Krush in the Kitchen Recipe Roundup: Week 6
Week two of our college edition of #KrushintheKitchen brought everything from the Perfect Hard-boiled Egg to a Banana Split Smoothie to Healthy Chocolate Truffles. We continued to stress the importance of setting yourself up for success by having a plan for your wellness journey, and starting small with a habit or two you would like to change.
How can you start small? Through a theory called Crowding it Out! The main concept is that instead of going into a suffering and self-sacrificing mode think about focusing on a replacement to fill the void of that habit you’re looking to change. One of our favorite positive behaviors we like to use to help Crowd Out a negative behavior is Hydration. We make infused waters, cold-pressed juice shots and even mocktails with homemade bubbly water.
On top of Crowing it Out, it’s important to remember that comfort foods don’t have to weigh you down. Michelle’s Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is free of refined sugar, dairy and fake ingredients, but it satisfies the sweet tooth craving all while being delicious!

Golden Mylk Latte
Why we love: We like to call this a hug in a mug. Turmeric has incredible anti-inflammatory properties that are heightened when combined with black pepper, and ginger helps aid in digestion making this a wonderful evening beverage.
- 16 oz coconut mylk
- 1 tsp turmeric/black pepper mix
- 1 tsp ginger (juice or ground)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp maple syrup
Blend all ingredients together to combine and then place in a pan over medium heat to warm through. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon after pouring into mug. Enjoy!
Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Why we love: Dairy can cause your immune system to be bombarded, so we’re always looking for delicious, nutritious ways to substitute it. This banana ice cream is a perfect substitute that allows you to lighten up your respiratory system and viral load while still enjoying the comfort of a bowl of ice cream!
- 4 frozen bananas
- 1 tbsp almond butter (or other nut butter)
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- dark chocolate chips
- coconut flakes
- chocolate covered pretzels
- nuts or dried fruit.
Put all ingredients in a blender and pulse, then blend on low until smooth. Using a spatula, scrape ice cream into a bowl, add desired add-ins.
