I'm a Christian wife & homeschooling mama, saved by faith through grace. I changed my family's diet from SAD (Standard American Diet) to healthy, delicious & nutritious traditional foods. I've recently discovered there's a name for the way that I eat. It's called Primal or Paleo (I like the diet and think of the men and women who worked hard from sunup to sundown, constantly on the go, eating meat, berries they picked, cheese they made. I do not believe in evolution). No grains, legumes, refined sugars, and no/limited dairy.

SNOW CREAM & Brownie Sundae!!

Yesterday it snowed. A LOT. But all that snow is good for something!

So we made snow cream today! My friend, Holly, posted it when they got snow a few weeks ago. I changed the sweetener from sugar to maple syrup, which was her idea after she made it. It was delicious!!!

Snow Cream
bowl of fluffy white snow (don't get yellow!!) it was probably around 8 cups
1 cup almond milk
1/8 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla

mix all together and enjoy!!

 It's after supper now, and I made the snow cream again. I also made Brownies, so we are having brownie sundaes! Delicious! If you didn't think I ate well before, surely you do now! :)

Black Bean Brownies
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (or 2/3 can refried black beans with jalepenos from Trader Joe's, bc that's what I had ;)
3 eggs
3 Tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
4 Tbsp Cocoa powder
sprinkle of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup honey
I added a couple half dropperfuls of Vanilla Creme Stevia, as well

Puree with blender/food processor/hand blender.

Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, keeping your eye on it the last fifteen minutes.

Top with snow cream for a delicious sundae!

Now I better eat some green salad before I turn into a snowmama!


  1. I'm so glad you actually tried it with maple syrup. I wish I had. In Southeast Tennessee my opportunities are few and far between.

    I made brownies on Cote's birthday using a recipe on the back of the coconut flour bag. No beans no additional flours. I love all these wonderful options. I'll have to try yours soon.

  2. I want the recipe, Holly! :)

  3. Awesome! I'm totally going to make those brownies tomorrow! ;)

  4. These were delish. I will make them again. :)
