Hey all you vegans out there, this dairy free Piña Colada Ice Cream might be just what you’re looking for on a hot summer day.  With a mere 3 ingredients (coconut milk, agave and pineapple), this simple vegan ice cream recipe will appeal to moms too.  I like the quick and easy dimension of the recipe and my boys love the flavor –they’ve been lapping it up all summer.

Ginger Cilantro Green Shake

Posted on March 16, 2010

The idea for this green smoothie comes from the amazing Sarma of oneluckyduck.com.  I recently purchased her book Living Raw Food and am loving it.  While some of the recipes can be complex, she has many that can be made in minutes. 

This Ginger Cilantro Shake is a hybrid of her Cilantro-Pineapple Shake and her Bangkok Baby.  Here is my version, a nice healthy green drink for Saint Patrick’s day.

Greeña Colada

I’m running out to the airport with one of these in hand to refresh and revive me on the dash to Denver.  Soon I’ll be in NYC doing signings and I […]

DIY Sparkling Beverage

Posted on December 21, 2008

Although I don’t drink alcohol, I do enjoy indulging in a sparkling beverage at festive events.

This little fruit based treat below is perfect for adults and children on special occasions.  My boys love it, as do I.  Here, I use pineapple juice, though feel free to use any juice of your choice and garnish with your favorite citrus or other fruits.
