How to Make Coconut Ice Cream | Homemade coconut ice cream recipe | Paleo coconut ice cream | Dairy-free coconut ice cream

Coconut ice cream makes an excellent real food dessert. It’s bursting with healthy coconut oil, it’s allergy-friendly, and it can easily accommodate whatever substitutions you might want to make. Plus it’s a really fast dessert to make, which is a huge bonus when you’re already spending a lot of time making all of your meals from scratch.

I don’t remember when I first started making coconut ice cream, but I know that I’ve made hundreds of batches. Coconut ice cream is kind of my specialty.…

Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Fudge

Peanut butter coconut oil fudge recipe | Healthy fudge | Dairy-free fudge | Peanut butter chocolate fudge

Have you tried my fantastic coconut oil fudge yet? After I’d made that recipe many times, I decided to switch it up a bit and add some peanut butter. (Because peanut butter and chocolate is, of course, one of the best flavor combinations.) This peanut butter coconut oil fudge is a delicious twist on the original: all the chocolately goodness plus rich, nutty peanut butter flavor.

Like my other coconut oil fudge recipe, I love this recipe because it’s really simple to make and is a tasty way to add more healthy coconut oil to your diet. It also keeps really well in the freezer, so I usually make a double batch and then we get to enjoy it for quite a while.…

Things I Loved in July

Things I Loved in JulyHello there! I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far.

Things have been so so here. My health issues continue unabated. But we don’t need to talk about that now; there was quite enough of that last month. If you take them OUT of the equation, though, things are pretty good. 🙂

This is a great time of year for FOOD! My garden is booming. We live in a duplex right now and have a pretty small backyard, most of which is devoted to our garden.

Right now I’m growing tomatoes, summer squash/zucchini, yellow pole beans, cucumbers, and herbs: basil, mint, rosemary, oregano, sage, thyme and marjoram.…

The other day I felt like making ice cream. Since my chocolate cashew ice cream had been such a success, I figured I’d try making another batch of cashew ice cream. I started out trying to make vanilla, but that was just tasting sort of meh, so I threw in some cinnamon.

Oh man–that was definitely the right decision. This cinnamon cashew ice cream is so good! I know I say that about all of my ice cream recipes, but it’s still just as true. 🙂 (What can I say–we like ice cream! And I don’t post it here unless it’s really good.) I think my cinnamon coconut ice cream is amazing, too, but if you like cinnamon you definitely need to also give this one a try.…

How to Make Cashew Butter

Homemade cashew butter recipe | DIY cashew butter | How to make cashew butter | Paleo cashew butter

Have you tried cashew butter? If you can’t or don’t eat peanut butter, cashew butter is a delicious replacement. It’s creamy and deliciously flavorful. I mostly use it to make these cashew butter chocolate chip cookies, but I also like it on apples or just straight off the spoon.

Making your own homemade cashew butter is really easy. It also much less expensive than buying pre-made cashew butter.

I make my homemade cashew butter with organic roasted cashews that I buy at Costco or Trader Joe’s. You can also make raw cashew butter, but I like the flavor of the roasted cashews so I haven’t tried that yet.…
