Vegan Paleo Fudge Tracks Ice Cream - Allergy Free Alaska

Vegan & Paleo Fudge Tracks Ice Cream

Creamy vanilla ice cream + rich & decadent hot fudge sauce + chopped almonds = pure bliss.  Seriously. You just can’t go wrong with vanilla and chocolate.  I’m very much an emotional eater; I’ve always been one, although I’ve curved it a lot over the last several years (or attempted to). Some days though, despite…

Gluten & Dairy Free Maple Pumpkin Pie

The first Thanksgiving that I was gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free was interesting. It wasn’t bad by any means, just different. I was going through a time of transition, an adjustment period in my diet, and I had to learn how to make my favorite recipes differently. It was actually my sister in law…

Paleo Animal Crackers

I loved animal crackers as a child. My mom would frequently buy them for me as a treat. I would play with them, bite a head off, play with them some more, dismember a bear… It sounds much more gruesome than it is, BUT admit it – you did it too! I wanted my children to…

Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer (Vegan/No Sugar Added)

I normally don’t take creamer in my coffee. Well, at least not anymore. I used to. Up until I changed my diet and couldn’t find the right sort of dairy free creamer substitute. I tried everything from dairy free coffee creamers to canned coconut milk to any and every dairy free milk under the sun….

No Sugar Added Cherry Vanilla Italian Soda - Allergy Free Alaska

Cherry Vanilla Italian Soda (No sugar added)

Alaska has had a record-setting hot summer; it’s been ahhh-mazing. This Alaskan girl’s arms aren’t halibut-belly-white anymore, they are actually kind of tan. In fact, they are the tannest they have ever been! My ice cream maker is broken (I just ordered a replacement piece), so we’ve been enjoying popsicles, sugar free lemonade, and Cherry…
