Please enjoy this super easy 5 minute chia pudding as a salute to super easy healthy recipes made in a blender! This is one of go-to quick desserts if somebody comes over for dinner at the last minute or I feel like a quick treat. I LOVE this almond version that tastes like marzipan. But you could add vanilla extract and stir in a mashed banana and a teaspoon of cinnamon, or stir through berries or other fruit.

If the world were ending, I might just whip up this decadent treat as my finale. A rice pudding that you don’t have to stir for an hour? Now that makes me weak in the knees. Other reasons to swoon over this dessert: the incredible creaminess and the delicate blend of spices that sing in perfect harmony with the apples, raisins, and maple syrup.

I think of this salad dressing as the culinary equivalent of my little black dress—a staple that gets pulled out, works for most occasions, and never goes out of style. I love the peppery notes in this dressing, but any blend of herbs and greens can yield spectacular results. This lean green dressing machine will transform even the most tragic mound of lettuce from drab to fab. People swoon when they taste it. Many a friend has exclaimed in the midst of a euphoric bite, “Oh, I could just gobble this up with a spoon!” I have done that, and also licked it out of the blender carriage before it even had the chance to get dressed up.
