5 Easy 5-Ingredient (or less!) Weekday Spring Favorites!


Time to shake off the winter chill and celebrate spring! We’ve put together five flavor-packed recipes, each with five ingredients or less, to get you in and out of the kitchen with plenty of time left over to enjoy the sunshine.



Rise-and-Shine Avocado Coconut Milk Shake – Start your day right with this simple, satisfying, 5-ingredient smoothie. Dates and bananas add natural sweetness, while avocado and coconut milk give it a creamy, rich base. A final touch of vanilla rounds out the flavor.


Snacking-Made-Simple Greek Yogurt Black Bean Dip – Throw this quick dip together for an easy “wow” at an outdoor barbeque, or for a satisfying afternoon snack. Protein-packed Greek yogurt and black beans are sure to satisfy, while salsa, cilantro and cumin provide a pop of fresh flavors.


Weeknight-Dinner-in-Under-20 Minutes Ginger Soy Salmon –  Not only does this show-stopping salmon only have five ingredients, it also only requires five minutes of hands-on prep time. Pop it in the oven, toss together a quick side salad and you’ve got a full meal on the table in 20 minutes or less. You can’t even get delivery that quickly!


5-Minute-Prep Coconut Chocolate Cookies – Quick and easy, this cookie recipe is the ultimate in simplicity. Just mix, spoon out and bake! No gluten, no dairy, no nuts, no problem. Shredded coconut provides the base for rich, melted chocolate chips, and maple syrup adds sweetness and essential minerals. Be warned: they will also disappear in five minutes…


Quick All-Natural Sweet Potato Orange Biscuits – These date-sweetened treats only have four ingredients total, all of which are packed with nutrients. With 140% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin C in each cookie, you’re basically fighting off colds and flus with every bite you take (in case you needed an excuse to eat more than one…..)
