Salted Caramel Cashew Ice Cream

Calling all ice cream fans!  This Salted Caramel Cashew Ice Cream is a must make.  I think it is my new favorite.  Before making this recipe, my favorite was the cherry chocolate chip ice cream.  The best part about this ice cream is that is has zero added sugar.

That’s right.  You heard me correct.  This healthier ice cream recipe is sweetened only with dates!  The dates make up the caramel portion of this recipe.

Lemon Coconut Cookies

Nothing says summer better than the flavors of lemon and coconut.  Those flavors are showcased in these Lemon Coconut Cookies.  These Lemon Coconut Cookies are a super cinch to make. They also happen to be gluten free, grain free, nut free, and vegan!

These cookies also come with a boost of fiber and protein.  They freeze well too, so you can make a batch for later.  Maybe in the winter when you are craving the flavors of summer? 🙂

Pinto Beans and Rice

I love okra, but sadly I am alone in my love of this vegetable. I included okra in this Pinto Beans and Rice dish to feed my craving. Not only is this simple to make, it comes with a bit of heat, which I also love. And while I know I don’t post much, choosing to mainly work behind the scenes of MyWholeFoodLife, I do plan on posting more of my creations in the future. Melissa and I are a great team, and we want to show everyone just how much we collaborate. Some of my other recipes are Eggplant Pasta, Mexican Quinoa and Squash Apple Soup.  Enough about me, onto to the dish.

This recipe is great for lunch. If you don’t like heat, green bell peppers would sub well. On the flip side, use jalapeños if you are looking for something a bit more spicy. This is a pretty versatile dish that I hope you love as much as I did.
