Another great thing about this ice cream recipe is that you don’t need an ice cream maker to make it! Anyone can make it as long as you have a blender or food processor.  Easy peasy.

If you wanted to make this recipe nut free, you can use sunflower butter instead of cashew butter.  You may have to add a little milk to get the mixture super creamy.

Pumpkin Chocolate Bars (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Pumpkin Chocolate Bars that are vegan, paleo and gluten free.  My favorite time of year is here!  Do you love fall too?   Pumpkin on all the things!

I am starting with these delectable pumpkin bars.  These healthy bars were inspired by this amazing recipe on Pinch of Yum.

As soon as I saw her recipe, I thought about making a pumpkin version.  It came out great!

These dessert bars are very rich and you only need a little bit to feel satisfied. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Chocolate Chip Quinoa Blondies

These Chocolate Chip Quinoa Blondies may be the best dessert I have made in a while.  I already have several Quinoa Brownies and also Quinoa Cookies on the blog.

I just never occurred to me to create a quinoa blondie recipe until now. I am so glad I did.  This opens the door up to different varieties in the future too!

Pumpkin Chai Smoothie

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by REBBL, but all opinions are my own.  Thanks for supporting the brands I love.

I know it’s kinda early for pumpkin, but to be honest, we eat it all year long.  The minute I tried this REBBL Ashwagandha Chai Coconut Milk Elixir, I knew it would be delicious with pumpkin.  I was right.  The warm spices from the Chai, pair perfectly with the pumpkin!

I had the pleasure of trying all the vegan flavors and they are delicious.  Perfect for take on the go, just like you would a coffee drink, but without the caffeine.  I really love the Maca Cold-Brew as an alternative to coffee drinks.  The maca root gives you sustained, non-jittery energy, and the taste is great too!

REBBL stands for Root, Extracts, Berries, Bark and Leaves.  REBBL offers many different coconut milk elixirs: Matcha Latte, Turmeric Golden Milk, Maca Cold Brew, Maca Mocha, Reishi Chocolate and Ashwagandha Chai.  They also offer 2 protein drinks: Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Spice.

Coconut Pecan Cookies

New cookie recipe for you today.  Originally, I set out to make cowboy cookies.  Then after I had them in the oven, I realized I forgot to add the chocolate chips and oats.  Oops!  Even without those 2 things, these coconut pecan cookies still came out very yummy.  They almost reminded me of the flavors in pecan sandies.  In any case, these flourless cookies were delicious.
