{Nourish} Cool Weather Cobbler

Cool Weather Cobbler with Cranberries and Ginger @KatieCavutoRDAs far as I am concerned, every season deserves a cobbler or crumble of sorts. While I tend not to have much of a sweet tooth (pass the potato chips, please), I love fruit and roasted fruit may just top the list of my favorite desserts–they simply feel more savory to me. This cool weather cobbler is packed with fall flavors including savory spices like ginger and cinnamon. Apple and pears cozy up together with antioxidant rich, immune boosting cherries and cranberries for a colorful, sweet and tart, treat that is really satisfying. The crumble is bolstered by the richness of almonds and pumpkin seeds which add texture, satiating healthy fats and an added boost of nutrient density. A touch of maple syrup is all you need to accent this naturally sweet dessert that is honestly so good for you I would eat it for breakfast too! Bonus, you can swap the fruit depending on the season. Peaches, rhubarb, berries–they would all work beautifully in this recipe! Continue reading “{Nourish} Cool Weather Cobbler”

On that note…yay for Friday and for your new favorite smoothie bowl recipe that is here, just in time for the weekend! Continue reading “{Nourish} Chai Spiced Peach and Almond Butter Smoothie Bowl”

{Nourish} Spiced Cranberry Apple and Hemp Smoothie

Spiced Cranberry Apple SmoothieCold and flu season is upon us so it is important that we do everything in our power to support our immune systems so we don’t wind up sick. This Cranberry Apple and Ginger smoothie will definitely do the trick. Winter smoothies, though counter-intuitive, are a delicious, nutrient dense way to consume a variety of goodies including out-of-season produce which is still available frozen. Plus, I love playing around with seasonal flavors by using citrus, ginger and savory spices like cardamon and cinnamon which can even substitute for added sugar!
