Chocolate Avocado Milkshake

Avocado in a milkshake might sound unusual, but in Vietnam it’s a traditional treat that you can order in local restaurants. Enjoy a creamy, rich shake while getting a serving of vegetables to boot!

Balsamic Asparagus

Asparagus is the quintessential spring vegetable but is easy to find year-round. Balsamic mixed with chicken broth and cornstarch adds a sweet-and-sour flavor to this dish. Top with grilled, sliced chicken to make it a meal.

Crock-Pot Baked Apples

This was an old stand-by in our family home on icy Pittsburgh winter nights when cold weather kept us indoors. This dessert has the same flavors as apple pie without the guilt of a fattening crust!

Crostini with White Cheddar, Apples and Onion

Try this elegant and low-fat party appetizer in place of the usual, calorie-rich fare you’ll find at most gatherings. Apples and onion can be made up to one day ahead and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Grapefruit Cupcakes with Chai Icing

Grapefruit and buttermilk are both high in nutrition, but create a tender texture in baked goods. When I bake these for friends’ birthdays, no one guesses that they are made with grapefruit. Regardless, they disappear fast!

Irish Drop Cookies

I call these cookies ‘Irish’ because their green hue makes them perfect for St. Patty’s Day. Instead of using food coloring, I mix in anti-oxidant green tea powder that helps make these low-sugar cookies even healthier!

Twice Baked Sweet Potato with Cheese and Jalapenos

Sweet potatoes have a naturally creamy texture. They also happen to have over 200% of your daily vitamin A per serving. Lower in carbs than white potatoes, they make sense for a lower carb diet and I added Cabot cheese, my favorite reduced fat cheese

Grapefruit Bellini

This Bellini is rich in vitamin C with the addition of grapefruit juice. Nutmeg adds spicy sweetness to this peach-based drink. Find out more about the health benefits of grapefruit.
