Perfect Air Fried Corn-on-the-Cob

Snapseed 3.jpg

As if I needed another way to use my air fryer…

I don’t think I’ve ever actually bought corn-on-the-cob when shopping for my own groceries. It was only something I’d have at home when one of my parents made it. The process of cooking it was just too unappealing to me, and frozen corn seemed so much easier.

BUT, then I saw these corn on sale 8 for $1, and there’s no way this bargain hunter is going to pass up a deal like that. Now I’ve been buying corn every week!


I’ve been using all of my different Eat Clean Essentials seasonings to make different flavor combinations, and I have yet to find one that isn’t worth sharing! I’ll list a few of my favorites below, and they can all be used with this basic recipe. There’s SO many more possibilities though, so be sure to check out this spice collection and use code ‘KYLA15’ for a discount!

(P.S. I do not make money from this, it’s just for you to use!)


Combos:

  • Maple BBQ + maple syrup

  • Limon & Chile + lime juice

  • Lori’s No-Salt Seasoning + dijon mustard

  • Pizza is Life + garlic powder + Parmesan

  • Maple Doodle + maple syrup (a sweet combo!)

  • Grill Master + coconut aminos

  • Spicy Buffalo + plain greek yogurt + hot sauce

Frozen Chocolate Protein Bites

I make a lot of different protein balls (you can find some recipes here), but these guys are perfect for the warm weather that is finally making its way in!

They’re frozen treats that’ll keep you cool, but each one has almost 5 grams of super high quality plant protein, too! It’s a win-win :)

5-Minute Vegan Caramel Dip

IMG_7193.PNG

I most definitely do not follow a vegan diet (but if that’s what works for you, more power to ya!). I do, however, absolutely LOVE recipes that are quick, easy, healthy, and use a simple list of simple ingredients. Cue this dip! It works for both kinds of people :)

When I asked my mom to try it, she said, and I quote, “You could literally jar this.” I promise you… it really is THAT good!

What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 2 small pitted dates

  • 3 TB raw cashews

  • 2 TB almond butter

  • cinnamon, vanilla extract, and sea salt, to taste

Blend everything together in a high speed blender and DEVOUR! You can cover and store this in the fridge for up to a week as well, just be aware that it firms up pretty good so you may want to let it sit out for a few minutes when you go back to eat it.


serve it up with…

  • apples

  • bananas

  • pears

  • grapes

  • pretzels

  • drizzle on popcorn

  • cinnamon sugar pita chips

  • ice cream

  • nuts

  • drizzle on pancakes or waffles

  • cheesecake

  • brownies

  • yogurt

  • pictured here is a pumpkin KBosh Foods pizza crust baked into ‘crackers’

And the list goes on!

Comment if you have any other dipping ideas :)

Strawberry Bliss Balls

IMG_4515.JPG

Protein, energy, and fat balls are some of my favorite snacks to have prepped in the fridge. I’ve made so many different flavors and varieties, and the options are nearly endless! These “Strawberry Bliss Balls” are perfect when you need a sweet bite in the afternoon to hold you over.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup mixed raw almonds/cashews

  • 2 pitted dates

  • 2 TB coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried strawberries

  • 3 TB mixed hemp/flax seed

  • 2 TB coconut flakes + more for rolling

  • 1/4 cup nut butter

  • dash of vanilla extract

Pulse everything in a food processor until well combined. Roll into balls, roll in coconut flakes, and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week!

**TIP: I like to make the balls different sizes, in case I’m more hungry at certain times than others.


Avocado Tahini Cream

IMG_4762.JPG

Like most of my “recipes”, this totally came together on a whim to use up an avocado that was going to go bad. I love it when I accidentally create a masterpiece!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 large ripe avocado

  • 2 TB tahini

  • 1 TB olive oil

  • 2 tsp. lemon juice

  • 3 TB almond milk

  • 1/2-1 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • dash of black pepper

  • optional: 1 tsp. of any herb seasoning mix you might have (I use “herbaceous” from eatcleanessentials.com; you can use my discount code KYLA15 if you’d like to try it!)

Blend everything in a high speed blender, and that’s it! You can adjust seasonings to taste and adjust liquid based on what you want to use it for— keep it creamy to put on toast or tacos, use it like a cream sauce for pasta, or add more nut milk or oil for more of a “dressing”. So many possibilities!
