Reese’s S’mores

Cold Fruits Smoothie Bowl

This smoothie bowl recipe works for fruit-cravers, fruit-and-vegetable evaders and everyone in between.

Frozen raspberries add hits of tartness, and the more toppings, the better.

Chocolate Chip Banana Cake

This is a sort of magic cake. First, because there’s an alchemy that happens between bananas and chocolate when they hang out together and, second, because it never seems to totally freeze and when you have a “hangry” sweet tooth, you can eat it right out of the freezer.
