Coconut Mango Popsicles

  Who doesn’t love Popsicles on a hot day? These are my 3 year old’s favorite treat right now. I started making these when I was working with kids at a summer camp. Then I got a Norpro Ice Pop Maker and now I make a batch at home every week. Sometimes I make my […]

Raw Energy & Antioxidant Trail Mix

Angie’s Raw Energy & Antioxidant Trail Mix   In honor of America’s favorite junk-food holiday, Super Bowl Sunday, I thought I would write about a healthy snack alternative.  I watched the game today, and even though I was disappointed that my Green Bay Packers didn’t even come close to being in the game, I am happy for New Orleans […]

Mayo-less Deviled Eggs With Capers

  At last I am finally getting around to posting my deviled egg recipe, in time for the holidays I hope.  Deviled eggs used to be one of my favorite treats, especially at holiday time.  But I stopped eating them because I try to avoid mayo, mostly because it is one of those processed condiments […]

Easy Homemade Cashew Nut Butter

Sliced Apples With Cashew Butter   Do you ever get tired of stirring up those jars of cashew butter?  You know, when they sit on the store shelves and the oil separates from the nuts and you have to use a big spoon or knife and a whole bunch of paper towels to soak up the splattering as […]

Stove-Top Kettle Popcorn

  I’ve been spending a lot of time watching movies lately while waiting for my hand to heal after my bike accident.  One of my favorite things to do while watching a movie is sit down with a bowl of freshly stove-popped organic, non-GMO popcorn – complete with unrefined mineral sea salt and melted cultured […]

Dairy-Free Coconut Cacao Ice Cream

  I seriously cannot rave enough about my new ice cream maker. It has literally changed my life!  Ciao Bella coconut sorbet used to be a rare treat (at $5+ a pint), but now I can enjoy my own homemade dairy-free coconut ice cream anytime for the cost of a can of coconut milk.  How awesome […]

Fresh Berry Tart In Raw Pecan-Apricot Crust

  This is the time of year when fresh berries of all sorts are in season and you can get lots of good deals.  Wondering what to do with all of those berries?  Here’s an easy dessert that doesn’t require any cooking (perfect on a hot day) and uses fresh, raw ingredients that are naturally […]

Orange-Mango Sorbet

  This week I got a new toy – a brand new Cuisinart ice cream & sorbet maker!  I’ve been seeing all these recipes on other people’s blogs for various sorbets and dairy-free ice creams made from coconut milk or nut milk and I can’t wait to try them all.  Today my first attempt was […]

Raw Coconut-Orange-Cacao Bars

Raw Coconut-Orange-Cacao Bars Did I mention I was on a raw food kick lately?  I feel great – I’ve been juicing vegetables every day for the past couple of weeks and incorporating some sort of raw dish with every meal, including salads, raw nuts and seeds, fruits, fresh coconut smoothies, and delicious sauces made with […]

Gluten-Free Coconut Chai Cake

  While searching for something to bake when I had the munchies one afternoon, I stumbled upon Susan V’s Fat-Free Vegan Blog and a lovely recipe for Coconut Chai Breakfast Cake.  The recipe called for whole wheat flour and oatmeal, so I thought ok, I’ll just use brown rice flour and quinoa flakes.  I went to my pantry […]
