Chocolate Zucchini Smoothie (that Actually Tastes Like a Milkshake)

I really just need you to trust me on this one and scroll with an open mind.

Chocolate Zucchini Smoothie (that Actually Tastes Like a Milkshake) | Dancing for Donuts | Green Smoothie

Believe me when I tell you guys that I’ve been making this smoothie EVERY single day for a week…and the pictures are here to prove it😂 I know it sounds ~super~ weird to add zucchini to your smoothies, but here’s why I love it so dang much.

  • you cannot taste it. at ALL.
  • it adds a TON of volume so your smoothie will feel more satisfying
  • the texture gets SO creamy without having to add any added sugar (ie. more frozen bananas)
  • the texture gets SO creamy without having to add any extra fruit/sugar
  • it’s cheap as heck and you don’t have to go crazy preparing it – just add in a big chunk completely raw and peeled (but unpeeled is fine!)

Eat it plain or top it with your favorites – I love something crunchy like cacao nibs, Magic Spoon Cereal (pictured at the top!), granola, my new favorite Nutsola, or even a mix of both (like down below!).

Chocolate Zucchini Smoothie (that Actually Tastes Like a Milkshake) | Dancing for Donuts | Green Smoothie

Here’s what’s in my morning “milkshake:”

1/3 large frozen banana

1 cup packed spinach

3 ice cubes

1/2 cup raw, peeled zucchini (pic below for reference!)

1/2 tsp spirulina

1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I love this one and this one!)

1/3 cup filtered water

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 tbsp chia seeds

It goes without saying that everything pretty much just goes into a blender until it’s creamy! Depending on the strength of your blender, you may need to add just a touch more of filtered water or coconut milk to move it along.

Let me know if you try it – now is a good time to experiment in the kitchen😉 Have a wonderful weekend, y’all!

3-Ingredients Banana Oat Cookie Bites

Easy but delicious with few ingredients 👈🏻 my ideal quarantine recipe

3-Ingredients Banana Oat Cookie Bites | Dancing for Donuts | Gluten Free, Vegan, Sugar Free, Oil Free

In an effort to make sure my jean shorts still fit by the time summer comes, I’m definitely trying to slow my roll on the baking front😂 but! I still like having sweet things everyday, just ones that are on the healthier side, y’know what I mean?

These suuuuper easy cookie bites are actually SO easy that I honestly felt silly sharing the recipe, but it was requested on Instagram, so I figured why not put it here, too! They’re little soft & chewy pillows of magic that aren’t overly sweet (aka perfect for any bf who doesn’t have as much of a raging sweet tooth aka mine). They’re also gluten-free, vegan, and have zero added sugar, which makes them 110% acceptable for breakfast😉

I topped mine with Kween & Co Granola Butter and rainbow sprinkles because I believe everything should be topped with rainbow sprinkles, but you do you.

3-Ingredients Banana Oat Cookie Bites | Dancing for Donuts | Gluten Free, Vegan, Sugar Free, Oil Free

3-Ingredient Banana Oat Cookie Bites

1 cup of Rachel’s Overnight Oats (or scant 1 cup oats with 1-2 tbsp each of chia, hemp and flax seeds or just 1 cup oats)

optional add-ins/toppings: sprinkles, chocolate chips, cinnamon, coconut, vanilla extract, raisins, anything!

  2. In a large bowl, mash the banana then add in the oats (and seeds if using), and nut or seed butter. Stir to combine completely, until all ingredients are wet from the banana. *If need be, add a tbsp or 2 of water
  3. Form dough into balls and place on baking sheet (these won’t spread or rise, so you can put them fairly close together!). Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Let cool and then enjoy! Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Cassava Flour Chocolate Protein Zucchini Bread

Ohhhhh I’ve got a GOOD one for you today, guys!!

