Hi friends! How is your summer treating you so far?!

I feel like this is the first summer I have really enjoyed in a long time. I know that probably sounds strange, but for the last couple years I’ve been blogging and working full time with one or two children.

As a teacher, I had about 9 weeks off in the summer and I often used it to stockpile blog posts and recipes so that I wouldn’t have quite so much to do when I went back to work.

However, this summer is my first summer as a full time blogger (Web Site Publisher if I’m trying to convince people I’m actually still a professional to some degree), and I’ve been able to set my own pace and relax a little.

And let me tell you, the pace I’ve been setting is ssllloooowwwww. But I ain’t mad about it.

We have had absolutely glorious weather here since the beginning of Spring and I feel like I’m getting an extra long, extra relaxing summer this year. I hope you are feeling the same way!

So, what better way to celebrate an awesome summer than a frozen, chocolatey treat?!

Although we don’t have any food allergies in our household, we do have food allergies in our extended family, so I am always on the lookout for easy gluten free and dairy free desserts. This vegan brownie base is adapted from my Flourless Mexican Chocolate Cake — it is my favorite gluten free chocolate cake and I use it (minus the cinnamon and spice) as a base for so many gluten free desserts!

This Gluten Free Coconut Cake is another fabulous option if you’re not into chocolate.

I wasn’t sure how it would work to make it a vegan brownie recipe, but I was so pleasantly surprised with the results on my first attempt! The dairy milk to almond milk is an easy swap, and we love almond milk in smoothies so I usually keep some on hand anyway. I was a little nervous about swapping out all of the eggs with flax eggs, but it worked perfectly!

I topped with some Chocolate Truffle cashewmilk Frozen Dessert from So Delicious — it’s made with cashewmilk but is so rich and creamy, you won’t miss any dairy! I love finding easy treats that those with allergies and without can enjoy just the same!
