I always find chia pudding hard to get right and it often ends up not tasting much, so I’m definitely trying this recipe from vegetarian snob out this weekend. I mean how can anything with pumpkin be anything but delicious…
- 1-2 shots of espresso (or ¼-½ cup of brewed coffee)
- ½ cup canned coconut milk
- 2 Tbl of pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- ½ tsp of ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
- ¼ cup of chia seeds
- Begin by making your shots of espresso or brewing your coffee.
- You could probably just throw everything in your jar or bowl and stir, but I always miscalculate how much space my jar can handle, so I suggest making your pumpkin spice latte separately then pouring the whole thing over your chia seeds.
- Pour your coffee into a large mug/bowl and add in your coconut milk (if you want to sneak sips before making your pudding, warm your milk up!). Stir until your coffee is creamy.
- Add in your pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, vanilla, and maple syrup (or whichever sweetener you’re using), and stir until your coffee is well mixed and everything is incorporated. Try it here. Taste for spice, sugar, and creaminess.
- Add your chia seeds to an empty jar (my preferred method) or bowl, and pour over your pumpkin spiced latte!
- Stir, or shake vigorously so that the seeds don’t all clump together. Once your seeds are all independent and non-sticky, seal your jar or cover your bowl.
- Place in the fridge to let the chia seeds absorb the liquid and puff up, for about 3 hours, or preferably, overnight. The longer you wait, the larger the chia seeds will get and the thicker the pudding.
It’s a new month and I’m finally going to get my life in order! And we’ll start with eating healthy, so naturally I found this chocolate cake recipe that I’m just dying to try…..
I found this recipe on pintrest and it’s originaly from Delicious Obsessions and it looks so easy.
1 cup mashed banana (about 2)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. coconut milk or coconut water
½ cup dairy-free chocolate chips
1 cup cocoa powder
¼ cup honey
½ tsp. baking soda
Preheat oven to 355 and grease a 9×9 inch baking dish. Place everything in blender except baking soda and puree until smooth. Pulse in baking soda and spread batter into prepared dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until knife comes out clean. Let cool for about 10 minutes before removing.
Abandoned Love’ is a participatory photo series in which I had people from all over the world (Australia, UK, USA) on Tumblr send me private thoughts, diary entries, text messages, etc to which I then created into banners and placed on abandoned buildings. This project was inspired by Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher’s Learning to Love You More and Klaudija Visockyte’s Please Don’t Leave Me series; Also I would like to credit Anna Ladd’s things i told the internet but didn’t tell my mom because it is similar to this project, so if you like ‘Abandoned Love’ then you should definitely check out those projects too. – Peyton Fulford
Last week I spent the weekend at my parents house, and while being nice sometimes it gets a bit boring. And since food is my go to in every occasion (
sad, angry, stressed…) I decided to bake this lovely cake from the local rose. One of my favorite holistic lifestyle blogs and the cake is so good! We finished the entire cake in one go
Cardamom Citrus Cake
1 cup olive oil
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons organic sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon organic cardamom
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs (at room temperature)
4 medium organic lemons zested
3 medium organic oranges zested
1 cup gluten free flour
1/2 cup almond meal
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 blood orange
Preheat the oven to 335°F (170°C). Oil your pan generously so the cake won’t stick.
Zest the citrus into a medium sized bowl. Add the olive oil, sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk in the eggs until combined. In the same bowl, add the flours, baking powder and cardamom and stir until combined.
Pour the batter into the baking mold. Peel the blood orange and slice into 1/4 inch rounds. Place on top of the cake.
Bake the cake until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean around 30 to 45 min.
This is probably one of the best ways I’ve ever seen anyone deal with online haters!
