Golden Milk Popsicles

On the evening of Mia’s 7th birthday we took the kids down to Pearl Street and decided to get some treats. We ventured into Fior di Latte and they had quite an impressive selection of gluten & dairy free options, one of which was a Vegan Golden Milk Ice Cream.

This is our favorite meatball dish that we make at home! We created this recipe a few years ago when we were temporarily avoiding eggs and nightshades (amongst other foods) and wanted to make a meatball dish that was not bathed in tomato sauce (a nightshade) or bound together with eggs.

Strawberry & Chamomile Tea Popsicles

To say that we have been into popsicles this summer would be a serious understatement! During our family's recent beach vacation we made batches of both my chocolate fudgesicles and my mint chocolate chip popsicles nearly every single day. (And yes, I do travel with our popsicles molds!) It makes me so happy that even my relatives who don't have food allergies truly enjoy these healthful desserts. Returning back to [...]
