Coconut Milk Yogurt & Ice Cream

The day has finally arrived … I can eat YOGURT again.

Curried Spinach & Avocado Hummus

We’re having company over tonight so I decided to whip up a new dip to serve with blue corn tortilla chips as a snack. I love hummus and guacamole so instead of deciding between the two I attempted to make a dip which combines the two flavours and it was a success!

These soft and chewy flour-less peanut butter cookies satisfied my craving this morning. All I could think about was peanut butter when I woke up, so I decided to whip up a batch. This basic recipe that has been around since before my time is naturally gluten-free!

Being sensitive to the effects that white sugar has on my blood sugar levels I decided to replace it with my unrefined sugar that is full of naturally occurring minerals. It added a wonderfully rich and satisfying flavour to the cookies. Coupled with the fact that I used organic, natural peanut butter with no added ingredients these cookies aren’t all that unhealthy anymore!
