Hummus is one thing that I eat consistently. Rarely do I not have a bowl of fresh, homemade hummus in my fridge. Sure, hummus is great as a dip or for wraps but it also works perfectly on salads.

This Mexican Hummus Salad is not just an awesome, fast lunch but also supplies your body with a great deal of much needed vegan protein. I actually make a hummus salad several times a week and mainly just because it’s really quick to make and I know my boys will love it.

Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream Cake Recipe - Vegan Family RecipesStrawberry Ice Cream Cake - Vegan Family Recipes

How crazy is it that it’s already the middle of July? My youngest just turned two over the weekend and I had family visiting. Needless to say I haven’t been getting anything done.

This strawberry ice cream cake is something I actually made a while back and wanted to post for 4th of July. Oops!

After making the super simple Raspberry Coconut Ice Cream I knew that I could use that basic ice cream recipe in so many other recipes. I could have made this a raspberry ice cream cake but I love that you can make it with nearly any frozen fruit. So strawberries it was!

The crazy part of this recipe is that you only 4 different ingredients.

Almonds – Dates – Coconut Cream – Strawberries

Crust – Ice Cream Filling – Topping

The crust is a simple 2 ingredient on with almonds and dates. Just pulse it together until it’s nice and sticky.

There used to be something I loved about microwave popcorn. Maybe it was the salty, fake cheese smell or the fact that it was fun to open the bag and release all the steam. Once I went vegan, I never bought microwave popcorn mainly because it usually isn’t vegan friendly. Even when you do find…
