Valentine’s day is right around the corner! How did that happen? So I wanted to share some tasty pink treats with you. I love making a special recipe for Valentine’s day since the restaurants get so crowded during this particular holiday. Which I feel takes some of the romance away when you are shoved into a crowded table at an overpacked restaurant. Instead, I prefer to stay home and keep the romance alive with a tasty treat or two! Most of these are yummy desserts but there’s also some breakfast ideas and a delicious cocktail to try.
I’m so excited it’s finally June! I count today as the start of Summer and to celebrate I’m sharing my Raspberry Nice Cream recipe (a non-dairy ice cream alternative). If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a sneak peek in my Instagram stories last week. This is a super simple dessert recipe with only TWO ingredients! and takes about 5 minutes to make. What I love about this nice cream recipe is that there’s no added sugars, no dairy and also no soy. Yay for being allergen free! It also doesn’t have canned coconut milk in it, which is something I tried experimenting with, and found that it didn’t keep the nice cream as creamy as I would have liked. This recipe has the texture and creaminess of a soft serve ice cream (love!). Grab the recipe below:
- 2 – ripe bananas
- 1 – 12 oz bag of frozen raspberries
- 1 – box of ice cream cones (optional)
- Peel your bananas and place in the food processor with the full bag of raspberries
- Blend till you have a creamy consistency
- That’s it! Time to eat!!
*A few notes:
*If you have leftovers and put them in the freezer, the next time you take your nice cream out try to allow about 30 minutes to left it soften before serving.
*Also I haven’t tried this with other berries but I’m betting you could swap out for other berries or even other fruits and it would be just as delicious!

Spring is one of those times of year when you’re ready for lots of fresh produce but at the same time (since it can still be a little chilly) you’re not quite committed to chowing down on crisp salads just yet. I think these 5 Spring recipes give you a good mix of both warm/soothing with some healthy options like Vegetarian Chili! That will still keep you cozy during the beginning of Spring. So now the only question is, are you ready to eat?
