Blender Chocolate Silk Pie
Today I have the ultimate holiday dessert for you....Healthy Chocolate Silk Pie! Because let's be real, holiday dinners are great, but dessert is always the best part of any celebration. {Especially when chocolate is involved}! In this recipe, a silky smooth chocolate filling rests effortlessly atop a raw, brownie-like crust, making all your wildest chocolate dreams come true! Plus, both the crust and the filling are made in the @Vitamix which means it’s super fun and easy to whip up!

Pumpkin Coffee Creamer
Every day I look forward to that glorious moment in the quiet AM hours before my kids wake up, when I am embraced by a warm, caffeinated liquid hug. But I'm not a black coffee drinker....I definitely prefer it to be dark brown with just a touch of sweet! Which is why I'm sharing this Paleo & Vegan Homemade Pumpkin Coffee Creamer recipe on the blog today! This creamy dreamy jar of liquid gold has real pumpkin, warm spices and is infused with vanilla beans....making it an extra special addition to any cozy fall morning! It's gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and has no refined sugar but is still irresistibly creamy and delicious!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Covered Coconut Truffles
I’ve decided to recreate and, dare I say, improve one of my favorite candies with the recipe for these Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Truffles! This recipe is even better  than a mounds bar, because…peanut butter & chocolate, need I say more? Plus it's a healthy alternative to all that candy you'll be slowly throwing away until Thanksgiving {c'mon moms I know I'm not the only one who does this}!

Chocolate Brownie Berry Pizza
This Paleo Chocolate Fruit Pizza with a Brownie Cookie Crust is too legit. too legit to quit {hey hey}! But seriously, in this recipe a layer of silky-smooth chocolate topping is slathered over an irresistibly chocolatey crust that's a cross between a brownie and a cookie, and topped with fresh berries. It's gluten-free, dairy-free and has no refined sugar…but no one would ever know it!

Chocolate Almond Butter Bites
We had a crazy busy week last week {if you follow my stories you saw all the excitement}! 😉 We held our annual kids’ camp for the community…and my own kids had swim lessons in the mornings before it started! 🏊🏻‍♀️ So of course I never left the house without packing stacks of snacks. 👍🏻 These Chocolate Almond Butter Energy Bites are some of our favorites! They’re paleo, vegan and only sweetened with dates {NO added sugar}! They are made with 7 ingredients, come together in under 10 minutes, AND freeze really well...so you can make a huge batch and then eat them for weeks! A perfect healthy way to satisfy those chocolate cravings! 🍫What is your favorite homemade snack?! . . https://joyfoodsunshine.com/almond-butter-energy-bites/ . . This morning I got to run in the rain for the first time in a long time. Some of the most significant moments of my life have happened outside during storms, so running in the rain is like balm for my soul! 🌧 “Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.” Hosea 6:3 . . . . #joyfoodsunshine #vitamix #glutenfree #vegan #dairyfree #paleo #feedfeed #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #howisummer #abmfoodie #almondbutter #Foods4Thought #healthyrecipes #paleodessert #veganfoodshare #foodgawker #eatclean #thatsdarling #foodblogfeed #eeeeeats #f52grams #thekitchn #lovesprouts #utahblogger #beautifulcuisines #bgbcommunity #foodblogeats
