Frozen Chocolate Cream

Brace for a brain-freeze! Our chilly chocolate concoction tastes similar to rich homemade ice cream. But lucky for us, our recipe doesn't require an ice cream maker.

Black Bottom Pie

When the weather's warm and you're craving a sweet cool down, reach for this custard pie. We love slicing through the simple graham cracker crust to reveal the rich chocolate and vanilla layering.

Banana Chocolate Pops

These banana pops may look decadently sinful, but they are sneakily better for you than most. It's all thanks to the kid-friendly pops' top secret ingredient - tofu.

Banana and Nutella Smoothie with Chopped Almonds

Kids will go crazy for this incredibly thick Nutella, peanut butter and banana smoothie snack. Instead of using heavy ice cream in our recipe, we opted for more healthful vanilla yogurt and soy milk combination.
