Easy Strawberry Banana Ice Cream (Dairy Free & Sugar Free)

 

Last week I tried the strawberry ice cream recipe from The Spunky Coconut’s new book Dairy Free Ice Cream.. and it was amazing! It inspired me to start using my ice cream maker more and to come up with even easier and quicker recipes to use in it. I use the Cuisinart ice cream maker and it works great!  I love this recipe because it is dairy free, sugar free, egg free, and has only 3 ingredients! I use almond milk in it but you can use coconut milk to make it AIP friendly.

Apple Coconut Bars (Nut free, Paleo, Vegan, Raw)

I’ve decided to go on the AIP diet for a month because lately I’ve noticed I don’t feel great after eating eggs or nut butters. AIP is a more strict version of the paleo diet that’s specifically for autoimmune disease. It is a lot like the GAPS and it is meant to heal the gut and digestive issues. On AIP you can’t eat nuts, eggs, dairy (except ghee), refined sugar, grains, legumes, and nightshade veggies. I am on day four and already feeling better! I’m in love with these delicious no bake apple coconut bars. They  are an easy and filling snack to grab when I need something fast. Plus they only have 5 ingredients!  Fats are important on this diet, and these bars have a lot of healthy coconut oil in them!

  This recipe isn’t dairy free, but it is grain free/low carb, and it only has 3 ingredients! It also comes together in less than 15 minutes. I used green zucchini, but you could use yellow zucchini and it would probably look closer to real noodles. I used one of my favorite kitchen gadgets- my [...]

Roasted Cauliflower & Kale Salad w/ Maple Dressing

This has my new favorite salad lately. I love the roasted cauliflower! Anything roasted is amazing because it gives it that slightly charred flavor. The best part of this recipe is this dressing. Oh my, it’s good! It would taste great with any salad. I love kale because it doesn’t get soggy like other lettuces, [...]

Dark Chocolate Coconut Butter

This stuff is my newest addiction! A few weeks ago I ordered Nikki’s coconut butter on Amazon and have been hooked ever since. But $14 for a 12 oz jar is pretty expensive. So thankfully, I found a much cheaper way to make it myself, for around $3 a 12 ounce jar. And with a [...]
