How about some nice Chocolate-Raspberry Ice Cream? Dairy free of course!

This recipe is sooo good, and yes, especially during the hot summer months, but even though it is winter, it is still enjoyable. I went out and bought myself an ice cream maker, because I was missing eating ice cream, and I found some dairy free ice cream recipes that I thought I needed to try! Well, this soy creamer based dessert fit the bill nicely, and is a little chocolate raspberry indulgence, esp topped with the raspberries that were picked this summer.
The recipe can be found here:

No added fat granola!

Just made this wonderful granola the other day, and it's almost gone. The hubbs doesn't follow the recommended 1/2 cup portion, so it's gone rather quickly!
This is a cinnamon almond flax raisin granola recipe, that has NO added fat, and in this recipe, I used the option of maple syrup, instead of the agave syrup, mainly because I didn't have any in the house. I also added chia seeds, and roasted pumpkin seeds. This, like most granolas, can be changed to suit your individual tastes.

The recipe is from VegWeb's site at Cinnamon Almond Raisin Flax Granola

Hope you enjoy this as much as we are!