Gluten-Free Cassava Flour Chocolate Protein Zucchini Bread | Dancing for Donuts

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been doing a lot of baking and a LOT of snacking around here. Both are therapeutic, so I’m running with it. 💁🏻

I’ll keep this short + sweet – this bread is:

✔️ packed with protein, fiber and hidden veggies

✔️ gluten free (with vegan customizable option)

✔️ super moist and decadent but not overly sweet

✔️ boyfriend-approved (which is saying a LOT since mine avoids these *hidden veggie* healthier treats at all costs😂

And if you’ve never baked with Cassava Flour, let me tell you it is my FAVORITE. I’m positive you could swap in regular flour too, though (white or whole wheat). Since I know it’s not as easy to shop for ingredients at the moment, I’ll leave you with lots of different options to suit what’s in your pantry & fridge!

Gluten-Free Cassava Flour Chocolate Protein Zucchini Bread | Dancing for Donuts

Cassava Flour Chocolate Protein Zucchini Bread

1 1/2 cups cassava flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

2 scoops any chocolate protein (I used this one)

1 tbsp cinnamon (optional)

1 egg (or flax egg with 1 tbsp ground flaxseed and 3 tbsp water, let sit for 5 min)

1/2 cup date nectar (or honey or maple syrup)

2 tbsp avocado oil (or melted coconut oil)

1/2 cup greek or regular yogurt (or mashed banana or applesauce)

1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini, packed into the measuring cup

3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used these)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and grease a loaf pan well (or line with parchment paper).
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder & soda, protein powder and cinnamon if using.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the egg, date nectar or sweetener, oil, and yogurt.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir well. Add in the zucchini and chocolate chips and fold in completely.
  5. Pour into the loaf pan in an even layer and bake for 40-60 minutes until a toothpick or knife comes out clean from the middle. Mine was fully baked after 50 minutes.
  6. Let cool for a *full* 30 minutes before slicing! Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days…if it lasts that long😉

Hope you’re all staying well and making/eating all the things that make you happy!

Recipes I’ve Recently Made & LOVED

Hey y’all! How’s everyone’s week going?!

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made And Love

This is my first full week in LA as an entrepreneur and so far it’s been fantastic! It’s kind of crazy how much you can get done in a day, and how quickly time can fly. It’s almost February too, which is bonkers!!

I’ve actually been cooking up a storm over here, since I now have a bit more time and flexibility! While nothing is ever too crazy, there have been some notable recipes I’ve either followed or created. Since I’ve been catching up on work after Hawaii, I figured I’d throw everything in one blog post for you. Everything is shared below and honestly, I’m hungry just looking at it all again😍

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Sausage Pancake Muffins – I didn’t really follow much of a recipe on this one, but I did whip together a batch of Birch Benders pancake mix (as instructed), and then tossed in some Jones Dairy Farm pork sausage to bake in muffin cups at 350 degrees fahrenheit for about 15 minutes. Make these and then dip them in maple syrup. YOU’RE WELCOME.

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Ambitious Kitchen’s Corn Pasta Salad with Cashew Cilantro Pesto – Make this immediately. Trust me. And if you use Banza Chickpea Pasta (aka my favorite pasta of life) it’ll be packed with protein and fiber!

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Pinch of Yum’s Best Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies – Made these for a dinner party last weekend and MAN they were a hit. Definitely making them again veryyyy soon!

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Easy Raspberry Chia Jam – All you need to do to make this is heat up a few frozen raspberries in the microwave (I do about a quarter cup!), throw in about 1/2 tbsp chia seeds (ground or whole) and a sprinkle of coconut sugar. BOOM. 20 seconds later: chia jam!

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Vegan Cashew Cheese with Chickpea Pasta – So I didn’t fully follow a recipe for this one, but I did take a 1/2 cup soaked then drained cashews (in water for about 15 minutes), 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 cup vegetable broth, 6 tbsp nutritional yeast, 2 gloves garlic, sea salt + peppa, and 2 tbsp brown or dijon mustard then blend it all up and voila! Creamy, dreamy vegan cheese 🙂

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Egg White Stovetop Oats – For this, I just took 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup water, then stirred it together over the stove on medium for about 7 minutes. Once the liquid was almost completely absorbed, I took them off the heat, poured in an egg white and stirred veryyyy quickly so that it wouldn’t all cook together like an actual egg! This just adds some extra protein and a lotta fluff. Highly recommend!

