Coconut Chai Ice Cream

I love homemade ice cream.  There are so many possibilities.  Today I made some Coconut Chai Ice Cream.  I love that I can control the ingredients.  When you invest in an ice cream maker, it quickly pays for itself if you eat ice cream often. Healthy, dairy free and organic ice cream is so expensive!  This ice cream is easy to make with simple ingredients.  If you like homemade ice cream, you may also like my Pecan Caramel Ice Cream or my Apple Pie Ice Cream.

Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes

If you try anything, you must try these Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes.  I was on Facebook the other day and I came upon this recipe.  I really liked the idea of using avocado in desserts.  I have had success using it in my flourless brownie bites and my chocolate chip avocado cookies.  So I thought I would attempt cupcakes.  The orginal recipe had way to much sugar and it was also not gluten free.  I came up with a version that has less sugar, is oil free and is gluten free.  It’s also vegan of course!
