Nicecream: Strawberry Pineapple and Mango

Summer is officially upon us! If you live in Ontario you’ve probably been just as surprised as me at the incredible weather we have been having. With this nice weather comes all the summer cravings, including ice-cream! Ice-cream is one of my favourite foods but its high dairy and sugar content leave me feeling gross. I came up with a solution. My very own dairy and processed sugar free “icecream.” Today I want to share two flavours with you!

Strawberry Pineapple

A04B6C2F-6C72-489D-92D9-D801A4208E62

You will need:

4 frozen bananas

1 cup of frozen strawberries

1 cup of frozen pineapple

1/8 cup of maple syrup (you can leave this out and still have a very flavourful icecream)

Start by blending the bananas in a food processor. When they are silky smooth add in the other ingredients and blend until you have a frothy consistency. Place in the freezer for 1/5-2 hours.

Mango

This might be my favourite flavour!

You will need:

4 frozen bananas

1.5 cups of frozen mango

1/8 cup of maple syrup

Start by blending the bananas in a food processor. When they are silky smooth add in the other ingredients and blend until you have a frothy consistency. Place in the freezer for 1/5-2 hours.

Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

 

I have been obsessing over cauliflower fried rice for months! I’ve decided it’s time to share the recipe with you! Not only do I love the taste, I also love the vibrant colors. This is day two of a 30 day nutrition reset I am doing for myself. I’ll be posting recipes that fit the paleo/keto/whole30 lifestyle. If that’s your jam, stay tuned!

Gluten Free Pizza Bites

Happy National Pizza Day! I didn’t know that was even a thing until this morning, at which time I knew I had to participate. Pizza has been one of the few things I miss from my previous gluten filled life. I channeled my creativity for 30 minutes and came up with these tasty bite size treats!

For the Dough: 

3/4 cup of almond flour

3/4 cup of white rice flour

2 eggs (and a yolk for sealing the edges)

2 TBSP of melted coconut oil

Salt and Pepper to taste

 

Other:

1/4 cup of Pizza Sauce of choice

1/4 cup of chopped Pepperoni

1/4 cup of chopped Green Onions

Cheese is optional. I did mine without and they still tasted great!

Mix all your dough ingredients together until you can form a ball. Dust a piece of parchment paper with some extra rice flour and roll the dough out. You can decide how thick you want your bites to be but I preferred thinner. Cut into small squares, mine were about 1-1.5 inches in length and width. Place the squares onto a parchment lined baking sheet. This recipe makes 18-20 bites. You should have 36-40 squares cut out of your dough.

Next place a small spoonful of sauce onto each square. I then added some chopped up pepperoni and green onion. Just a few pieces go a long way! Next, place the top layer of dough over the toppings. You will need to press around the edges with your fingers to help seal the bites. Don’t worry if some sauce gets pressed out.

The final step its to seal the edges with some egg yolk. I find using a brush the easiest way to do this. Paint the edges of your bites with the egg yolk. If you use too much you will be able to peel the excess egg off after cooking. Next, place them in the oven at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