Pumpkin Gingerbread Donuts

Slightly sweet and spiced baked donuts perfect for Christmas morning!

Dancing for Donuts | Pumpkin Gingerbread Donuts

Listen, I know some of you might be done with pumpkin, but I for sure didn’t get my fix in the fall!

Besides, adding pumpkin to baked goods is really just a great way to add moisture and fiber without adding sugar or fat, since there’s enough of that in here, already😅 This recipe is hands down one of my favorites from the year and after getting an A+ from 6 other people who tried it, I’m feeling confident enough to share it with you all!

It’s not “healthy” so if you’re looking for that you can feel free to click away, but it is made with some more wholesome ingredients than other donuts and can be customized to your preferences! Keep scrolling for the recipe – it would make such a great breakfast for Christmas morning!!

Dancing for Donuts | Pumpkin Gingerbread Donuts

Pumpkin Gingerbread Donuts

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 cup pumpkin purée

1/3 cup melted Fourth & Heart Vanilla Bean Ghee (or regular ghee!)

scant 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener (or brown sugar, coconut sugar, white sugar, etc.)

1 large egg, beaten

1/2 cup molasses

3 tbsp almond milk

coconut butter, for topping

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and grease a donut pan with coconut oil spray (or whatever you prefer!).

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients including the flour, salt, baking powder and spices.

3. In a medium sized bowl, combine the wet ingredients including the pumpkin, ghee, sugar (whichever kind you’re using!), egg, molasses and almond milk.

4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and fold just until completely combined. Be sure not to overmix!

5. Spoon the dough into the donut pan, filling each mold almost to the top (these don’t rise too much). Bake for about 12-14 minutes or until firm, but still soft!

6. While the donuts are cooling, melt coconut butter in 15 second increments. Drizzle or coat the donuts, then dig in!

10 Recipes I Plan On Making This Autumn

Friends! Fall is…still not here in LA yet, sadly…but I will continue to light my scented candles and buy baby pumpkins until it is!

Dancing for Donuts | 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Donuts

One of the things I do every fall in LA, when I get the most homesick for NY, is make all the autumn-y, cozy foods I can. I wanted to put together this list partly for myself, to keep track of all the things I want to make this season, but also for you in case you need a little comfort food, too!

2-Ingredient Pumpkin Donuts – First up is my pumpkin donuts (pictured above!). This one is at the top of this list for a reason, you guys. I’ve brought these to countless parties and friends, and they are a friggin’ HIT. Plus, they’re 2-ingredients. You really can’t beat that.

Butternut Squash Mac And Cheese

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese – Like, can we just talk about the bacon on there fore a second?!?! Jeeeeez 😍😍😍

Dancing for Donuts | Slow-Cooker Pumpkin Maple Granola.

Slow-Cooker Maple Pumpkin Granola – This is one of my favorite things to make in the fall, it makes the house smell amazing!! And it’s seriously SO easy. I usually eat the whole mason jar with my bare hands before I can even sprinkle it on my yogurt…

Healthy Apple Muffins

Healthy Apple Muffins – You know me, I loooove pumpkin, but I think I love apples even more. I want to make these so badly!

Dancing for Donuts | Easiest Pumpkin Pie Crescent Rolls for an Immaculate Thanksgiving

Pumpkin Pie Crescent Rolls – THESE. Listen, if there’s one thing you make for a holiday gathering this year, please make these because they’re freakin’ AWESOME. I made them last year for a campaign, and ended up making them three more times before the holidays were over. They’re a crowd-pleaser!

Creamy Pumpkin Spaghetti

Creamy Pumpkin Spaghetti with Garlic Kale – If this doesn’t look like the best dinner to pair with a glass of red and an episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, I’m not sure what is.

