Seven Reasons to Give up Milk

Vegan Monkfruit Frosting

This dairy free frosting is super easy to make and taste great! I’ve tried dozens of different dairy free frosting recipes out there, but wasn’t really excited until I came across this one.

Paleo Cereal

This is my favorite paleo cereal recipe! It’s loaded in raw nutrition and fiber, which makes it great for the digestive system. You can be creative and add your own spin on this. In the beginning I felt the need to add in maple syrup for a touch a sweetness, but now I don’t feel that need at all. I find that adding in fruit or raisins is all the sweetness I need. But if you feel that this recipe…

Blueberry Nice Cream- Vegan & Paleo

If you’re a fan of blueberries, then you’re going to love this “nice cream.” It’s so creamy and delicious! My recipe was inspired from Wife Mama Foodie’s website.

“Pumpkin Pie” Ice Cream

This recipe was inspired from One Green Planet. I don’t have an ice-cream maker and I also wanted to make a version that I could do with my Paleo diet.

This is a guilt free treat to enjoy! Check it out and let me know what you think. Ingredients: 1…
