Austin’s very own NadaMoo! is in the race for VegNews Magazine’s Veggie Awards in the Favorite Vegan Ice Cream Category, and since we’re big fans of theirs, I wanted to share the news.

If you haven’t tried Nadamoo! you need to, and if you have you know they’re creamy, not overly sweet and rooted in goodness. They start with luscious, creamy coconut milk, known for its healthy fats and natural sweetness, add agave nectar and tapioca syrup, naturally low on the glycemic index and finally add the last bit of magic, blending in the flavors and ingredients that make NadaMoo! one of a kind.



This one’s our favorite!

Lotta Mint Chip

When we signed up for our weekly veggie share we made a pact to challenge our comfort zone and use every item, regardless of whether we’ve never heard of or tasted it.  Occasionally the obscure squash will throw us off a bit, but for the most part we’ve done pretty well learning to use all the items each week. In fact, we’re almost disappointed when something common, like lettuce, is thrown in the mix. This time of year our weekly veggie share is packed with items like crisp green apples, kale, cauliflower and mushrooms which are all items we regularly use so there’s not much exotic going on in our kitchen.

So when you find yourself with 8 delicious, crispy green apples, you can either throw them in a smoothie, juice them, make homemade apple sauce, or make something much more enjoyable. Like  Baked Apple Crisp.

Think apple pie, but healthier.
