But since the holidays are jam-packed with sweet treats around every corner, I thought I would share some ways to not only make healthier treats in your household, but use up some of your leftover treats in creative ways, all with the help of Daily Harvest! Daily Harvest delivers their delicious food to your doorstep so you can pop everything in the freezer and feed your family and guests whenever need be! They have Smoothies, Harvest Bowls, Flatbreads, Oat Bowls, Bites, Scoops, Soups, and more! And all of their collections are gluten-free, dairy-free, plant-based, and have no gums, fillers, refined sugars or preservatives! And with every Daily Harvest collection, you’ll get tons of whole fruits and vegetables into your diet, that are frozen always at the peak of ripeness. That means everything tastes fresh and absolutely delicious, while also locking in all of the nutrients!

Now let’s dig into some ways to whip up dessert in a creative way, all with extra fruits and veggies in every bite! First up, how about a cranberry ice cream sundae!! If you have leftover cranberry sauce, you’re all set! If you don’t, simply add fresh cranberries to a pot with some water and maple sugar or honey, then bring to a boil until the cranberries break and the liquid cooks off to create a thick, luscious cranberry sauce. Then all you have to do is top it with Daily Harvest Strawberry + Rich, Rippled Berry Compote Scoops that have strawberry, raspberry, dragon fruit, and probiotics, and some fresh whipped cream! This is one of my favorite Scoops because it’s the sweet and tart flavor!

Another treat you could make is a coffee brownie sundae! This would be perfect for your adult guests! First, you’ll want to make my Secret Ingredient Brownies that have sweet potato, zucchini, AND spinach in them. Then top it with Daily Harvest Cold Brew + Roasted Espresso Bean Chip Scoops that have organic cold brew, cashews, and even chaga mushrooms. And the finishing touch is their Espresso Bean + Tahini Bites on top, which have freaking parsnip, flax seed, and sesame seed in them!! This will load your guests up with 4 different vegetables along with a ton of nutrients from the nuts and seeds!

And if you’ve been apple picking lately and have a basket loaded with extra apples, all you need to do is cook them in a pan with some ghee, maple sugar, apple pie spice, then finish them off with some cream! And while they are soft and still warm from the pan, top them with my favorite Strawberry + Rich, Rippled Berry Compote Scoops. This mixture of apples with fresh berries is PERFECTION. Of all the desserts, this one is my absolute favorite. This sweet treat will have you and your family or guests enjoying 4 different fruits and it won’t leave you feeling overly full or weighed down!

And to close out the day, give my Pumpkin Pie Trifle a try! If you have any leftover pumpkin pie this holiday season and are not sure what to do with it, crumble up some pieces and add it to a jar with fresh whipped cream and Daily Harvest Cacao Nib + Vanilla Bites. These bites have chickpeas, coconut, kabocha squash, and maca! The small jar trifles will help you cut down the portion size of your pumpkin pie while you add extra nutrients with the crumbled bites throughout!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.
