Star-Shaped Strawberry Coconut Ice Cream Bites Happy 4th of July weekend, sweet friend! Hope it’s a fun-filled weekend with lots of sunshine, relaxing, great food, good company and sweet treats. And speaking of sweet treats, I have the perfect one for you to enjoy with no guilt whatsoever! I know holidays can create some anxiety around staying healthy, but make healthy choices when you can and also treat yourself too (if you want)! Restricting ourselves is never fun, can create stress and can actually cause us to think about whatever food we are trying to restrict way too much.

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.

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

Healthy Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Um, yes please! This stuff is amazing. Homemade banana ice cream is one of my favorite super easy healthy treats to make.  We’re talking 5-ingredient easy for this recipe.  It’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, & refined sugar-free…clearly a very clean and healthy treat for you. The two main ingredients are bananas and cacao powder. As I’m sure you already know, bananas are great for you. They aid in weight loss, are great to eat before a workout, can help improve mood and overcome depression, aid digestion, assist in absorbing nutrients, build strong bones, can make you more alert, and the list goes on. Raw cacao powder is a staple in my kitchen at all times. It’s high in antioxidants, high in minerals like magnesium, zinc, iron & chromium, is great for your beautiful little heart, and…it’s raw chocolate…enough said. keep reading
