Apple Pie Ice Cream

I know we are getting close to the beginning of fall, but ice cream is always a good idea. :)  This Apple Pie Ice Cream is so awesome!  It seriously tastes like an apple pie ala mode.  The best thing about this apple pie ice cream?  It’s made healthier!  I was licking the spoon as it was churning in the ice cream maker.

Apple Pie Ice Cream

This might just be my most favorite ice cream recipe ever.  I used my crock pot applesauce for this recipe.  I highly recommend doing the same.  Slow cooking the apples in all the spices brings out the natural sugars and creates a great flavor profile for this recipe.  I think that is what brought this over the top for me.  I am going to have a hard time sharing this one with hubby and the kids. :)

I have a new slow cooker recipe for you!  This time it’s slow cooker ratatouille soup.  One can never have too many soup recipes right?  Especially when they are healthy soup recipes.  Even better if they are slow cooker recipes.  This slow cooker ratatouille soup will not disappoint.  It’s loaded with flavor.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Ratatouille Soup - My Whole Food Life

If you wanted to add more protein to this soup, I could see white beans or kidney beans going real well in here.  This soup is great on it’s own though.  Plus the house will smell amazing!  Unlike most soup recipes, this one contains no broth.  Most of the vegetables release so much water in the cooking process, that there was no need for broth.  This recipes makes a very large amount of soup.  It’s quite budget friendly.  I store mine in serving sized containers in the freezer for easy meals on those busy days.

Pumpkin Truffles

Are you sick of pumpkin yet?  I am so obsessed with pumpkin recipes these days.  These pumpkin truffles are delicious and they would be perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert.  I had to stop myself from eating more than one.  These pumpkin truffles may be my most favorite pumpkin dessert recipe yet!  You can’t really go wrong with pumpkin and chocolate!

Pumpkin Truffles - My Whole Food Life

These pumpkin truffles are a little bite of heaven.  You only need 7 ingredients to make them!  They are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  Imagine a pumpkin cream covered in chocolate.  Perfection!  I used chocolate chips in my recipe, but this would also work with my 3 ingredient chocolate recipe.  If you choose to use that, don’t add the milk.  Just make the chocolate sauce as is.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
