Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles (Paleo, Vegan)

These sweet and creamy Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles are paleo and vegan, and they are a delicious and healthy treat on a hot summer day!

Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles

It’s almost 4th of July, and I’m relishing in the fact that it falls on a Tuesday. It feels like an extra-long weekend, although Monday is a work day for many people. From what I’ve been hearing, most people are working from home or taking Monday off, so It feels like an extra-indulgent mid-week break!

While I usually don’t post recipes on weekends, I wanted to get these super summery and scrumptious Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles to you before you start the celebration with BBQs and fireworks. I just love the combination of berries and cream, and even better when it’s in popsicle form!

I love that these mixed berry popsicles are festive as well, with their red, white, and blue hues. I used strawberries and blueberries, but you can use any other types of berries as well, like raspberries or blackberries. Either way, you have to try them because this is such an easy recipe and it’s so dang yummy.

What fun plans do you have for 4th of July? I think we might head to the beach to watch the fireworks and try out some food trucks. Of course, I will enjoy this yummy cold treat as well since they’ll be calling my name from the freezer. While I’m not a sweets-lover, I can definitely enjoy 1 or 2 coconut mixed berry popsicles, when it’s over 80 degrees out!

Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers

Whole30-friendly and paleo marinated grilled greek lamb skewers are so flavorful and delicious, and perfect for the summer!

Paleo Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers

What is it about food on sticks that makes them so darn fun and yummy? Grilling season is in full swing, and I’m enjoying every bit of it because I love grilling and it adds so much flavor! If you agree, you need to keep reading because you’ll absolutely love this recipe.

I’m a huge fan of lamb, and it’s what I usually get at a restaurant if it’s an option. It’s just so flavorful and feels fancy, but in reality, it’s actually very easy to cook at home and quite forgiving and still tender if you end up overcooking it a bit. One of the newer Trader Joe’s products is grass fed lamb, so we’ve been enjoying it more often than usual and the husband and I have been loving it. And our recent favorite way to cook lamb is this grilled Greek lamb skewers!

The Greek marinade is what really makes this recipe shine because it’s just so flavorful with a salty, lemony punch. I highly recommend you marinate overnight because it truly makes a difference! I plan to keep this recipe in my weekly rotation, because we honestly couldn’t get enough.

You can use any veggies (or none at all) for this recipe that are appropriate for grilling. Zucchini, bell peppers, and onions are some of my favorites, but eggplants, tomatoes, or anything else that’s hardy enough to withstand direct heat from the grill can work.

Don’t have a grill? Try broiling it! All these Greek lamb skewers needs is a hot, direct heat for a short time, and it’ll be cooked in no time. Hope you bookmark this one to make this summer because it’s definitely a winner!

Paleo Cauliflower Nacho Cheese

Paleo cauliflower nacho cheese only takes 5 minutes to make, and it’s nut free and dairy free so anyone can enjoy it! 

Paleo Vegan Cauliflower Nacho Cheese

Well, the June gloom of Southern California is officially over! It’s hot and sunny over here, and I absolutely love it. I made it to the beach this past weekend, enjoyed some sunbathing, went on long walks around the neighborhood, and made this cauliflower nacho cheese sauce. It was glorious.

It’s been a very, very long time since I had cheese, but that doesn’t mean I don’t get cravings for it. Because CHEESE, guys. It’s just wonderful. Most dairy substitutes are made with nuts, but my digestion isn’t great when I eat a ton of nuts at a time. So when I recently saw that many bloggers were using frozen cauliflower in smoothies to make it creamy, I thought it would be a great idea to make this nacho cheese sauce with it. And it really delivers on the velvety texture!

Paleo Vegan Cauliflower Nacho Cheese

Sure, you can dip just about anything in this cauliflower nacho cheese, but I highly recommend you enjoy it with Siete Foods Tortilla Chips. They are just so darn crispy and delicious, and I’ve become a serious addict (especially the lime flavor!). If you don’t want to use it as a dip, you can even use it as sauce or dressing. I put it over some roasted potatoes the other day, and ermagah, the combination was amazing!

If you can’t eat the real stuff like me, and you want some cheese in your life, you gotta make this recipe. It’s healthy, nutritious, and allergen-free!
