Coconut-Cashew Tiger Ice Cream

Hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as I am!

I have been DYING to write this post for a while now!  I am absolutely loving this ice cream recipe, and I know that it'll be a hit at your house too.  I have always been a fan of Tiger ice cream, and when we went plant based and dairy-free, I wasn't about to accept the fact that I might never taste it again. 

I have been experimenting for a while now, doing a load of researching and looking for natural food dyes and gut health helpers, as well as ratios of flavours etc.  After lots of experimenting, the results are better than I would have expected!  The black liquorice ice cream is coloured with food grade, activated charcoal, which is great for gut health, and the orange ice cream is coloured with both sweet potato and a bit of turmeric to add not just colour, but also anti-inflammatory benefits and a little extra hidden goodness!  I can now honestly say, this one is a gooder!  I will even be bold enough to tell you that I like it substantially better than the dairy filled version of Tiger ice cream, which I didn't think was possible. 

So...if you have a Tiger fan in your house, whether you eat dairy-free or not, this one is a win guys!  Creamy, delicious, melt in your mouth goodness with just the right amount of each flavour.  Just typing this up makes me want to go sneak another bowl full...Mmmmm...


Ok, so here's the scoop (pun intended)...

Soak your cashews (enough for both the ice cream flavours) for at least one hour (preferably overnight), and then blend all the orange ice cream ingredients together in a high speed blender.  Transfer to a bowl, and repeat the same method for the black liquorice ice cream.  Layer the two flavours of ice cream alternately in an air tight container, swirling slightly with a fork.


Place the container in the freezer and let chill for 8 hours...or longer.  If you plan on leaving it in the freezer for longer than 8 hours however, keep in mind that it will be quite hard when you take it out.  You will need to let it soften for 20-30 minutes at room temperature in order to scoop it out with an ice cream scoop.


See that creamy, yummy deliciousness!  Uh-huh, it's as good as it looks folks...probably even better...at least I think so.  Go make some right now and decide for yourself!

Enjoy!

Ban-Apple Smoothie

Quick post today to give you this refreshing Banana Apple Green Smoothie recipe!  And...I'm gonna give you the recipe, because how much can you say about a smoothie.  It's yummy, I promise... So I kind of have a process of how I blend my smoothies.  I own a Vitamix, which I love, and I use it multiple times a day.  I add the ingredients in a couple at a time and put it through multiple cycles.  Here's how I do it: Cycle 1: I start by putting the coconut water and the protein powder (if using) in the blender and putting it through a quick cycle.  See this post for protein powders I like. Cycle 2: Next I add the spinach and start a cycle.  Halfway through the spinach cycle, I add in the peeled bananas through the clear section in the top of my lid that pops off. Cycle 3: Once that is all cycled, I add the apples and the ice.  My vitamix has a setting with a snowflake on it, so I switch to that setting when doing anything frozen (ice or frozen fruit for instance).

"Glory Sauce" (Modified)

BEST SAUCE EVER!!! This sauce is not my original recipe, but I am a HUGE fan of Glory Sauce .  The only problem is, in its original form, it's an oil-based dressing (which most dressings are)...and I don't eat oil.  So...I "healthified" it, and honestly, I like it even better this way, which I didn't think was possible.  The original recipe is served at the Fresh Tracks Cafe, at the White Water Ski Resort in Nelson, BC, Canada, and can be found in their Whitewater Cooks cookbook, which is full of amazingly yummy recipes.  Anyways, I replaced the refined oil content of this recipe with some creamy, natural oils, and the results are pretty amazing!  It's the most versatile sauce ever, fantastic drizzled on pretty much everything.  I eat it over rice bowls, salads, Asian dishes, and I even drizzle it over baked potatoes.  So here it is... First off, I use this Braggs' brand Natural Soy Sauce Alternative rather than actual soy sauce.  It's a g
