Learn how to make mint chocolate chip popsicles.
I cannot tell you how much I love popsicles. I am just one of those girls. I also love ice cream but when dairy and I stopped being friends, it was not a good thing because I love that creamy taste. I knew I needed to find a way to satisfy my sweet tooth and the craving I had for that cold creamy yumminess.
When I stopped eating dairy, I realized I was just craving fats. I switched out the dairy for avocado and it was a marriage made in heaven. I did not stop there. I knew I needed to start experimenting because the store bought coconut milk ice cream just was not doing it for me.
Also, suffering with digestive issues for the longest times left me with a boat load of inflammation, candida and liver toxicity. I started learning how to make foods that were easy to digest and good for my body. I looked for foods that would decrease inflammation and hydrate my body naturally.
