You can literally whip this up in minutes! My husband loves it super spicy, so he kept the seeds in the jalapenos.  If you like things with a little less heat, I suggest removing the seeds.  It’s your choice.

Coconut Mojito Energy Bites (Vegan and Paleo)

Coconut Mojito Energy Bites.  I just LOVE mojitos in the summer.  I make them often and I always seem to have mint and limes in the house.   So I thought I would bring those flavors into an energy bite recipe for you.

I thought coconut would go really well with the flavors of mint and lime, so I added that in as well.  I hope you enjoy them!!

If you need to make these nut free, you can use sunflower butter and another flour in place of the cashew butter and almond flour.   Most flour substitutes should work.  The only one I would not try to use is coconut flour.  It can be a very tricky thing to sub in recipes.

Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream

It’s perfect weather for ice cream here in Dallas.  So I am busy making new flavors like this Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream.  Or rather, “nice cream.”  I call it nice cream because it’s made with frozen bananas.  That makes it very healthy too!

Now, don’t get scared off by the phrase, healthy ice cream. I promise it’s really delicious!  My 6 year old actually begs for this almost every afternoon in the summer. The best part about this?  You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this! Yay!

I didn’t blend mine super well because I liked the bananas kind of chunky, but you are more than welcome to blend until smooth.  You can also make this with sunflower butter instead of almond butter for a nut free option.

When I go to the store, I always buy two bunches of bananas so I can put one bunch in the freezer.  That way I always have bananas on hand to make this.

If you want to add even more nutrition, you can also add chia, flax or seeds to these. If you choose to do that, you may need to adjust the liquids as well.

I used roasted and unsalted cashew butter when making these.  If you use unsalted, I suggest adding a little salt to the recipe.  Maybe a pinch?