White Bean Pumpkin Hummus

White Bean Pumpkin Hummus – I’m obsessed with all the recipes on this blog, but this one is definitely one I must make asap. It’s so few ingredients, but looks like the perfect thing to pair with pita chips or veggies!!

Butternut Apple Chicken Salad

Fall Harvest Kale Salad – As you know, I’m trying to have one salad a day. It’s pretty hard unless you plan ahead or buy it out, but I’m thinking that if I made this, I’d want to eat it three times a day.

Dancing for Donuts | 5-Ingredient Slow-Cooker Chili.

5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Chili – Apologies for the awful photo, this is a super old recipe, but it’s one I make at least once a month each fall/winter!! It’s healthy, easy, and makes a ton, so it’s great for lunches at work or low-key dinners!

Fall Harvest Kale Salad

Butternut Apple Chicken Salad with Maple Dressing – Aaaand one last salad, since I literally was just talking about how tight my jeans were on Instagram, and think that maybe I should try to amp up the greens. Hence the salad-a-day goal mentioned earlier🤣

Well, that’s it for today friends! Let me know in the comments if you’re planning on making any of these! I’m pretty sure I’m going to make that pumpkin hummus like, tomorrow! Have a very Happy Halloween!!

The Ultimate Vegan Mac N’Cheese

Autumn calls for comfort food, don’t ya think?

Dancing for Donuts | The Ultimate Vegan Mac N'Cheese

I recently made this vegan mac n’cheese for a giveaway with Spudsy Foods (I mentioned them in my September favorites!) and knew I had to share the full recipe on here with you guys. It’s quite possibly the easiest sauce to make – it comes together in a blender with minimal chopping – and is fantastic with any kind of pasta, although I rarely eat anything other than Banza’s chickpea pasta these days!

The “cheese” part of the sauce comes from Nutritional Yeast, which is basically a vegan supplement for Vitamin B12 and protein that happens to have a delicious cheesy flavor to it. The creaminess of the sauce comes from the soaked cashews and veggie broth, and then there’s some garlic and paprika in there too, for extra flavor! I topped this dish with Spudsy’s BBQ Sweet Potato Puffs, but you could easily just use regular bread crumbs or panko flakes!

And one last thing I’ll say: this dish even passed the bf test, which for me is a HUGE win since mine doesn’t particularly love the idea of “healthy” versions of things😂

Dancing for Donuts | The Ultimate Vegan Mac N'Cheese

The Ultimate Vegan Mac N’Cheese

your favorite pasta, cooked according to the directions

1/2 cup cashews soaked in water for at least 3 hours (or overnight)

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/2 cup veggie broth

1/3 cup non-dairy milk

1/2 tsp paprika

3-4 cloves garlic

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup crumbled Spudsy Sweet Potato Puffs (or breadcrumbs)

1. Cook pasta according to directions and while boiling, make the cashew cheese sauce below.

2. In a blender, add the soaked cashews (drained), broth, milk, nutritional yeast, paprika, garlic and salt to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. *If you need to add a little bit of liquid, add either more broth or water tbsp by tbsp – a little goes a long way!

3. Add the sauce to the drained pasta and keep over low to medium heat to warm the sauce.

4. Spoon the mac n’cheese into bowls or ramekins and top with the breadcrumbs or crumbled Spudsy puffs. Enjoy right away or bake in the oven at 300 degrees fahrenheit for 5-10 minutes. 

*Store leftover cashew cheese sauce in an airtight container for up to 3 days*

Well, that’s it for today!! Have you guys ever made vegan versions of your favorite foods? I’m not vegan, as you know, but I love this idea of re-vamping some of my meals to be more plant-based!

