Confession. About seven years ago I went vegan (cold turkey) and kept with it for three (long) years. It was a great learning experience for me in a nutritional aspect but in the end it was too strict for my personal taste. I know there are a lot of vegan lovers out there and for that I commend you. Due to this, I thought I'd dedicate one of the delicious recipes vegans (as well as others) could divulge in as we head into summer. These ice cream bars are yummy, highly nutritious and wonderful for the body. Enjoy!
