This recipe is vegan, paleo, gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy-free:
This evening I was craving something cold and sweet. Rather than running out to find some sugar-filled, coconut-milk-based ice cream, I decided to see what I could whip up in my blender. So, I gathered:
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (you could use any milk alternative here)
- 1 cup of frozen berries (you could also use frozen mango, peach or banana)
- 1/2 hass avocado (to add creaminess. Don’t worry, you won’t taste the avocado)
- 5 drops of liquid stevia, or other natural sweetener to taste
I blended this all together for 5 to 8 seconds in the Blendtec blender, and Voila! Fruit sorbet! Perfect for that summer-time ice-cream craving!
If you want a chocolate version, try adding a scoop of chocolate flavored, pea-protein powder, such as Orgain.

Once again, I am inspired to write a Thanksgiving post, since this is my favorite holiday. As I’ve said before, connecting to gratitude in our lives is an incredibly healing force that impacts all aspects of our bodies and minds.
The holidays are fast approaching and we all will be tempted by high-sugar, high-fat treats. On average, people gain 7 to 15 lbs over this time of the year. Not only that, but this high sugar intake depletes our immune systems, leaving us more vulnerable to seasonal colds and flu’s.

“You who do so much
to help me digest fats and such,
occasionally seem to be quite unhappy,
causing me to feel more than a little crappy.