2 Chocolate Recipes for Your Raging Sweet Tooth: Chocolate Cookie Cups & Spiced CBD Truffles

I’m going to share something with you and if you know me at all in person, it probably won’t come as much of a surprise…

Dancing for Donuts | 3-Ingredient Chocolate Cookie Cups with Emmy's Organics

But I literally eat dessert every single night. If we’re being honest here, I probably eat dessert multiple times a day, but most days I try to limit it to once😅

I used to bake a lot, like a whooole lot, and since I’m no longer an athlete for my day job, I’ve had to cut back a bit. That being said, I’ve found some other ways to make treats for myself without going HAM on a loaf of banana bread or eating 6 cookies at once. These days, I’m trying to make desserts that are slightly less sweet (so I can work on curbing my sugar addiction…) and also don’t tempt me to eat the whole batch at once. Luckily I live with my boyfriend, which means I always have someone who can share with me😊

The good thing about the following two recipes is that 1) there’s portion control built into the first one (since you can actually make them one at a time!) and 2) the CBD truffles actually aren’t super sweet, so you’d probably want to stop after a couple, anyway. Both are delicious, insanely easy to make, and not a ton of ingredients. The first is definitely sweeter, and definitely less healthy, but so worth every calorie (we don’t count those here) and the second has a little twist with some CBD coconut oil, although you could easily swap that out with regular! For more on the benefits of CBD, head here.

And now, onto the recipes!🍫

3-Ingredient Chocolate Cookie Cups

2 cups chocolate chips (regular or vegan!)

2 tbsp 4th and Heart Vanilla Bean Ghee (or coconut oil or regular ghee!)

4 Emmy’s Organics Cookies (or your favorite soft cookie/cookie dough)

1. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips with the ghee in 30 second intervals until completely melted (mine took about 75 seconds!)

 2. Pour a tbsp or so of melted chocolate into silicone cups and pop in the freezer for about 10 minutes to harden.

3. Take your cookies and using using your hands, form into little discs that will fit into the silicone cups (I halved each Emmy’s Organics cookie and it was the perfect size). Press those into the hardened chocolate until they form a nice even layer.

4. Pour another tbsp or so of chocolate on top, put them back in the freezer for another 10, and then dig in!! 

Dancing for Donuts | Spiced CBD Truffles

Spiced CBD Truffles

(inspired by this recipe)

1/2 cup CBD Golden Spice Coconut Oil (or regular coconut oil + 1/8 tsp each cinnamon, turmeric & cardamom)

1/2 cup dark cocoa powder or cacao powder (I did half and half!)

5 tbsp honey or maple syrup

pinch of sea salt

1/4 cup raw, shredded coconut (the unsweetened kind!)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp coconut sugar

1. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave (should take less than 30 seconds) and stir in the cocoa & cacao powders, liquid sweetener and sea salt until smooth.

2. Place the bowl in the fridge for at least an hour, or in the freezer for 20 minutes until it hardens to a ganache-like consistency.

3. While the chocolate is in the fridge, make the truffle coating by mixing the coconut and spices in a small bowl or on a plate.

4. When the chocolate has hardened, form small 1/2 inch or so balls with your hands. Then, coat in the balls in the spice, coconut & sugar mix.  *This step is messy, just fyi! I’d definitely do it near a sink 🙂 

5. Let harden again in the fridge until ready to eat. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Have a great rest of your week😊

3 Cute V-Day Food Ideas (for You or Your Boo!)

Hi friends!! I’m back today with some Valentine’s Day cuteness ’cause let’s be real, the fun of this holiday is basically just the treats you get to indulge in😏

Dancing for Donuts | 3 Cute V-Day Food Ideas (for You or Your Boo!)

I’m going to be honest with you, I could kind of care less about Valentine’s Day. I mean, for like 95% of my life I was single for it, and even if I did have a boyfriend, it felt like any other day. I think my number one thing about it is just knowing that someone thought about me, but the truth is that if you’re dating someone who you’re truly meant to be with, that person is going to show you they’re thinking about you every damn day, y’know? Last year, Alex and I just made dinner at home and this year we’re planning on doing the same thing. I’ll definitely be whipping up something sweet, which I’m veryyyyy excited for (!), but otherwise it’ll be low key!

