Acai bowls, or smoothie bowls, are the newest rave. Although they’re super healthy, they’re not only for the health nuts.  They’re a low-calorie, delicious snack that gives you lots of necessary vitamins and satisfies your fruit serving for the day! Chelsea Crockett - Acai Bowl Here’s how you can make your own right at home.

There are tons of different bowls you can make from Hawaiian, with lots of tropical fruits, or more of a sweet one with peanut butter and granola!  But for this recipe, I’ll just start with something simple and delicious!  You’ll first need a few ingredients: 1/2 a banana, 1 tbsp of cocoa powder, 1 1/2 tsp of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries, half cup of almond milk, and 1 3.5oz pack of frozen acai berries or acai berry pulp.

As far as preparation goes, you’ll need to put all of these ingredients in a blender to make an acai puree.  Then add your toppings! I suggest adding sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, granola, and some peanut butter drizzle on top to finish it off.  Then, simply enjoy!

Are you going to try and create one for yourself?  Let me know how yummy yours turns out! 🙂

Nutella and peanut butter: the world’s best combination now in cookie form! When I heard about these cookies I knew I had to try them for myself. Thank goodness I did! They are delicious and all my friends looooove them. Here is how to make these chocolatey bits of joy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 -3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon saltdownload
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 room temperature egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Nutella

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set it aside. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter and both sugars. Beat on medium speed for about 5 minutes, until it is creamy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if you need to. Turn the mixer down to low speed and then slowly add the dry ingredients. Beat until just combined. Use a large wooden spoon to gently stir in the Nutella. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Measure out a tablespoon of dough for each cookie. Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern on each and bake for 8-9 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheets for about 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

These sound like the perfect late night munchy, or a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth!

XOXO, Chels

Waking up for school can be a struggle, but making yourself a decently healthy breakfast before school is an even bigger struggle!  It’s easy to just grab a granola bar, pour yourself a sugary bowl of cereal, or worse, skip breakfast all together.  I’ve got the perfect (and healthy) muffin recipe you can whip up on the weekend and eat throughout the week! Chelsea Crockett- healthy chocolate muffins

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.  In a food processor or large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  Once mixed, the batter will be VERY sticky.  Make sure to grease the pan before pouring the mixture into the molds.  Try using a wet spoon to get the batter out.  Place the muffins in the oven for 15 minutes and wait until they are completely cool before chowing down!  They should last up to a week if you place them in the fridge!  Hope you enjoy!

Love,

Chelsea

Craving something sweet and salty? These pretzel bites will put a pep in your step! All you need is:

 -1 cup creamy peanut butter

-2 tablespoons softened butter
-1/2 cup powdered sugar
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-Pretzels
-1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

 1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set it aside.

2. In the bowl of a mixer, beat peanut butter and butter until it is all mixed together. Scrape the sides of the bowl, add the sugars, and beat until combined. You should be able to roll the mixture into balls without it sticking to your hands. If you need to, add more powdered sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll.
chelsea crockett pretzels3. Roll the mixture into small balls, about 1 teaspoon of mixture for each ball, and place on the baking sheet. Sandwich the balls between two pretzels and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

4. After they have frozen, melt your chocolate chips in a sauce pan and dip the pretzels into the melted chocolate. Place these in your refrigerator to cool. Store them in the refrigerator, also, because they taste better cold!

 

You can take these to parties, or just make them for yourself if you are craving something sweet!
