I’m not saying you should go out and buy every single one of these products, but I am saying that having a few of these lying around in your kitchen is going to make your vegan journey a hell of a lot easier, because it has done for me. And…

Strawberry & Apricot Vegan Smoothie

I have been craving strawberries for what feels like soooo long.
