Nanking Cherry Smoothie

You know those sweet, almost purple Bing cherries…in my world, they are the best summer snack. I rarely make recipes with them because I love the simplicity of eating them just as they are.

However, it’s a different story with the cherries in our backyard. We had a bountiful supply of Nanking cherries this year and we weren’t sure what Continue reading »

Jul

You guys know that I have my lemon water ever day. If it’s not drank in plain old warm water, it’s in my green tea. If I’m too hot, I’ll drink it over ice, or put my lemon into my Lemon Meringue Smoothie.

However, lately I’ve gotten back in touch with a drink I used to make a couple summers ago. How have I Continue reading »

Matcha Monsoon Smoothie (my way)

Peppermint Cacao Matcha Protein Smoothie

Years ago I used to frequent Booster Juice all the time. It was my favourite place in the world. Now, as I’ve learned more about nutrition and blood sugar/pH, I save most smoothie shops for “treat day”. In the average store-bought smoothie there is a ridiculously high amount of Continue reading »

Low Carb Macaroni and Cheese

Low Carb Mac and Cheese recipe made with cauliflower

I’ve been challenging myself to upping my healthy eating, and decreasing my sugar (or my cheats) drastically. Sunday is usually the day where I allow myself more wiggle room, but for a season I’ve decided to tighten my game a little…and for me that’s sticking to the low carb, no sugar lifestyle Continue reading »

How to make low carb vanilla ice cream

So yes, this may be the third ice-cream recipe I’ve posted in a short time period. I don’t think you’re allowed to judge, but if you want to…that’s okay too. Basically I just really like ice-cream.

You can't buy happiness but you can buy ice cream

This one has a little more fat content, but is a scrumptious, creamy classic. A skeleton for your wildest ice-cream dreams!

 Low Carb Vanilla Ice-Cream

  1.  1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  2. 1/2 cup half and half
  3. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  4. 1/8 classic stevia syrup
  5. 1-2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  6. Pinch of pure sea salt

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Add to ice-cream maker according to manufacturers instructions.

 *You can use any stevia based sweetener, just add according to taste. I used this NuNaturals simple syrup and I love it.
