Coconut Whipped Cream

Posted on January 27, 2015

I have the perfect dairy-free topping for you! It’s my Coconut Whipped Cream, and it’s delicious. If you’ve given up dairy and are still hankering for something creamy to smother your desserts in this recipe is your answer! It’s not quite as airy as regular whipped cream, but it is close and has a wonderful, rich flavor. It’s my dairy-free topping of choice and will pair nicely with dairy-free desserts such as Paleo Pumpkin Pie and Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie. […]

Cherry Berry Syrup

Posted on January 16, 2015

If you’re wondering how to make pancake syrup from scratch, I’ve got you covered. This healthy pancake syrup recipe is made with blueberries and cherries, and sweetened with apple juice and stevia. If you don’t care for stevia, use a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup and it will be just as delicious.

Growing up I loved blueberry pancake syrup. Of course, in the old days the stuff we ate was packed with sugar and preservatives, hardly a real food. This […]

Pumpkin Whipped Cream

Use vegan Pumpkin Whipped Cream on gluten free pancakes, muffins and cupcakes.

This luscious vegan spread is made from coconut cream. The kind that comes in the can. A dairy-free frosting that’s quick and easy to make? Yes! And just for fall, I have made it pumpkin flavored, though you can thank Marla at familyfreshcooking.com for that, as it was her idea.

I have been enamored with vegan frostings and toppings made from coconut cream for some time, and have a recipe […]

Paleo Chocolate Frosting

Paleo Chocolate Frosting made with just three ingredients to top off your healthy celebrations.

This dairy free chocolate frosting is super easy to make and so delicious you will need to prevent yourself from eating it by the spoonful. Made with dark chocolate and coconut oil, it is a rich and creamy topping that can work on a variety of desserts.

I designed this chocolate frosting for my Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes, which my children (and their friends) have been gobbling up. I […]

This sweet, rich yet tart and tangy Key Lime Icing is a cinch to make and has great flavor.  I like to pair it with my gluten free Coconut Cupcakes to make Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes.

Coconut Cream Frosting

Posted on May 16, 2008

Frosting is one of my favorite foods; in fact, I consider it an actual food group. After all, what is a cupcake without frosting? It’s nothing!

Lately I have been stymied when it comes to the frosting creation process. Yes, I have my delicious Vegan Chocolate Frosting recipe, however, I have been lacking in the white frosting department. For me this has presented hardship because chocolate frosting just doesn’t work with Carrot Cake and lemon cake. […]

Vegan Chocolate Frosting

Posted on April 22, 2008

This is my all time favorite icing recipe. Lately, I’ve been using this vegan chocolate frosting for cakes, cupcakes, and also as a filling between chocolate wafers. My son loves this double chocolate treat –chocolate wafers with chocolate frosting– packed in his school lunch.

I promise, I’ll put chocolate wafers up here on the boards soon. That recipe just needs a few more rounds of testing until it is ready for public consumption!
