My husband and I are really having a lot of fun finding new vegan recipes to try. This one is from Vegan Cooking for Carnivores: Over 125 Recipes So Tasty You Won’t Miss the Meat (review to come soon!) that is written by the chef who cooks for Ellen DeGeneres. My husband is a HUGE fan of Ellen’s and DVRs her show every day to watch after work. Yeah, not all Ellen fans are female! Anyhow, here is a great recipe for a sweet and fruity snack I guarantee your kids will love! (and I admit, I have eaten a lot of them myself!) It is incredibly simple and only a few ingredients!
