160x220_g3I am sorry I have been MIA for about a month or so.

This is my 100th post.

I meant to have a contest and I got really excited, but then the gifts didn’t pan out, then I got disappointed, and then I got busy.

I found my wedding dress and have been helping my bridesmaids find theirs. I have been working my butt off with freelance work, in order to save more for the wedding, and I started going to a chiropractor three times a week for my horrible back issues.

But today is a new day: It is the beginning of Vegan MoFo (Month of Food)!!!

To kick it off, I am giving you this quick vegan orange creamsicle recipe, which are dreamy to eat, low on calories and don’t use additional sweeteners. It is a bit tart and a bit sweet, everything a good ice pop should be.

Enjoy!
