Do you have access to a mulberry tree?  Is there one dropping copious amounts of berries into your yard?  We do!  I’ve been trying to come up with recipes to use them up and I have a winner!

Mulberry Frozen Yogurt

1 qt plain yogurt (Locally I like to use Kalona Supernatural)

2 T maple syrup

a dash

1/4 c pureed mulberries

Mix all of this together and either process in an ice cream maker or stick it in the freezer, stirring every half an hour or so until it is firm.

Who doesn’t love chocolate?  This is one of my biggest struggles, I could definitely probably eat chocolate every meal and be happy.  I had to figure out a way to make my chocolate habit beneficial to my body.  Well folks, I figured out a way.  Here’s the recipe I use to make the most DELICIOUS chocolate sauce.. It’s wholesome, natural, and is such a yummy treat!  I use it to dip bananas, nuts, cheese, on top of homemade/natural ice cream, or sometimes even plain.. Rarely does a day pass without me eating at least one serving of this stuff.  You can thank me when you’re licking the bowl clean!  🙂

Megan’s Fabulous Chocolate Sauce

3T honey

1 1/2 T cocoa

1t coconut oil

1T peanut butter/almond butter

dash of vanilla

Put all ingredients in a large ramekin or very small bowl and warm it on the stove or in a toaster oven until it’s warm or is starting to bubble. Stir until everything is smooth and combined.  Use it to dip whatever you wish.. My favorite is bananas!  Yummy!  🙂
