of detox drink. But I highly recommend adding this to your cleansing regimen.
Now, I will say with any detox you must ease into it. It’s very exciting getting motivated and overzealous to restart your body. but researching and taking time out to study ingredients and their benefits are paramount to a successful detox.
For this recipe you will need a juicer, 2 beets cleaned, 1 cup of pitted cherries, 1 cup of pomegranates. Start with the beets first, then all the other fruits. And your done! Health in a cup.
Ah!! Summer! The longer days, the ripe trees and berries in all it’s abundance. This is the season to indulge yourself in everything berry, strawberry to be exact.
No summer is complete without having strawberry shortcake at least once throughout the season. It’s simply delicious and fun to make, instant smiles happen when you plate this up for your loved ones. Not to be confused with the equally delicious cake version, but we’re going old school style with this classic dessert. A delicious made from scratch biscuit will have you feeling like you been baking for years!
I’m quite proud about this strawberry shortcake recipe. It took me so many trials and error to finally get a delicious, tender, and flavorful biscuit. I couldn’t be more delighted to share this with you all.
The biscuit has a nice subtle sweetness, filled with sweetened strawberries that creates a juicy sauce to drizzle for an eye pleasing experience. And of course theirs freshly made whipped cream that’s way to simple to make, so skip the cool whip and get your hand mixer out.
Oh Chicken! How I love you, you’re so flavorful and easy to cook. I can literally find 100 ways to cook you and never get tired of eating you. But you absolutely make me swoon when you’re fried— especially when you’re golden brown and crunchy, bursting with flavor!
Somebody loves their chicken! And truly, who doesn’t like fried chicken from time to time?? Even vegans sneak a piece of fried chicken every once in a while🍗 (your secrets safe with me friend).
But the real secret I will share is this fried chicken recipe. You won’t need a five dollar box after making this chicken! Well, at least for that particular day.
In life, I believe there is a time when your body must reset. Whether it’s going vegan, juicing for a week straight, or adding a copious amount of fresh vegetables and herbs to your diet. It’s a natural necessary adjustment and my “Copy Cat” version of Zea’s famous Mediterranean Hummus Dip, is sure to get you snacking in a healthy and delicious direction.
Hummus have become a popular go-to snack and with so many ready- made versions available, they’re not hard to find in stores. My version of hummus takes an ordinary store-bought hummus and transforms it into restaurant quality hummus dip!
