I am on a mission. To spread the vegan message, help others do the same, show how easy, simple and delicious it is to be vegan.

Make dessert recipes that do not make you feel bad for eating a whole bunch of them! These blueberry muffins with a naturally made pink icing accomplish just that!

How To Prepare All-Natural Pink Frosting!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. icing sugar
  • About 1/3 of a prickly pear or cactus pear (you could also use strawberries, but the color won’t be as vibrant, or beets if you do not mind the taste)
  • A little bit of almond milk or water to mix (not too much because you do not want the icing to be too thin)

Directions

  • Mix everything together and adjust it in any way you would like.

I also added buckwheat groats on top just to make them look pretty!

When I was 14, I used to hate exercise but then I finally found a workout I enjoyed doing so it was easy to stay consistent. I lost 45 pounds in a few months.I also started to eat healthier and learn more, however there are a lot of myths out there that I used to believe such as certain animal products being good for you. A few years later after watching "Vegucated" I knew I couldn't go on eating animals and participating in the suffering of animals so I went vegetarian. A few months later I went vegan and it was the best decision of my life. I no longer get bloated, I have more energy and I am able to maintain my weight even though I eat a lot. Most importantly I feel peaceful inside knowing I chose consciously not to consume animals or products of them.
