Easy peasy. I used to hate that phrase. Up until my daughter started saying it. Then it transformed from overdone to cute. Today’s recipe from Simply Quinoa promises to be just that. Easy Peasy.   I like to make Friday nights a family night, though we are not entirely consistent!  Some weeks we have family game night – which has gotten harder to do now that we have a 2 year old that thinks it’s fun to pull all the pieces off the board.

That is until I developed a recipe for sugar-free ice cream!  This recipe can be tweaked for different flavors. I did mint chocolate chip because that’s my favorite. 😊   Enjoy this video tutorial on how to make it. You can also skip to the recipe at…
