Make Your Own Acai Bowl

By Integrative Nutrition

Acai bowls are a huge trend in the healthy eating world right now, and for good reason. What’s not to love about a giant bowl of nutrient-dense, low-calorie purple sorbet overflowing with colorful, delicious superfood toppings? Just eating an acai bowl feels like a special occasion. Many shops and cafes go the extra mile with their acai bowls and turn them into mini works of art, featuring spirals and stripes of carefully placed, color-coordinated toppings. Unfortunately, all this superfood artistry comes at a cost. Most acai bowls cost $10-$12, which can add up quickly if you make them a daily habit (which is a good idea for your health, but probably not your wallet).

Panna cotta is a traditional Italian dessert made with heavy cream and gelatin, often prepared in a shaped mold and topped with a decadent sauce. This healthier dairy-free version subs unsweetened cashew milk and coconut cream for typical dairy products and adds dark chocolate for an indulgent twist on the classic concept. It’s served in adorable single-serve dishes, making it the perfect ending to anything from a fancy Italian dinner party to a plate of spaghetti shared with your kids.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

By Integrative Nutrition

Fall in the United States has come to mean one thing – pumpkin! While the actual squash itself is incredibly heathy, it can be hard to avoid the sugary, fatty, refined grain-based pumpkin treats that suddenly appear in grocery stores, cafes, and bakeries the instant the leaves begin to change. This simple and satisfying recipe offers a way to enjoy the festivities of the season while still prioritizing your health goals.

Raw Cashew Custard

By Rebecca Thiessen

Since becoming dairy-free, I have found that one of the most difficult things to substitute has been yogurt – nothing seems to be the right taste, texture and consistency. So, I created an even better alternative and I am so excited to share it with you!
