You’ve probably tried banana ice cream, but how about avocado ice cream? There’s so many directions you can go once you’ve got the base recipe of avocados, coconut milk, and maple syrup. Chocolate mint is just one idea! You can either make it into popsicles as shown, or enjoy it with a spoon.
Coconut and lemon are a winning combination. Sweet, tart, creamy, and a bit sour. Gooey lemon bars are always a special treat. Coconut cream lemon bars are a refreshig, zesty dessert!

Chia seeds are a fun and wonderful superfood! The gelatinous texture they get once they’ve had some time to soak is so uniquely nice and satisfying, and they are so good for you, too! Chia seeds provide many of the same benefits of flax seeds, but without the need to be ground up to be fully digested. They’re full of Omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, and fiber. And they make such awesome pudding!

Pomegranates and persimmons are two slightly out-of-the-ordinary fruits for the Western palate but are still easy to find. They’re right in that sweet spot between unusual and common that makes them exciting without being threatening. While they can be a bit trickier than your average apples and oranges (persimmons need to be super, super ripe and pomegranate seeds are just so tricky to get at!) the little bit of extra effort is completely worth it. They are really two of the most interesting and delicious fruits.
You can enjoy both these wonderful fruits in this pomegranate persimmon salad!

You can store it in your fridge for a few days and enjoy this superfood salad dressing again.
