The Perfect Simple Valentine’s Day Menu ♡
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I never know exactly what Brian and I will do to celebrate until right before ~ I like to keep it stress-free and mellow! Some of our best Valentines have been making dinner at home, sipping wine, and hanging with the fur babes.
But you know that I always have some Lean, Clean, ‘N Green recipes in my back pocket. Today I’m sharing my faves for the ultimate Valentine’s Day menu. Chocolate may or may not be the main ingredient in a few of them 😉 All of the recipes are super simple to throw together, leaving you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the evening with your love…because that’s what it’s all about ❤️
Chocolate Fruit Skewers
I mean… dessert before dinner amiright?! 😹 It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without some chocolate covered fruit! We love using a dark and white chocolate combo for added flavor and color.
2 cups of your favorite fruit
1/4 cup melted dark chocolate
2 Tbsp. melted white chocolate
4 wooden or bamboo skewers
1. Add fruit to each skewer. Place filled skewers on a plate.
2. Dip a fork into the dark chocolate and drizzle the chocolate over the skewers. Rinse the fork then repeat with the white chocolate.
3. Put in the fridge for at least 10 minutes before serving.
My Simple Salmon Bake
Keeping it simple on Valentine’s Day is really important to me so that I’m not stressing about dinner and instead focusing on spending time with Brian. This recipe is so flavorful with fresh lemons and rosemary. It also requires minimal prep work, which is always a plus!

Champagne + Raspberries
This combo is SO easy…and who doesn’t love champagne on Valentine’s Day? Add a little squeeze of lemon for a citrusy touch.
8 oz. chilled champagne
1. Pour 4 ounces of champagne into each champagne flute.
2. Add 1-2 raspberries and a squeeze of lemon juice.
You can also do kombucha or sparkling water with a squeeze of lemon in a wine glass!
Chocolate Berry Muffin
Aka the Stud Muffin ;) Brian is always whipping up delish dinners for me, so I decided to make him THIS chocolate treat for him! Best part ~ you can make a batch and save the extras for snack time!
And don’t forget to show your girls some extra LOVE too! We put together the ultimate Galentine’s Gift Guide for you HERE! Every year, I send a Galentine’s Day package to my grandma in Connecticut and my friends from college in Boston. Even the smallest gift or card will bring a smile to someone’s face and make her day ❤️
