Cherry Rose Dairy-Free Ice Cream I’ve been obsessed with making homemade, healthier ice cream the past several summers, and now with the addition of my new ice cream maker (it’s only $59 too!), it has been even more fun creating unique ice cream flavors. Plus, these hot summer Texas days have me craving ice cream on the regular! What inspired this Cherry Rose Dairy-Free Ice Cream was a beautiful photo on the cover of Food & Wine Magazine, the June edition. It looked absolutely delicious. I adapted the recipe to be dairy-free, refined sugar free, less ingredients, plus added in the unique flavor of rose water with dried rose petals sprinkled on top.  keep reading

Cherry and Lemon Acai Bowl I have to admit, I looked in my fridge and threw this smoothie bowl concoction together on a whim! I didn’t know how it would turn out with the addition of the lemon juice. I love lemon and add lemon juice to the majority of my juices, however, I’m not sure why I wasn’t adding it to my smoothies. Well, I did, and I love how it turned out. There’s just a hint of that fresh, citrus taste and then with the sweet cherries and acai, this bowl has quickly become a favorite of mine and my hubs! He actually said, “who needs ice cream when you have that?!” It was so cute he said that and said it with such enthusiasm. That means a lot especially because he does love ice cream! With that kind of encouragement, I knew I had to share on the blog!  keep reading

Chocolate Chip Cake Pops with Roses So, I have to admit I am a chocolate lover! Dark chocolate lover to be exact. And I love creating recipes with chocolate…if you haven’t noticed by now. Luckily, chocolate can be a healthier treat! Depending on the quality, ingredients, amount and source of sugar used in the chocolate, it can definitely be nutritionist-approved. For this recipe, I used my favorite high-quality brand of dark chocolate chips.  keep reading

Apple Fauxnuts Yes, I’m back with another apple post!  Two posts in a row!  I just can’t help it, apples are just too good in the fall.  If you missed last week’s Apple Pie Smoothie, make sure to check it out! It’s a great seasonal breakfast.   Plus, I included a little info on apples you might find interesting. I’ve been slicing apples and topping with almond butter and dark chocolate chips for some time now, but it wasn’t until I came across the Lorna Jane blog post on apple fauxnuts that I was inspired to make my snack look like donuts and to get even more creative with my toppings! These fauxnuts are a perfect snack, breakfast or dessert.  Plus, they are super fun to make since they look like donuts and you can add all kinds of fun toppings!  Unlike donuts, however, there is no guilt with enjoying these treats plus they are gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free, basically all kinds of free.  Plus, all the goodness from the apples and protein and healthy fats from the almond butter.  I prefer the freshly ground almond butter from Whole Foods that you grind yourself.  keep reading