Regardless of who you’re with (or not with) this V-Day, I think the most important thing you can focus on is showing love to yourself and those around you. Call your parents, your siblings, your best friends, and tell them how much you care about them. Maybe write a card, or bake them something sweet you know they’ll love. And if it’s just you at the end of the night, treat yourself to some self care – a face mask, glass of wine (or kombucha), an episode of your favorite Netflix show, and a lil’ dessert. You deserve it! If you’re looking for something extra to do for yourself, your bae, or just the ‘gram, I’ve got some ideas for you guys that I’ve either done myself or have found across the web during my V-Day research!

Dancing for Donuts | 3 Cute V-Day Food Ideas (for You or Your Boo!)

Heart-Shaped Food – This one is probably the easiest, cheapest, cutes thing you could possibly do! All you need is a heart cookie cutter and the possibilities are endless. Last year I made us heart-shaped avocado toast (basic b meets overrated holiday😂) and this year I’m planning on making heart-shaped pancakes! The ones in the photo at the beginning of this post were just made from the Birch Benders mix I had on hand and I added an easy chia-berry jam on top.

If you wanted to be reaaaaal cute, you could do pink jam so instead of using mixed berries like I did, do only raspberries or strawberries! To make it, put frozen berries of whichever variety you’d like in a microwave safe dish for about 30 seconds, add a tablespoon of either whole or ground chia seeds, and stir to combine. Let it sit for a couple of minutes and then you’re good to go! I like to use ground chia seeds, which are nice since you can’t even taste them, but they still help bring the jam together like whole seeds do.

White Chocolate Valentine’s Day Popcorn – This one is so perfect if you’re doing a galentine’s party or having a movie night in! I originally made this recipe two years ago, but if I were making it today I’d probably swap out the candy hearts for pink, white and red m&m’s! I know that might be overkill on the chocolate, but like, is there such a thing? The answer is no. Plus they might melt a little and be all soft and chewy and magical. Highly recommend.

Screen Shot 2018-02-12 at 9.26.52 PM

Pink Puppy Chow (Vegan!) – I originally found this recipe here, and proceeded to pin it immediately because HOW cute. The only reason I didn’t make it this week is because I can’t actually be trusted with a bowl of this stuff, but 1) Valentine’s Day is for sharing and 2) this recipe seems to be slightly better for you, so I really should…but I think it would be SO stinkin’ cute to put a bag of this in your honey’s work bag so that they have a sweet treat during the day. Or, let’s be honest, just put it in your own bag because that post-lunch sweet tooth is REAL #amiright

Here are some other last-minute ideas in case you need some more V-Day inspo!

How to Have the Perfect Valentine’s Date Night In – Because going out on Valentine’s Day is sooooo overpriced and overcrowded!

25 Things to Make Your Valentine for Breakfast – If you have some extra time in the morning, I think starting the day off with one of these would be soooo fun!

Top 10 Posts of 2017

Hi friends and Happy (almost) New Year!!!!

Dancing for Donuts | Top 10 Posts of 2017

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I obviously wanted to take some time this week to just soak up as much time with my family as possible, so I did take a mini blog-break. As I sit on the train down to D.C., I’m feeling so unbelievably grateful for having the opportunity to travel home for the holidays and to work remotely. I hope you all were able to, as well!

This year has been pretty nuts in so many ways, particularly for the world (and this country) in general, but personally I experienced a ton of personal growth, adventuring, and figuring out where I want to be in life. I expanded my skillset professionally, started growing my blog, strengthened new and old friendships, moved into a new apartment with my boyfriend, and traveled to so many new places. It’s been quite the year!

I just want to thank you all so much for reading my blog, you have no idea how fulfilling it has been to create content and have this creative outlet. Reading your comments and hearing your feedback makes me so happy, and I’m honored to be able to share this bit of my life with you. With that, I wanted to take a quick moment to wrap up the year with my top 10 posts of 2017! I’m looking forward to spending even more time in the kitchen and on DFD in the upcoming year, so please let me know in the comments if there’s anything you’d like to see more or less of, or even something different entirely!
