I believe that if you’re going to treat yourself, you can nourish yourself at the same time — so this year I’m putting a whole food spin on traditional holiday sweets. These are my kind of treats — the ones you feel really good about indulging in (sometimes I even have them with my morning coffee!). Next time you’re looking for a quick, no-bake, holiday party treat, try my Dark Chocolate Raspberry Energy Bites! They’re a healthier alternative to traditional holiday truffles or rich, chocolate-based desserts. They’re also vegan and free of gluten and refined sugar — perfect for parties where guests have food sensitivities and allergies. You can whip these festive little bites up in just 10 minutes, and keep them on-hand for last-minute guests, holiday gatherings, or all for yourself!
Today I’m sharing my favourite green juice recipe — Lean Green Protein Juice! I love this recipe for a few reasons:
1. It’s quick to make and I usually have all the ingredients on hand
2. It’s a perfect on-the-go option when I’m busy
3. It’s full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and complete protein
4. When I drink it consistently my skin is more radiant
5. It’s absolutely delicious!
Are you looking for a quick and clean spring brunch idea this long weekend? I’ve got you covered!

Need to make a last minute dessert this weekend? Whip up my Vegan Dark Chocolate Dipped Strawberries in ten minutes or less, with only 4 ingredients (including the strawberries) that I bet you already have in your kitchen! They’re super clean, made with natural ingredients, vegan, dairy free and gluten free.
I get together with my college friends once a week for dinner. Each week we alternate who hosts, and if you’re not hosting, you bring a bottle of wine for everyone to enjoy. Pretty sweet deal, right? I absolutely love our little tradition and look forward to catching up with my girls each week.
Last time I hosted dinner, I made basa fish tacos with all the fixings — and today I’m sharing the recipes for my favourite 3 Fresh & Festive Taco Toppings! I really enjoy authentic Mexican food, and could happily eat it everyday for the rest of my life. The flavours are so fresh and festive!
To kick things off here at JustineCelina, I thought I would share a recipe for one of my most popular Instagram photos. I came up this this recipe during an intense flowering hibiscus tea drinking phase earlier this winter. Hibiscus tea always reminds me of the time I’ve spent in Huatulco Mexico, where hibiscus flowers grow wild. I’m transported back to that place every time I take a sip! In Mexico, the dried hibiscus flowers used to make this tea are known as “Jamaica” (pronounced hah-mike-ah). My Super C Hibiscus Berry Smoothie is inspired by an Agua de Jamaica drink I enjoyed during my last trip.
