Homemade Ding Dongs

3 words for you.  Homemade Ding Dongs. The other day in my Facebook group, a member posted a pic of some store bought Ding Dongs from Whole Foods.  She asked if I could make a homemade version and I gladly accepted the challenge!  I love the challenge of making copycat recipes. Just try my Gluten Free Samoas or my Grain Free Twix Bars for yourself.  Unlike the store bought one, my version is free of refined sugar, gluten, eggs and dairy!

I got a little over-zealous and took the photograph before I added the chocolate coating.  I will definitely make sure to add those instructions in the recipe though.  I hope you enjoy these Homemade Ding Dongs as much as we did! The recipe is a little involved, but totally worth it.

Raspberry Coconut Mousse

Just because you are vegan, does not mean you need to give up desserts like mousse.  This Raspberry Coconut Mousse is sure to please.  It can be made in a matter of minutes, and it’s rich in texture and taste.  If you haven’t guess by now, I just love the combo of raspberry and coconut.  If you love this combo as well, you may want to check out my Raspberry Coconut Muffins or my Raspberry Coconut Smoothie.  If you don’t want to use raspberries, you can always replace them with strawberries or any other fruit.

Raspberry Coconut Mousse

This heavenly raspberry coconut mousse is vegan, gluten free and paleo.   It only calls for a few simple ingredients.  Chocolate chips may be a nice addition as well. I used fresh raspberries, but I am guessing you can use use frozen as well.  Just let them thaw and drain before you use them in this recipe.
