This lemon blueberry ice cream is vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  Super easy.  You can make it up in about 20 minutes.  I love having an ice cream maker. If you haven’t noticed.  It’s much cheaper to make your own when organic ice cream at the store goes for about $6 a small carton.  Plus you don’t get any weird additives like carrageenan.

Chocolate Ice Cream

Yesterday, I asked my daughter what she wanted to help me make.  She requested chocolate ice cream.  She is a huge chocolate fan, so of course we had to make it double chocolate ice cream!  Homemade ice cream is so much better than store bought.  You can control the ingredients.

I hope you enjoy it.  You can make this in about 20 minutes!  If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can always pour this into popsicle molds

Quinoa Cookies

I am always thinking of what I can add to my cookie recipes to make them healthy enough for breakfast.  That is where these quinoa cookies come in.  Who wouldn’t want cookies for breakfast?  Since these quinoa cookies are packed with protein and fiber, they should keep you full for quite some time.  Quinoa is a plant based source of complete protein.

I added chocolate chips to my cookies, but you can also use dried fruits if you like.  I think chopped dates or raisins would be great in here as well.  If you wanted to bump up the protein a little more, you could add some hemp hearts or chia seeds.  These quinoa cookies are vegan and gluten free.  I hope you enjoy them.
