Now that it’s summer, I think it’s fun to have some popsicles in the freezer in case you need a sweet treat. These are super simple and vegan! They just have chocolate Almond Milk, bananas, and almond butter. (You can also use peanut butter if you prefer.) Just blend the 3 ingredients, then pour into popsicle molds or little cups and freeze. If you don’t have popsicle sticks, you can always use a little spoon.
*This recipe makes about 6 (3 oz.) pops.
Enjoy! And happy summer :)
This post is in partnership with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze, but opinions are completely my own- I have been buying their almond milk weekly for years. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that make The Forest Feast possible.
While on the east coast for a wedding last week, Jonathan and I snuck away for a couple nights to his family’s house in Vermont, which is absolutely gorgeous this time of year. Blueberry picking is big there in August, and we found a stunning place to gather some: Merck Forest. I love freezing blueberries and using them instead of ice in drinks at cocktail hour. Cheers!
Continuing in the effort to make filling summer salads for lunch, yesterday I came up with this combo: 2 hard boiled eggs topped with pear tomatoes and cucumber (from a friends garden!), plus half an avocado (cubed) and a handful of chopped fresh basil. I tossed the whole thing with olive oil and a bit of truffle salt (obsessed with that stuff!).
I have just returned from a lovely trip back east to New York, Connecticut and Vermont to see family and friends and attend a cousin’s wedding. When I get back from vacation (usually having spent my time eating copious amounts of bread and cheese!) I often feel like I need something light for a few days. As I settle back into the studio this week, I am making lots of fresh but filling salads for lunch. Gorgeous summer tomatoes came in our CSA box this week and I am topping them with cottage cheese plus a handful of fresh basil and some avocado chunks.
