Vegan Ice Cream

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

I am surprising myself by posting an ice cream in January considering I am ALWAYS cold. But I’m going through a coconut phase right now, and after creating and devouring this ice cream, there was no way I was waiting for warm weather to post it. It’s really quite magically, because it doesn’t taste like coconut or bananas! The flavors are subtle, but it is perfectly creamy, and the ultimate canvas for fruit, chocolate sauce, […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Cinnamon Shortbread

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

During the week of Christmas, I make a habit of consuming an alarming quantity of shortbread. It’s an addiction. Which is why I only make it once (okay, maybe twice) a year. The recipe is super simple, and totally satisfies my yearning for shortbread without the dairy or gluten.

Although I had my share of […]

Grain-Free Pumpkin Pie Cookies

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

This recipe is a refinement of the pumpkin pie cookies that I posted around this time last year. I was determined to make them healthier and just as tasty, and I am proud to say I succeeded. I am transitioning for using agave to other sweeteners when possible, and I am also focusing on replacing refined flours and grains with nuts because the healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals in nuts in incomparable. I highly […]

Raw Chocolate Bars

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

Why, I ask, have I waited so long to attempt to make a raw chocolate bar? I don’t know. But I am sure glad that I gave it a shot. Quick, easy, only 3 ingredients, and guilt-free. I’m all smiles over this one. Chocolate in its purest form, cacao is said to be one of the top superfoods, if not the number 1. So go ahead, eat the whole batch. It will more than satisfy […]
