Dairy Free, Sugar Free Avocado Popsicles

The versatility of avocados have always amazed me. They can be used in savory and sweet dishes (yes, as icing! Crazy, right?). I had six ripe avocados this weekend, so naturally I used them for guacamole…and popsicles. One day I will get an ice cream maker and turn them into ice cream. But, until then, popsicles will do. Avocados are naturally super creamy, so you know you’re in for a treat!
Recipe (makes 4 popsicles)

Ingredients: 

2 ripe avocados
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tablespoon honey (or any sweetener of your choice)
1/4 cup lemon juice
Cut up any fruit you’d like to add in. I opted for blueberries and strawberries.
Popsicle mold (you can find these at the dollar store or walmart)

Directions: 

  1. Blend all the ingredients together, except for the extra fruit.
  2. Put cut up fruit into the popsicle mold.
  3. Put blended up avocado mix into the mold. Shake and tap to make sure it fills the entire mold.
  4. Put into freezer until solid.
  5. Run under warm water when ready to serve.

 

Dairy-free, Grain-free Vanilla Cupcakes 

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe I successfully made grain-free cupcakes and have them actually taste like cupcakes. To me, that just seems weird. But, awesome. But, weird. What’s even crazier is that it’s refined sugar-free (minus the sprinkles), dairy-free, and gluten-free! I couldn’t believe that there are so many types of flour out there that can be substituted for regular flour. I opted for coconut flour for its extra fiber and tastiness! If you make these, let me know how they turn out!
