Peach Fig Ice Cream Vegan -- www.sweetpotatosoul.com

Do vegans eat ice cream? You better believe we do!! Our ice cream is just as creamy, rich, and delicious as the kind made from cow’s milk. It’s also a lot healthier, and requires no animals to be harmed in the making ❤️🐮 Horray!!

This summer my most requested recipe has been ice cream! I finally purchased an ice cream maker, and started thinking about all of the varieties I could make with it.

That’s how I landed on roasted peach and fig with toasted pecans!

I don’t have a high-carb, raw food, or low-fat vegan diet. Actually, I have no diet at all. I became vegan because I love animals and the planet, but I also happen to feel my very best when eating this way.

A girl should pamper herself as often as possible. That’s my philosophy. I love getting my nails done, going to the spa for a massage, and seeing my beautiful Los Angeles esthetician Adina Diaz. I leave each service feeling revived, beautiful, and inspired to live my dreams!

There was once a time when I didn’t think twice about the products that were used in my occasional pampering sessions. Were they tested on animals? Were they vegan? Did they contain synthetic fragrances? Had any of the ingredients been linked to causing cancer?­­­­––All questions I never once thought to ask my specialist about their products.

Healthy vegan snacks?!

Oh yeah, you asked for it, and I’m giving it to you! Even better, I collaborated with my friend Megan of Healthy Grocery Girl to hook you up with not 1, not 2, not 3, not even 4 or 5, but 6 easy vegan snack recipes!!!

Trust me, I know how difficult it can be to decide what you should be snacking on to maintain your healthy lifestyle. Those 100 calorie snack packs are a joke, and that bag of tortilla chips presents far too much temptation, especially once there’s guacamole involved. …or sweet potato hummus. Oh damn! That stuff will guarantee an empty bag within the hour, without a crumb to be found.
