    Vegan Superhero Fruit and Nut Bars (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    Easy Homemade Vegan Ice Cream: Cherry Cashew (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

    It’s getting hot here in Arizona and what better way to cool off than with a big bowl of this Easy Homemade Vegan Ice Cream? I love ice cream. In fact, it’s one of my favorite desserts.

    This is the best chocolate avocado frosting on the planet. Featured here in my chocolate peanut butter Nutsola tart, but also delicious pipped inside fruit or straight out of a bowl with a spoon (not that I’m speaking from experience.) It took me a long time to make this. I kept thinking it would taste like avocado but you actually can’t taste the avocado at all!! The rich chocolately cacao powder takes over. The avocado makes it creamy. The coconut oil adds a bit of silk and shine. And the agave syrup and vanilla powder give it that true frosting sweetness.
