Summer is the season I break out my ice cream machine and do some flavor experiments. This recipe was born from my local Farmers Market, where they sell fresh basil for $1/lb alongside ripe, local strawberries. The result is one of the best ice creams I’ve ever tasted!
When it comes to desserts on a healing diet, we need to be cautious. Even natural sugars are inflammatory when we eat too much. But life is also full of celebrations that call for something healthy and sweet. Here are my favorite recipes to meet that craving. For more delicious recipes, see the full AIP Recipe Archive.
This Valentine’s Day, let’s celebrate love in all its forms: familial love, deep friendship, romantic love, spiritual connection, empathy, love for the stranger, our bond with animals, tough love, love of nature, and most importantly self-love. Why do I say “most importantly” for that last one? Because if we don’t truly love ourselves, it’s very hard to love anyone else, and it’s also hard to heal. This recipe is worthy of celebration, and while it’s the classic Valentine’s Day colors, it’s delicious year-round, so feel free to make it any time you want to give yourself, or someone else you love, a gift.
