This cherry slushie is easily my favorite thing right now! Cold, refreshing, full of antioxidants. Plus cherries are a great anti-inflammatory and help with muscle soreness from workouts. The secret- the black cherry Mio. Gives it that extra sweet and tartness. Way better than that sticky, over sugared gas station kind. Add extra ice to get that perfect slush.
My house we love all things tacos. When a recipe for ice cream tacos came up on my newsfeed I knew there was a way to make a healthier version. This ice cream has a deep rich flavor from the coconut cream and the cacao. The waffles are fluffy and the cinnamon/coconut sugar blend gives a great pop that really compliments the ice cream.
