Fat Free Whole Wheat Vegan Banana Bread

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: December 3, 2012

Banana bread is one of my favorite childhood treats. I remember baking it many times and trying to pack as much banana flavor into it as possible. But traditional banana bread isn't very healthy. It's made with white flour, oil, eggs and sugar. It's also not usually vegan. So I wanted to make a fat free oil free vegan version of banana bread and this one uses stone ground whole wheat flour. Even though it's oil free, it's actually very moist and a very similar texture to regular banana bread. I was really impressed with this recipe. Instead of sugar…

How To Tell If A Banana Is Ripe With Pictures! (A Yellow Banana Is Not Ripe Enough)

Relevance: 44%      Posted on: October 23, 2011

So you want to know how to tell if a banana is ripe and if the ones you have are ripe enough. One of the most troubling things I find when promoting fresh fruits and vegetables to people is that they don't understand that many fruits have to ripen before being eaten. You cannot just assume you can simply pick the fruit up from the grocery store display, take it home and eat it right away like a frozen dinner, a box of pasta or a can of beans. (There are a few exceptions like apples and oranges.) As society…

Sinless Fat Free Vegan Chocolate Banana Shake Recipe

Relevance: 36%      Posted on: May 10, 2012

  I don't usually eat a lot of chocolate or use cocoa or cacao in my smoothie recipes, but I'm sure some of you out there have cravings for a chocolate milk shake or smoothie once in a while and I thought I'd make a little treat for us! There are few things more delicious than the combination of bananas with chocolate and even without the traditional ice-cream, this shake is still delicious. The key to making it creamy and naturally sweet is to use fully ripe (lots and lots of spots) bananas. To make this recipe truly fat free…

Acai Banana Berry Bowl Recipe

Relevance: 36%      Posted on: April 21, 2013

I have been having my fill of acai bowls since visiting southern California. Originally they come from Brazil, but they are also popular in Hawaii and many American juice bars. I visited one of my raw food friends in California and had the chance to actually make something while on the road in her kitchen. I went in search of acai frozen smoothie mix (as I haven't seen it yet where I am in Canada) and found some from Sambazon at Whole Foods. (Check their website to find a dealer near you.) It's about $4.99 for four 100g gram packages.…

80/10/10 Recipe: Banana Raspberry Pineapple Smoothie

Relevance: 35%      Posted on: March 30, 2012

  Spring is coming! I know it! We're getting a few sunny days in between the rain here in Vancouver. So sometimes I can take my pictures outside. Yay! I really love pineapple and raspberries in smoothies, I think they make almost as good of a combination as pineapple and black cherries. This is a smoothie I regularly make as it has creaminess from the bananas, the tartness from raspberries, and a tropical pineapple twist to it. As long as you're using fully ripe, spotted bananas as the base you can pretty much throw any frozen fruit into the blender…

How To Tell If A Fruit Is Ripe Enough To Eat – Banana, Peach, Nectarine, Pear, Kiwi, Apple, Orange and Tomato

Relevance: 35%      Posted on: March 21, 2012

Sometimes you want to know if the fruit you are eating is actually ripe. Especially if you're eating it raw or in a salad, you want to make sure that it's at the peak ripeness (flavour and sweetness) and that it will taste good and not be sour, starchy, bitter or pasty and inedible. Here I show you how to tell if your most common fruits in North America are ripe and when you want to eat them. I couldn't tell from my perspective what the banana would look like when I peeled it. What I meant was that the…

Tropical Mango Banana Acai Bowl

Relevance: 34%      Posted on: May 8, 2013

I have another delicious acai bowl recipe for you with mango and banana. This one is similar to my Acai Banana Berry Bowl Recipe , but it's perfect for summer with this tropical twist. Basically you can top your acai bowl with anything you want, but I know some of you have never had one before and are unsure how to make them at home. Acai is usually sold in a frozen puree for use in smoothies, acai bowls and frozen desserts. You can also buy acai juice, powder and supplements, but I stick with the puree because it's delicious and…

80/10/10 Recipe: Beginner’s Green Smoothie Banana Blueberry Spinach

Relevance: 33%      Posted on: April 11, 2012

For some of you green smoothies might be something new, or something you've heard of but never tried. Others may make green smoothies regularly and enjoy them. I wanted to share a really easy green smoothie recipe with you today. Something I would call a "basic" or "beginner's green smoothie". #1. Because it's not too frightening looking and you can tell it has berries in it (this may seem a little normal looking). This may also appeal to people who are afraid of drinking something that looks like green grass! #2. It tastes very nice and you cannot detect any…
