Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

This dairy-free, vegan Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream is beyond dreamy. Rich, creamy and gorgeous in a bold periwinkle blue color. All naturally flavored and colored using wild blueberries.

Blueberry Ice Cream. Fruit-themed ice cream skeptics might think that a berry ice cream is a bit boring compared to say chocolate or cookies 'n cream or even cookie dough ice cream. Well trust me guys, give this one a try! It really tastes like cheesecake and is actually pretty darn good for you too...


5-Ingredient Chocolate Pudding

This creamy, rich, chocolate pudding may look sinfully sweet - but it is actually quite good for you. Rich in plant-based protein from tofu and antioxidants from raw cacao powder. Originally posted in 2011, I am giving this post a 2018 update with some added pics and a how-to video.

One taste and you will see why this decadent pudding or mousse has long been a HealthyHappyLife fan fave! And one of my all time fave recipes as well. You can even totally call this a healthy snack or even breakfast! No-Cook method - just blend and serve. Only 5 ingredients! I also share my current favorite way to spin this recipe...


Spinach-Stuffed Grilled Cheese

Toasty and warm, melty vegan cheese in every bite, this Spinach Stuffed "Popeye" Grilled Cheese is just what you are craving in a decadent yet veggie-accented melty-cheese sandwich.

Spinach Stuffed. Melty Cheese.
Buttery crispy edges of sourdough-rye bread, melty cheddar cheese, a hint of garlic, a slice of juicy yellow tomato and loads of cheezy spinach - this skillet sandwich is packed with flavor! Spinach is a perfect way to load up a grilled cheese with something other than just .. well... cheese.. Get the recipe...

Peanut Butter Candy Cookies

If you are in a baking sort of mood, these Peanut Butter Candy Cookies should do the trick. Peanut butter and chocolate flavor in every chewy, sweet, oh-so-pretty bite. These easy vegan cookies are fast to whip up and look lovely sitting on a plate.

And yes, we live in a world with vegan chocolate-filled, candy-shell-covered, colorful candies, and that is celebration enough for me to do some baking. Happy Monday guys, hope you can try these super delicious cookies!...

Spring Pasta (Mushroom Asparagus)

This Spring Pasta is a vegan, one-skillet meal that is loaded with hearty mushrooms and perky green asparagus. Garlic, lemon and a hint of pesto. Optional buttery avocado slices on top too. So much flavor and texture and yes-ness in each bite of this sunny, seasonal recipe..

..Yes-ness isn't a word. But this pasta. It's just loaded with yes, so, yes-ness it is.

The Ingredients. Simple faves in here! Mushrooms, asparagus, red onion, garlic and a very light pesto sauce accent.

We made this skillet for dinner a few nights ago and were so in love with the one-bowl nature of the meal and all the flavors that I knew I had to make it again for the blog. My favorite thing about this dish is how simple it is to prepare, yet how fancy it feels! One skillet dinner, coming up!..
