Homemade Unicorn Smoothies…Dairy Free!

Everyone has been abuzz about the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino.  Of course it’s a little scary to get drinks there when you are dairy allergic so…. here is what we did.

For the Pink portion:

  1. 1 cup of ice
  2. 1 cup of strawberries
  3. 1/4 cup mango nectar
  4. 1/4 cup SoDelicious coffee creamer (Plain)

Blend in mixer.

For the Blue/Purple portion:

  1. 1/2 cup blue berries
  2. 1/2 cup SoDelicious coffee creamer (Plain)

Blend in mixer

Fill glass half full of Pink then drizzle Blue down the sides of the glass.  Add some more pink and then top with CocoWhip and sprinkles.

Yum! -SB

Strawberry Pie!

I love strawberries.  I’ve tried growing strawberries, but the wildlife in my yard always outsmarts me and eats the ripe ones before I can get to them.  We always have at least a pint in the fridge at all times.  I love strawberry shortcake, but it is not my families favorite.  So I tried this recipe.

I have made GF pie crust from a box and it was good, but for this one I made my own.

I like to use just rice flour for this crust recipe.  The crust hold up well and is not soggy.

The best part of this recipe is the goo.  It makes lots of goo! Plenty to lick off the spoon and maybe mix with some So Delicious Coco Whip.

Most of my house hold liked this recipe.  You can’t always please everyone, but I consider most a win. I hope you enjoy this refreshing Strawberry Pie.  -Susan
