Score some points with the kids at your house (and maybe the grown ups, too!) with these easy and healthy Tropical Popsicles.Read More
It does seem kind of strange to be thinking of ice cream with snow on the ground outside, but I’ve been wanting to experiment with an ice cream maker for some time now. When a friend offered me the $50 Cuisinart Ice-20 she spotted at a thrift store for $9, I said “yes, please”!
Here’s a fun and easy idea for a special treat that your whole family will love: Banana Dippers.
Banana Dippers are like the humble country cousin of the more dignified Chocolate Fondue: something yummy dipped in melted chocolate. Plus, they make an easy gluten-free dessert.
I suppose there are a few people in this world who do not like chocolate, but none of them live at my house. We love our chocolate here at the Yankee Homestead!
And what, I ask you, goes better with chocolate than peanut butter?
Technically, you could use any nut butter in this recipe. For those with nut allergies, I’m guessing sunbutter would work, too. (If you try that, please let me know how it turns out!)
This recipe is easy, delicious and fairly healthy, depending on how much honey you use and how much fudge you consume! 🙂
I love these protein-packed bars! They make a great snack, treat or even breakfast.
These bars have become one of my go-to pregnancy snacks. I’ve been trying to keep something like this on hand in the fridge for grabbing a few bites of protein in between meals, or on-the-go.
We even ate them for breakfast one morning, warmed up in bowls with a bit of milk. (I used coconut milk in mine.) It was a big hit with the boys!
Oh my goodness, these bars are so good, and so easy to make! They are perfect as dessert, they pack very well for meals or treats on-the-go, and–packed full of protein–they make an excellent snack for pregnant and nursing mothers.
Whether you are required to live without dairy–as I am–or you simply ran out of milk and are craving hot chocolate, this recipe is for you!
I’ve tried a bunch of ways of making hot chocolate without real milk, and this is by far the best yet. This recipe was pieced together from several recipes I’ve read and tried. Feel free to experiment with the ingredients!
Recently, we enjoyed a morning of pear-picking with some of our favorite friends. The kids had a blast, and picked way too many pears for us to eat in a reasonable time frame.
