Dulce de Leche Banana Cheesecake with Churro Cabo Chips

FullSizeRender-1

There is something about cheesecake and winter that I just love. Not that I don’t love cheesecake year round, but during the winter it is something that I really crave. It is so thick and rich and feels like a real indulgent treat. So with cheesecake on my mind I decided to have some fun with my new fave chips – Cabo Chips – since they came out with a churro flavor. I ground up the Churo Cabo Chips like you would graham crackers for a crust. I added a little more cinnamon and a touch of brown sugar to really give the crust some oomph. More about the cheesecake + recipe and a discount code below so keep on reading!

Holiday Baking | Trying noo Things with noosa yoghurt

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 8.19.48 PM

I don’t know if you have noticed the abundance of yoghurt posts coming from the LMEC instagram lately, but I am so obsessed with noosa yoghurt. It is thick, creamy, velvety and rich. It is made in small batches on a family farm in Colorado using wholesome ingredients. My favorite flavor by far is pumpkin, it is good enough to have for dessert!

I used it in a holiday recipe I shared with family and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was a hit. The pumpkin yoghurt was a perfect substitute for mascarpone in this recipe and it gave the tiramisu a light yet rich flavor and texture.

Try something noo (see what I did there hehe)! Incorporate some yoghurt into your next baking adventure or dessert creation. Here are a few other sweets I made using noosa yoghurt + recipe for the pumpkin pie tiramisu below!

Guys, summer is almost here! It’s time for sunshine, backyard bbqs, beach days and rosé. I have the perfect addition to any summer party and I can’t believe I didn’t think of this before – frozen cold pressed juice pops.

Clover is my favorite local juice company. Have you tried the Le Lait it tastes like a vanilla milkshake, but it is better for you and packed with protein. And don’t even get me started on the Gold n’ Greens, the perfect green juice with just the right amount of sweetness.

For these popsicles I took just a standard home popsicle mold and filled them with Clover juice’s – Go Big, The Quench and Menage a Trois. Let them freeze over night and voila, a healthy refreshing summertime treat.

Best part… they delivery both locally (FREE) and nationwide. These happened to be a few juices I didn’t have a chance to get to in my delivery pack so rather than let them go to waste I froze them in all of their tasty glory. You should do the same and what a fun way to get kids to eat a little better while enjoying a sweet treat. Order online and you are just one click away from happy juicing!
