I'm a, passionate about helping others find purpose, inspiration and hope in the midst of their health journeys.


My kids don’t go to bed until they’ve had a bowl of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. This homemade, vegan version of their favorite ice cream is so easy to make AND healthy.

How many times have my boys opened the freezer expecting to pull out a pint of their favorite ice cream, only to find an empty carton left by the other brother? Too many. I realized that I could make our own with ingredients found in our pantry…and it’s healthier than the store-bought ice cream with much less sugar!

Have you ever had ice cream with spinach and cashews? Probably not! I can assure you that you will love this Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream recipe.

Raw Cashews

Pitted Medjool Dates
