Spring recipes

We have around one month left of Spring, as it officially ends on June 20th. Hope the weather is getting nicer where you live, and you’ve been able to start making some Spring recipes, full of seasonal fruits and vegetables.

In case you haven’t or are looking for some more inspiration, here is a list of 21 Spring recipes that will delight your taste buds as well as fill you with health-promoting nutrients. Some are fancy enough to serve at a dinner party while others are perfect for a quiet, simple meal.

We break it up into breakfast, lunches, snacks, mocktails, appetizers, dinners and desserts. For each category, we picked three great recipes that usually use seasonal ingredients. Get ready to pick up a few new ingredients at your local farmer’s market or grocery store, plus make use of certain Ancient Nutrition supplements

BREAKFASTS

Egg bites recipe

1. Egg Bites

These small muffin-sized egg bites are a super healthy, fun way to have breakfast. Make them for a brunch. They pair well with a protein shake, some fresh fruit or work well by themselves.

2. Collagen Overnight Oats

This basic overnight oats recipe uses only five ingredients, including fresh strawberries. It lets you enjoy a delicious, collagen-rich breakfast while requiring zero morning prep time.

3. Collagen Matcha Smoothie

Matcha is super popular today, and here's a matcha smoothie with collagen and multiple other healthy ingredients that will quickly become one of your favorites to make. Great macros, with 32 grams of carbs, 23 grams of fat and 16 grams of protein.

LUNCHES

Asparagus soup

4. Asparagus Soup

Asparagus soup is one of Spring’s best, and the ingredients in this version will make it creamy without the cream! The flavor is sophisticated and delicious, plus this soup is loaded with nutrition (and even protein).

5. Quinoa Bowl

Quinoa bowls are trending, from fast casual restaurants to cafes, but they're also really easy to make at home. Try this spin on the quinoa bowl recipe, which is loaded with plant-based protein and flavor, in part courtesy of a sublime miso tahini dressing.

6. Turmeric Tuna Salad

The standard tuna salad recipe ingredients are transformed with Bone Broth Protein Turmeric and makes this into a unique, show-stopper. Low in carbs yet very high in protein.

SNACKS

Lemon lavender cupcakes

7. Lemon Lavender Cupcakes

These lemon lavender cupcakes are an ideal Spring treat as they're full of seasonal flavors with lavender, lemon and vanilla blending together perfectly.

8. Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies

Bored of oatmeal raisin cookies or want a healthier version? Make up these strawberry oatmeal cookies that have the right level of sweetness and ideal texture.

9. Blueberry Donut Holes

Donut holes are one of the more fun snacks to make, especially with these tasty, healthy ingredients. The blueberry and cardamom taste will delight, guaranteed.

MOCKTAILS

Mangorita

10. Mangorita

Among mocktails, the mangorita is fast becoming the most popular because of its delicious taste alongside it being loaded with vitamins and minerals. This version adds the new Organic SuperGreens Mango powder to pack an extra wallop.

11. Pink Drink

Rather than overpay for a simple drink with less than ideal ingredients (and too much sugar), you can make it at home with the best ingredients (including strawberries) and sip with the comfort knowing that it's good for you.

12. Ginger Turmeric Tonic

A ginger turmeric tonic is part of a nonalcoholic drink trend, including cleansing recipes that are full of healthy ingredients that are still fun to drink.

APPETIZERS

Kale quinoa cakes

13. Kale Quinoa Cakes

Looking for an incredibly versatile veggie-based appetizer or even entree? These kale quinoa cakes are nutritional superstars, with balanced macronutrients: 14 grams of carbohydrates, 13 grams of fat and 17 grams of protein per cake.

14. Classic Hummus

You've probably had hummus, but did you know you can make your own classic hummus and make it taste it even better? It’s a creamy spread made from chickpeas (garbanzo beans) along with some good fats and spices.

15. Mashed Cauliflower

Whenever you're preparing a meal in which mashed potatoes would make a good pairing, consider making a healthier substitute instead: mashed cauliflower!

DINNERS

Mushroom risotto

16. Mushroom Risotto

Risotto is one of those dishes that everyone has heard of, but a surprisingly high percentage of people have never made it! While most risottos are heavy on carbs, this one is balanced beautifully by offering plenty of protein as well.

17. Liver and Onions

Want to make one of the most nutrient-dense dinners on the planet? Make up these liver and onions. You will be surprised how delicious it can be when prepared correctly.

18. Greek Yogurt Chicken Marinade

The most common choice in Greek cuisine for this type of marinade is chicken and can include any kind of chicken meat, including bone-in or boneless chicken breast or thighs, or also chicken legs.

DESSERTS

Lemon tart recipe

19. Lemon Tart

Lemon tart is a classic French dessert, but it doesn't need to be made with tons of flour, cream and sugar in order to be delicious. Try this healthy version of lemon tart.

20. Mexican Chocolate Cake

Ready to make one of the tastiest chocolate cakes? This Mexican chocolate cake uses two favorite spices, cinnamon and cayenne, along with cocoa and other ingredients that marry beautifully. The cinnamon-flavored buttercream is the literal icing on the cake!

21. Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry ice cream usually means eggs, milk and sugar. This healthier, more delicious version uses coconut milk, almond butter, maple syrup and the secret ingredient of Strawberry Lemonade Multi Collagen Protein.
