A few weeks ago Whole Foods Market asked me to create a few fun recipes with their yummy grapes.

How could I resist?

I was alone in my kitchen with five bursting bags of grapes. Green, red and black luscious, organic grapes. Ahhhh what else can a gal ask for?

After a few hours of recipe development, I created four yummy grape recipes (all to come soon- I promise).

But this one stuck out from the other three.

This here ice cone recipe is hard to out-do.

I mean- who doesn’t love an ice cone?

It’s the winner, in my book.

Not only is it a refreshing treat for my afternoon but it’s a perfect snack to serve to the kiddies after a full day of school.

I got this idea from my friend, Kirstin who is such a creative mom- she whipped out her handy-dandy ice cone maker and showed me how to make this simple dessert.

It only takes a few minutes to make….costs less than it would to drive to the ice cream parlor and buy an ice cream cone…and it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and vegan.

Hello refreshing.

You can now smile and keep your cool because Ben & Jerry’s ain’t seen nothin’ like this.

It’s a simple sweet treat kinda day.

Treat yourself to a snow cone, won’t cha?

I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
