Sweet & Tart Strawberry Lemon Popsicles // Tried and TastyWe are hot on the heels of summer and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve been wanting to delve in to the world of popsicle making for quite some time and I’m even more excited after seeing just how simple they are to make yourself. Today is a fun day around here at Tried and Tasty. Not only do I have this fantastic recipe for you, but keep on reading and I’ve also got a KILLER giveaway too! But first. Popsicles. 

I don’t buy them often, mostly due to the artificial colors, unpronounceable ingredient list, and cost. When I realized that all you need is just an Ice Pop Maker and your favorite fruits I was sold. I didn’t even need any additional sugars (the fruits are sugary enough). If I were to add more sweetener, my choice would be a bit of honey! I used organic strawberries (are you familiar with the Dirty Dozen & Clean Fifteen? You MUST check out my Clean 15 vs. Filthy 15: When Organic Matters post!) and a lemon. That’s it. Easy peasy right? Grab the recipe, but before you go be sure to enter the giveaway! 

Rhodes Honey Gorgonzola Crostini // Tried and TastyParty planning is a passion of mine and having great recipes on hand is a must. Hors d’oeuvres and appetizers are recipes I’m always looking for. With that said, I’m all about trying new and fun things! Everyone serves cheese and crackers – I want to stand out and be different! With this Honey & Blue Cheese Crostini I can do just that. With a blod strong flavor I can bet these tasty little bites aren’t yo’ mamma’s appetizers.

Gluten Free Cookie  Dough Blizzard // If you're familiar with Dairy Queen Blizzards, you know how yummy they are. Ice cream, your favorite mix-in, and away you go with the most delicious shake around. However, the excess calories can be avoided with this tasty alternative. Made with gluten-free cookie dough bites, you'll be surprised that it's not the guilty indulgence you've had for years! | Tried and TastyYesterday I shared with you how to make the Gluten Free Cookie Dough Bites in preparation for today’s post. Happy National Chocolate Chip Day! I haven’t been to Dairy Queen in ages, and I’ve really been wanting a thick and delicious milkshake lately. So I decided that I’d ‘healthy’ it up a bit so that I don’t have to feel guilty having a tasty treat. It starts with the cookie dough, throw in a couple scoops of ice cream, a few ice cubes, a splash of milk and away you go! I used the Rice Dream Organic Frozen Dessert which happens to be dairy free, and almond milk, so if you make the recipe exactly as I have you have a gluten free AND dairy free dessert!

Gluten Free Cookie Dough Bites // If you are a cookie dough fan, but not a fan of all the calories - sugar - and added lbs that cookie dough brings, you must try these! These Gluten Free Cookie Dough Bites are absolutely delicious. Made without ANY white flour or white sugar. Who said you have to give up all things delicious when you want to be health conscious? | Tried and TastyOh I am giddy over todays post for you! I love, love, love cookie dough. Well. Let’s be honest. I love any kind of sweet or treat you put in front of my face. However. My waistline doesn’t. With National Chocolate Chip day tomorrow, I have a fun recipe that I will be sharing with you (Gluten Free Cookie Dough Blizzard) – but I needed to show you how to make the dough first! Talk about winning recipe: no white flour AND no white sugar. Score!! The quest continues to eliminate those two icky ingredients from my cooking entirely and I must say, there is a LOT of goodness in the world that doesn’t involve them surprisingly. If you would have told me that before my health transformation I would have laughed in your face.

Really though, if you need a little inspiration and help getting the not-so-good ingredients out and get more of the good-for-you ingredients in, you should check out my Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (which have been wildly popular), Nutty Salted Caramel Coconut Ice Cream, and Strawberries & Chocolate Buttercream Mousse… to name a few. Oh, and let’s not forget the other great raw cookie dough recipe too! These Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites are heavenly as well! So what are you waiting for? Need to know how to make your own oat flour or almond flour? I’ve got you covered! It’s easy peasy!
