Walnut Butter

Back during Brunch Week, I was given a large bag of delicious, raw walnuts.  Having some leftover after toasting them for my Pear Sundae, I decided to make some delicious walnut butter.

Banana “Ice Cream” {+ a giveaway}

Not gonna lie. I discovered this genius through Pinterest.  In fact, it may be my single favorite food discovery of 2012.  I love ice cream!  The only problem is, the scale doesn’t.  I try not to be too scale conscious, and more health conscious, but this is the best of both worlds!

If you haven’t heard of this phenomena yet, allow me to introduce you to this incredible creamy, vegan, single-ingredient ice cream: Frozen bananas.

Oh, and if you haven’t heard of Brunch Week yet, check out this post for more explanation.

Clean Piña Colada Popsicles

I have really been trying to curb my sweet cravings lately.  Fruit and peanut butter have been my main go-tos.  I feel like fruit is a pretty perfect dessert because it’s sweet and healthy.  Popsicles combine those worlds perfectly.  These sweet little numbers reminds me of summer.

Note that Florida has decided to have its most erratic winter in my life’s history.  January was boiling, and it is now currently in the 50′s.  But I have no fears.  These lovely pops are in the freezer ready for the much-too-hot winter temperatures that will return in a day or so.
