With golden raisins, unsweetened applesauce, and pumpkin pie spice this no-bake recipe for Apple Blondies with Walnuts is perfect for fall (and any time of year).

They have just the right amount of sweetness, and thanks to the protein and healthy fats, they’re a great healthy snack.

Not a big fan of raisins? Leave them out or swap in another dried fruit, like shredded coconut, dried apple pieces, or cranberries to create Cranapple Blondies.

S'mores recipe

If you’re craving chocolatey marshmallow and graham crackers, then make a batch of these No-Bake S’mores Bars. No campfire needed!

These sweet treats get their toasty marshmallow essence from a few drops of optional marshmallow flavor (pure vanilla extract is a good substitute).

Creamy Vanilla Shakeology mixed with ricotta serves as the “marshmallow,” and Chocolate Shakeology forms the brownie-like base and crunchy chocolate topping.

Apple Cinnamon quesadilla recipe

5. Apple Cinnamon Quesadilla

This sweet quesadilla takes dessert to a whole new level.

The original recipe is incredible, but there are plenty of ways to modify it: Instead of apples, try sliced pears or peaches, or use an all-fruit spread.

Swap the cinnamon for ground ginger or nutmeg.

For a slightly lower-calorie treat, use Neufchâtel cheese instead of cream cheese (available in most grocery stores right next to the cream cheese).

pumpkin pie energy bites

6. Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites

The secret ingredient in these delicious little pumpkin “energy” bites?


The sweet and sticky fruit holds all the good stuff in this recipe together and is known to be a great source of energy and fiber.

Sweetened with pure maple syrup and rolled in coconut flakes, these treats are a clean alternative to candy and cake cravings.

Raw pecans and hazelnut extract take the nutty and earthy flavors up a notch — because healthy doesn’t have to be boring.

ice cream sandwich recipe

9. Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches

The peanut butter ice cream — or “nice cream” — is made from all-natural peanut butter, unsweetened almond milk, and Chocolate Shakeology.

The mini cookies are made with almond flour and sweetened with just two tablespoons of maple syrup for the whole batch.

You can use Chocolate Shakeology if you prefer, though it will change the nutritional information a little bit.

Portion Fix dessert recipe

10. Blueberry Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is a clever way to use up stale bread. Our Blueberry Bread Pudding recipe uses whole-grain bread, almond milk, maple syrup, and fresh (or frozen) blueberries.

The end result is a soft, custardy dish that’s every bit as satisfying as classic bread pudding.

When cooking or baking with frozen blueberries, leave them in the freezer until just before you add them to the batter.

You’ll get a prettier result — the color of frozen berries tends to bleed as they start to defrost.

Unicorn Bark recipe

14. Unicorn Bark

Unicorns may not exist, but you can make the next best thing: Unicorn Bark.

This frozen yogurt Unicorn Bark is made with yogurt, fruit, and Vanilla Shakeology (which is kind of like magic, amirite?). Unicorn bark is usually made with sugar, more sugar, food coloring, and lots of sprinkles.

We used blueberries, strawberries, and mango to make three different colors of yogurt, then swirled them together for a healthier version.

To make this Unicorn Bark recipe without a blender, simply mash each fruit in a separate bowl. Add ¾ cup yogurt, 1 scoop Shakeology, and 1½ tsp. honey to each bowl and mix well.

These energy balls are made with shredded carrots, oats, Vanilla Shakeology, and dates for a touch of sweetness.

The right balance of cinnamon, clove, and ginger make you feel like you’re enjoying a real bite of carrot cake.

Freshly grated carrots are wet and may make the “dough” a little sticky, so use a paper towel to squeeze out the excess moisture.

You can also buy pre-shredded carrots at your grocery store.

Vegan Sugar Cookies

18. Vegan Sugar Cookies

These Vegan Sugar Cookies are super easy to make and require just seven ingredients. Typically sugar cookies are synonymous with heaps of white sugar and plenty of butter.

But these are completely vegan and gluten-free — there’s zero butter or wheat flour in these Vegan Sugar Cookies.

Coconut oil provides a decadent “buttery” feel without the dairy.

And rather than bleached white flour, we use gluten-free almond flour, and sugar is replaced with maple syrup for a touch sweetness.
