So Delicious Dairy Free Coco WhipBack in the day it was impossible to keep a tub of Cool Whip in the house because it was irresistible to me plain (on the end of my finger) or on top of pudding, cake, pie, and ice cream. It wasn't until later in life that ingredient choices became an issue and my beloved Cool Whip was deemed unsuitable. Tears were shed as a chapter of my life came to a close and desserts were no longer topped until So Delicious Dairy Free introduced CocoWhip.

CocoWhip, available in Original and Light, is made from organic coconut milk, it is naturally sweetened, and contains no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors. It is certified gluten free, vegan, and kosher parve, and Non-GMO Verified. CocoWhip ingredients are: (more…)

Simple and Delicious Blueberry Banana Parfait

September 5th, 2014 by Bella McKenzie

One thing that I have really enjoyed this past summer is making breakfast parfaits.

I do not know what it is, but they are just light on the system and they kinda trip the body into thinking that it's getting a sugary treat so you don't crave sugar all day (YAY!)

This parfait is sweet, HEALTHY, and satisfying!

sweet potato cakeThis cake is soft and reminiscent of the filling in pumpkin pie.  Not surprising really, when it has mashed sweet potato as its main ingredient.

To do ahead of time

Cook sweet potatoes in the microwave (or oven if you have it running for something else) until they are soft.  Mine took about eight minutes - four small sweet potatoes. Leave to cool then remove the peel and mash.  I found it easiest to cut an end off and scoop the sweet potato out with a circular action with a fork.  Do this ahead of time so you don't be tempted to work with them while they are very hot and burn yourself.   Keep the peel and spritz with oil, put on a baking sheet, and cook for 20-30 minutes in the oven for a crisp scoop for spicy salsa.

Ahhh, ice cream. Even better: salty and sweet ice cream. The combination of salty and sweet is one of my favorites. I love taking a bite and not knowing exactly what it will taste like.

Also, in case you were wondering, I use this Kitchenaid ice cream attachment for my stand mixer. It works great - during the summer, I keep the bowl frozen in the freezer so that any time I'm in the mood for ice cream, I can grab it and make a refreshingly cool treat immediately.  


I finally ate the last of this last night, and I'm really sad that it's gone. It was the perfect ending to the last weeks' worth of dinners.

I guess I'll just have to make some more. 


I am a firm believer that ice cream is appropriate at any time of year, even when it's -20' outside (although it never gets quite that cold here in the Pacific Northwest), but it is especially precious and fulfilling when the sun is blaring and you've been playing outside all day.

Easy Tamale Pie: Gluten-free and Dairy-free

August 29th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

A few years ago, I made a version of tamale pie where I made tamale dough and put something in the middle (honest, I can’t remember; it might have been chili inside). I’m not sure why that went out of my rotation. More recently, I made a tamale pie as more of an experiment with black beans and salsa on the bottom and tamale dough on top. That was a huge hit.
