Blueberry Lavender Dairy-free Ice Cream

Blueberry Lavender Dairy-Free Ice Cream

During the summer we vacationed on Salt Spring Island, a small heavenly oasis in British Columbia’s Southern Gulf Islands. There isn’t a single traffic light on the island and the roads are dotted with farm stands where you pay for produce based on the honour system. While we’ve visited twice before, we’ve never been during the […]

Mixed Berry Coconut Ice Cream

Mixed Berry Coconut Ice Cream

Way back in January, when I decided to eliminate sugar for a month, I bought a 2-kilogram bag of mixed berries. I thought, ‘Berries are naturally sweet. I’ll have more smoothies!’ You know what dampens the desire for smoothies? Freezing temperatures, snow and ice, and then rain until the end of May. And so, those berries […]

Coffee Caramel Crunch Dairy-Free Ice Cream - a great treat for a hot day!

Coffee Caramel Crunch Dairy-Free Ice Cream

Have you ever made a recipe simply because you like the way it sounds? Coffee Caramel Crunch. Birthed into being because I like the alliteration. But maybe you aren’t that superficial (you probably don’t judge a book by its cover, either). You gaze beyond a recipe title to assess the ingredients, the instructions, the do-ability. Once you […]

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 […]

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 […]

Vegan Carob Sunflower Seed Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Dairy-Free Carob Sunflower

This dairy-free ice cream recipe is for the carob lovers, or the carob-curious. ‘Cause if you think carob is an inferior imitation of chocolate, you’ll be mightily disappointed (and I won’t be offended if you use cacao powder instead of carob). And all you carob fans: Can I get a ‘whoop whoop’? Maybe an arm […]

Dairy-Free Raw Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Raw Fudge Brownie Chunk Ice Cream

This recipe makes a LOT of ice cream. You’re probably fine with that. I am too. I pleaded with Tim to help me eat this dairy-free ice cream, as while everything in the recipe is healthy it’s not so healthy when you eat an entire batch on your own. He had one bowl, declared it […]

Salted Caramel Pecan Swirl Ice Cream

Do you dig the sweet ‘n salty treats? I used to think these were opposing flavours that could never be best friends. Flakes of sea salt on my chocolate? Nah, I’d rather just flick ’em off. As many of you already know, adding a bit of salt enhances sweetness, especially in baked goods. Given that […]

Quick and Easy Chocolate Sauce

Many of us believe it’s faster, easier and tastier to buy food in packages or bottles. I think you’ll feel differently after you sample this drippy, chocolatey goodness. It takes all of 60 seconds to come together and tastes incredible. You can drizzle this over crepes, fruit, brownies or any other dessert, but I absolutely […]

Avocado Chocolate Chip Creamsicles

I hemmed and hawed over buying these popsicle molds. I asked myself if I’d really use them in the long term, or if they’d merely collect dust in a cupboard after the novelty wore off? Only time will tell, but now that summer is here I can say with certainty that I’ll be making these […]
