As if Tres Leches cake wasn’t already good enough on it’s own, today I am adding one of my favorite desserts flavors to add a delicious twist to this incredible dessert; Cookies & Cream Tres Leches Cake! Read More
Can I just start by saying this keto friendly, high protein chocolate mug cake is only 200 calories?
I’ve been on a quest to find a complete replica of a brownie-like cake that could satisfy my instant gratification while not ruining all the hard work I’ve put into eating cleaner and working hard at the gym. Not a black bean brownie, nor fake sugar that leaves a gross aftertaste in your mouth. The past few years I’ve tried “healthy” sweets and yes, it can be good when you’re totally desperate, but I wanted better.
I was yearning for a true dessert that tasted like, well… dessert! There are really good keto recipes out there that are really good, but they are also high in fat and calories. Since I am not doing keto, I really don’t want the extra numbers in my dessert. So I am super excited to share this recipe with you today that can give us the best of both worlds.
Oh, and I forgot to mention this dessert is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb/sugar, low fat and high protein!

Decadence is an understatement. This is like, a boozy chocolate truffle and a brownie had a baby, and it’s this Irish Cream Chocolate Fudge Pie! Listen, this pie is rich. So you can’t make this pie and then say, “omg it’s rich”. Because, duh. It’s rich. That’s the point 🙂 If you aren’t crazy for chocolate (like in the way that you could always eat it after you are already very full), this one may not be for you. Read More
Super chewy, pillowy soft, thick sugar cookie crust is the base of this beautiful short-cut dessert, converting store-bought vanilla ice cream to a white chocolate strawberry and blueberry dream. This is the ultimate dessert for the summer.
Forth of July party, picnic, family gathering, whatever the occasion this summer, ice cream pie can always be your answer. It’s so universal and can be made in many ways. It’s always a crowd pleaser and is super easy to make – not requiring any ice cream machine, because you are just elevating store bought ice cream (of course if you want extra credit you can make your own ice cream – I am all about that life).
“Cherry chocolate rain. Pull me in with that delicious stare”. Do you remember that hilarious episode of The Office was when Michael Scott mentions the time he discovered YouTube and viewed Cookie Monster singing Chocolate Rain about a thousand times? Lol I can’t even! I sing this song whenever I think of cherry and chocolate together. Like while eating a chocolate chip cookie paired with an ice cold Dr. Pepper, or drinking a Black Forest milkshake. If you are a fan of these cherry-almond/chocolate combinations, this is going to be a fiesta in your boca (mouth). Read More
Many years ago, maybe in 2007-ish, there were these Sara Lee cheesecake bites they sold in the frozen section at grocery stores. They were so poppable, sort of like bon-bon’s but cheesecake instead. I remembered them a few weeks and began craving that poppable crunch that is sooo addictive. That crisp chocolate shell that snaps when you bite into it and creamy and delicate cheesecake in the middle!! OMG! So, here we are, fulfilling another food fantasy 🙂
Yes, this really just happened. I went there and I am so sorry that I did… it’s just not right to condone eating a double funnel cake with ice cream in between. I refuse to even prepare a calorie breakdown cause it wouldn’t be pretty I can tell you that. My only justification is that you could potentially do halvesies with a spouse or a friend and then maybe we will only have 50% of the guilt?
This dessert is what my chocolate dreams are made of. The funnel cake is so soft and chocolatey and the combination of the warm fried funnel cake and the softened ice cream make this literally the craziest BEST ice cream sandwich you will ever eat! Who needs this in their lives?? (Hint: We all do.) Read More
