Homemade Raw Vegan Ice Cream Bars!

Homemade Raw Vegan Ice Cream Bars!
Yes, another ice cream recipe! Funny that I am posting this today, because I started a juice fast this morning! I feel like I really need it because (believe it or not) I have been eating a lot of heavy vegan food lately…Good thing that ice cream does not go bad, coz these little guys will have to wait for me a while in my freezer Anyway, back to the ice cream! I got these cool molds to make ice cream bars at home and I wanted to make a raw vegan version of the classic ice cream I used to eat as a child. My favorite was the white chocolate covered chocolate ice cream! For the chocolate ice cream I used my basic chocolate avocado pudding as a base. Chocolate Pudding Ice cream Base -4 ripe avocados/ 4 ώριμα αβοκάντο -1 cup raw cacao powder/ 1 κούπα ωμή σκόνη κακάο -1 cup agave nectar/ 1 κούπα σιρόπι αγαύης -1/2 cup water/ 1/2 κούπα νερό Blend everything in a high-speed blender until completely smooth and transfer in ice cream molds. This recipe makes about 10 small ice cream bars. Enjoy!

These pies are causing quite a stir in households and offices across the land Yields 10 – 12 pies Food That’s Good (And Vegan) Every week we hit the raw bar, grill up some veggies, pre pack our lunches and spurn anything that comes from anything that once had a face. But then we get busy—buried under a pile of papers busy—and we forget to pack lunch, don’t have time to go out, and get a headache the size of Suffolk County. At that precise moment, when stress, hunger and pain blend into chaos and/or head banging, someone inevitably yells “who wants in on this souvlaki order!?!”

Raw Strawberry Cheesecake May 5, 2009 Raw Strawberry Cheesecake by IsaChandra I always say that I’m not a raw person but that isn’t exactly true. When I’m in SF I’m practically tethered to Cafe Gratitude and one of the best meals I had in LA was at Cru. Brooklyn used to have a hole in the wall (almost literally) restaurant where I would enjoy soggy dehydrated pancakes. Recipe: quinoa, black bean & sweet potato croquettes with pumpkin seed chipotle cream - Dreena Burton - Vegan Soccer Mom Black Bean, Sweet Potato and Quinoa Croquettes with Pumpkin Seed Chipotle Cream I recently asked my blog followers which of my recipes they’d like posted. I’ve been working my way through new recipes for my fourth cookbook. A few months ago, I posted a photo for these Black Bean, Sweet Potato and Quinoa Croquettes with Pumpkin Seed Chipotle Cream.

Deodorant Recipe Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. Please subscribe and you'll get great simple living tips and how-to articles delivered to your inbox, for free! In the DIY world of home health and beauty products, deodorant seems to be the the most feared replacement. Stinking is NOT OKAY in our culture, right? But aluminum crammed in your pores cannot be good for you, and it seems in recent years that store-bought deodorant is becoming less and less effective anyway. This deodorant uses a natural moisture absorber (cornstarch), a natural deodorizer (baking soda), and a natural anti-bacteria/fungal oil (tea tree oil) to keep any stink from developing in the first place.

Homemade Horchata Now that the weather is warming up on our side of the country (hooray!), I wanted to share one of my favorite homemade beverage recipes with you - Horchata! This is probably one of the easiest drinks to prepare at home, and I actually prefer to make it myself because I like my drinks less sweet than most people. That said, feel free to adjust the amount of sugar or honey you use according to your taste. I also occasionally add nuts or different spices to change the flavor a little, but this is my basic go-to recipe.

Finally, Really Good Sandwich Bread: Our Favorite Gluten Free Bread Recipe Gluten free bread is a staple of our diet. When John first started a gluten free diet we searched through grocery store after grocery store hunting the elusive frozen rice bread that our internet searches indicated should be there. We finally found some and, upon trying it, promptly spit it out. It was horrible! John kept eating it though, because what else is one to do when you don’t know how to cook and your girlfriend is away at grad school. By the time we married the following year, we had a bread machine and Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Bread Mix. Mocha Brownie Blizzard Ingredients 1/2 cup pecans 1/2 cup cashews 1/2 cup dates, pitted pinch of salt 2 tsp vanilla extract

Chicken Noodle Soup with Homemade Egg Noodles My kids actually call this soup "Kung Fu Panda Soup" or "Noodle Soup"...but, hey, we'll call it anything they want, if they eat it! :) This soup is easy, and can be made simpler by using cooked leftover chicken or turkey, chicken broth, and dried gf noodles. I adapted my recipe from here and the noodle recipe from here. Okay, so why in the world am I making noodles? I wanted to experiment, and they turned out pretty good. But another main reason, I wanted to use up some egg yolks.

Lemon Smoothie Piggies! You are in for a scrumptious treat today. I hit the yummy JACKPOT with this smoothie blend. This raw vegan lemon smoothie tastes just like a melted cheesecake in a glass! You will never guess this is dairy free. It is smooth, creamy, rich, and decadent. Pea & Avocado Penne Loading ... This simple penne pasta recipe came about with a desire to create vegan creamy pesto style pasta. I love pea mash, the colour and sweet flavour and avocado seemed an ideal ingredient to produce the right texture. Throw in some more green with baby spinach and green beans and you have a colourful, healthy and really tasty vegan pasta recipe. I included the pine nuts because they are a favourite of ours and give the dish an authentic pesto taste; for a non vegan version crumble through some feta cheese before serving.
