I’m totally crushing on Daniella Monet! Whether you know her as Trina Vega on Victorious or from her work with peta2, it’s impossible not to like this chick. As a self-proclaimed “lifestyle enthusiast,” Daniella fills her Instagram with yummy, healthy recipes, adorable outfit ideas, and inspirational quotes to keep your mind and body happy.

We recently asked her to show us her favorite vegan recipes for summer, and she did not disappoint! In just a few minutes—and with only a few ingredients—Daniella whipped up ridiculously simple chia seed pudding, a strawberry-banana smoothie perfect for lounging by the pool, and avocado toast packed with protein. Check it out, but be forewarned … this video will make you hungry!

Eating healthy (and tasty!) vegan meals is the best thing you can do for your body, animals, and the planet. Look for dairy alternatives such as soy milk or almond milk at your local grocery store, and stock up on “accidentally vegan” snacks while you’re at it. Before you know it, you’ll be cooking up your own animal-friendly dishes for every occasion!
