    This rich Paleo Dark Chocolate Coconut Pudding is so easy to make for an every-once-in-a-while treat.

    Paleo Strawberry Apple Parfait

    I eat with my eyes first, so parfaits – with their repeating layers of tasty goodness – are always appealing. This one’s made with fruit and coconut and some chopped nuts for crunch (and contains no extra added sugar), so it’s perfectly nutritious. [As an aside, I get lots of read more…

    Blueberry Rhubarb Granita

    Sometimes, all the stars line up for a fantastic recipe to be born.

    Coconut Butter and Almond Butter Cups

    I started making dark chocolate almond butter cups a couple of years ago for special occasions, and they’re so easy to assemble that it should be illegal.
