Stevia-Sweetened Raw Lemon-Lime Snow Cones

View from our porch. Note: Mountain landscape not required for recipe!

Remember when you were a kid and shaved ices (also known as “snow cones” and “iceys”) were awesome? The syrup used to cover the crushed ice was likely made with loads of sugar, dyes and crap.

For this version, I employed my trusted Vitamix to crush the ice (Raw foodist confession: Our house of six raw vegans owns three Vitamixes, a dry blade and a special blade for crushing ice, which I used, although a normal blade should work fine.)


Stevia-Sweetened Raw Lemon-Lime Snow Cones





Liquid Stevia

I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg Bake

by Femme Fraîche March 06, 2016

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
