Blueberry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe

Homemade Popsicles are all the rage in food circles this year. They blow those plastic tubes of neon colored sugar water Popsicles out of the water! I officially declare 2011 The Summer of the Popsicle. It's a nice follow up to 2010 The Summer of the S'more. My family discovered frozen fruit bars last summer. I felt better about serving a snack that is fruit and juice. It became spendy because a box of frozen fruit bars never lasted more than a few days after I brought it home from the store. Lo and behold, the winter holidays dropped a family gift of a set of  BPA free plastic Popsicle molds similar to these down our chimney. Thanks, Santa me! ( Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience. ) Last week Mother Nature turned off the cold and turned up the heat to full blast. Ahhhh, a nice homemade frozen fruit bar would be refreshing in this weather.     Save this homemade popsicle recipe to your Pinterest boards for later! Share it with your friend

12 Dairy Free Ice Creams That Actually Taste Good!

What tastes better than ice cream on a hot and sunny July day? Maybe that’s why National Ice Cream Day is smack dab in the middle of the month on July 20th.

Unfortunately for us diary allergy and lactose intolerance suffers and vegans, we can’t always indulge in summer’s most cold and sweet treat. That’s not to say there isn’t dairy free ice cream available, there is but in my experience most of it is vanilla which highlights everything a dairy free ice cream lacks such as taste.

But never fear my food allergy friends! I put my taste buds on the line and after some arduous research, I collected a round up of 12 dairy free ices cream recipes that are easy to make and good to eat!

Pin this milk allergy friendly recipe collection for later!

11. So Delicious Minis Mocha Almond Fudge Bars -  because sometimes when an ice cream craving hits you want to buy than wait for the DIY to freeze. This isn’t an ad for So Delicious or anything like that. I tried them (and everything else they offered) at the So Delicious booth at the Ohio Food and Wine Festival last weekend. I’ve pretty much given up on dairy free ice cream because it is so hard to find one that actually tastes good. Most vegan ice creams offer vanilla which always shows how much vegan ice cream does not taste like the real deal! The almond milk in the Fudge Bars made my taste buds sing because it tastes just like cow milk ice cream but it is 100% certified vegan. I don’t know how So Delicious does it but I’m very happy that they do.

I taste tested all of the coconut and almond milk offerings at the So Delicious booth so you don’t have to. I’m selfless like that.
