Super Easy Soft Serve Ice Cream For One!

This is so easy, and so YUMMY!   No ice cream maker needed!  Just a food proccesor or blender!  Adapted from Happy Herbivore recipe here. 

  Soft Serve Ice Cream for one!

1 frozen Banana (freeze bananas with out their skins)
1/4 cup Almond Milk (or any milk you have!)
1 Dried Fig (that I soaked the day before)/ or honey, sugar, agave...just sweeten to taste.
1/4 tsp Organic Cocoa/or vanilla

Have some fun and add nuts and fruit too!

Throw all in your food processor(or blender) And whirl until it looks like soft serve ice cream!
Enjoy your ice cream right away!

I think this recipe would do amazing with home made coconut milk!
I am going to have fun making different flavours this summer!

Did You try it?  What flavours worked for you?

Grilled Lime Chicken with Yummy Chipotle Sauce!

 I was inspired to cook this meal when I recieved my first farm share of the season!  I paired the chicken with an easy fresh cole slaw!

9 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 lime, juiced
1 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper

For the Sauce:
1/2 cup yogurt
1 lime juice
2 tsp chipotle sauce

  1. Mix all ingredients in bowl or bag and marinade for 2 hours.  You do not want to marinade to long when using yogurt as a base. 
  2. Then make the sauce and refridgerate till ready to serve.
  3. When ready, grill till cooked!  The nice thing with thighs is that they are so easy and fast to grill! 

Check out all these yummy veggies in our first farm share!  We opted to get a full share this season along with eggs!
