St. Paddy’s Day is just around the corner…

Here’s a great little idea in case you want to share a treat or two with your favorite people.

This is so simple and you get spinach in your babes with no fuss!  And no food coloring!   (Every little bit counts, right?)   🙂

For the vegan icing…

  • 3tbsp of ‘Earth Balance’
  • 2c of ‘Wholesome Sweeteners’ organic icing sugar
  • 1c of organic spinach
  • 3tbsp of ‘SO Delicious’ coconut milk
  • 2 drops of ‘Simply Organic’ peppermint oil

With a smart stick or a blender puree the spinach and the coconut milk until a completely smooth.

Set aside.

Start with the Earth Balance… mix with a hand mixer or your kitchen aid… slowly add in the icing sugar… then drizzle in the spinach/coconut milk mixture and the drops of peppermint oil.

Adjust as needed.

The greatest thing about icing is that you can not mess it up!  🙂

If it’s too runny, add in more icing sugar… if it’s too thick, add in more spinach/coconut milk.

Play around and make it work for YOU!  🙂

Now, I know y’all know how to make a cupcake… but just in case you want a quick, simple, vegan recipe…

Here you go.  🙂

  • 1.5c of organic unbleached flour
  • 1c of coconut sugar
  • 1/4c of ‘Camino’ dark cocoa powder
  • 1tsp of baking soda and baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1tbsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4c of light olive oil
  • 1c of water

Today we added in a teaspoon of ‘Simply Organic’ peppermint oil… YUM!

So yes, today our cupcakes are chocolate mint.  🙂

Bake in a moderate (350) oven for about twenty minutes and voila.

Cool completely before icing.

Have a GREAT weekend y’all!
