Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles

I am always looking for ways to use up ripe bananas.  My daughter, Meadow, and I made these Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles together.   She loves helping me, and this recipe was a very easy one for her to help with.  You can see her in the picture below. If you like homemade popsicles, you may also like my blueberries and cream popsicles or my strawberry popsicles.


These popsicles can easily be made nut free by using sunflower butter instead of peanut butter.  I added some chocolate chips to mine, but that is a totally optional ingredient.  You can just do the peanut butter and banana if you prefer. If you love my 5 minute banana ice cream, you will love these!

Apple Pie Ice Cream (Vegan, Paleo)

I know we are getting close to the beginning of fall, but ice cream is always a good idea. 🙂  This Apple Pie Ice Cream is so awesome!

It seriously tastes like an apple pie ala mode.  The best thing about this apple pie ice cream?  It’s made healthier!  I was licking the spoon as it was churning in the ice cream maker.


Apple Pie Ice Cream


This might just be my most favorite ice cream recipe ever.  I used my crock pot applesauce for this recipe.  I highly recommend doing the same.

Slow cooking the apples in all the spices brings out the natural sugars and creates a great flavor profile for this recipe.  I think that is what brought this over the top for me.

I am going to have a hard time sharing this one with hubby and the kids. 🙂

Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

The warm weather is here and I am cranking out new ice cream recipes.  This cherry chocolate chip ice cream recipe is my latest one.  I just love cherries.  So when my husband brought a bunch home the other day, I knew I wanted to make cherry ice cream.  Of course I had to make mine cherry chocolate chip ice cream, because chocolate always makes everything better!  Am I right?  I love having an ice cream maker.  It is so worth the money when you think about the price of organic, dairy free and gluten free store bought ice cream.  You can make your own ice cream recipes for so much cheaper with just a handful of ingredients.

It only takes 4 simple ingredients to make it.  I love 4 ingredient recipes.  I really think you could omit the sweetener all together in this if you happen to have some really sweet cherries.  You will need to pit the cherries, which can be a messy job unless you have a cherry pit remover.
