Summer brings warm temperatures, beach vacations, and ice cream cravings! Ice cream is a tasty summer staple, so whether you are staying away from dairy or just in the mood to show off your culinary skills, we found a terrific Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream recipe. Not only was this recipe created with nutrition in mind, but it uses delicious coconut milk as an alternative to dairy. Check out the recipe below, which uses our So Delicious Coconut Milk (inspired by Self.com)
MINT CHIP “NICE” CREAM

2 cups ice

Add the cacao or dark chocolate chips last and fold through. Pour into container and leave to set in freezer. Needs to sit out of the freezer for 30 minutes before serving.
Earlier this month, Earthbound Farm® launched a new organic Kale Caesar PowerMeal Bowl, the fourth flavor in the product line. This new PowerMeal Bowl comes just in time for summer picnics and is the pairing with an afternoon hike. The ready-to-eat salad bowl is the fourth and newest flavor in the line of single-serve bowls. Together with the three original flavors – Asian Noodle, Southwest and Spinach Quinoa — the full line of PowerMeal Bowls were redesigned to better communicate ingredients and flavors.
Kale Caesar includes tender baby kale, crunchy red and green cabbage, and sweet shredded carrots packaged together with roasted sunflower seeds, tangy aged parmesan cheese, crunchy multi grain croutons and a spicy lite Caesar dressing.
Earthbound Farm’s PowerMeal Bowls (4.93 – 5.58-ounce clamshells) are shipping now with suggested retail price of $4.99.

The Fourth of July is a great time to gather as family and friends, celebrating our country and the official start of summer fun. As you prepare your festive Fourth of July menus, we thought we’d share this fun red, white and blue Berry Granola Parfait recipe from Earthbound Farm. This delicious fruit + yogurt parfait combo is perfect for on-the-go or as a fun brunch alternative. You don’t really need a recipe (which makes it even easier for young ones to help assemble their own); the magic of parfaits is that you can layer your favorite flavors as you like. Just aim for about 1 cup (8oz) per serving. Check out the recipe below (inspired by Rachael Ray on the Food Network).
