Dairy-Free Healthy Blizzard

Ice Cream Friday: Sunbutter Cup Blizzards

Have you ever made peanut (or almond) butter cups at home? It’s a simple treat, but a time-consuming one: Melt chocolate. Swirl in mini muffin liners. Chill. Melt nut butter and sugar. Spoon into liners. Chill. Melt chocolate again. Pour over the top of the nut butter. Chill for the last time. Then I saw […]

Ice Cream Friday: Around the Web

Soooo this Friday’s dairy-free ice cream attempt was a big fat flop. The theme of the week was ‘breakfast ice cream’, where I hopped on the banana ice cream train and tossed in a few superfoods like hemp and cacao for a healthy morning treat. It basically came out like this smoothie. Don’t get me […]

Sea Salt and Honey Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Sea Salt and Honey

Every week I say to myself, “This Ice Cream Friday I should make a sorbet.” And then I never do. Part of the reason is I’m not a fan of fruity desserts and will always choose the gooey, chocolatey, caramel-ish options over crumbles, sorbets or fruit-stuffed pies. But mainly the reason is when summertime fruits […]

Shortly before the water restrictions began, we watched a wonderful movie called Young Ones – check it out if you get the chance – about a futuristic time […]

How to Throw a Kick-Ass Healthy BBQ

The barbecues of my childhood were laden with charred meat in squishy pale buns, gloppy potato salad, chips, dips prepared from onion soup mix, and creamy coleslaw – a vista of browns, whites and greys. I’ve since learned a BBQ doesn’t have to be synonymous with unhealthy fare followed by an uncomfortable stomachache. If you’re […]

With the cold hand of winter far behind us, our bodies are ready to move, play and explore again. Many of us might be taking time off and heading to faraway places for new experiences, but having to deal with a finicky stomach and multiple trips to the bathroom is the furthest thing from excitement […]

Dairy-Free Chocolate Probiotic Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Fermented Chocolate Ice Cream

I deliberated whether I should call this recipe ‘Fermented Chocolate Ice Cream’ or ‘Chocolate Probiotic Ice Cream’. I feared the fermented title might conjure images of sour, stinky food – not exactly how I want you to perceive my ice cream. However, with all of the healthwashing that surrounds food with added probiotics, I didn’t […]

Do you like the taste of alcohol? I never have, really. I enjoyed sweet drinks that didn’t taste like booze, but that was more about the sugar rush than the alcohol. That’s why today, in my latest column for Food Bloggers of Canada, I’m sharing my best tips to help you create healthy, allergen-friendly summer […]
