Adopt a Blogger: Megan from Allergy Free Alaska

I'm taking part in Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger again. If you’re not familiar, Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger is a monthly event created by Sea at Book of Yum to help us gluten-free bloggers get to know each other and recreate each others recipes. This month it is hosted by Sunny from And Love It, Too!. This month, I adopted Megan from Allergy Free Alaska (formerly MAID in Alaska).

I love finding bloggers that are in the same point in their lives that I'm in...We are both 31 year old moms of two kids that are about the same age (she has girls, I have boys).  We have very different health issues, but both our families thrive on living gluten and dairy-free.  And on top of that she has some pretty fantastic recipes.

So, to finish off July (National Ice Cream Month), I'm sharing two of her recipes.  First up is her Orange Creamsicle Popsicles.  The first two times I made this, it never made it to the freezer. And I have to say, it tastes just like an Orange Julius that way.  But, I had to make it again, because my little one requested that I make an orange ice cream. Yeah, I really didn't even get to take pictures before he started devouring his...

Second up, is her Fudgesicles, if you have creamsicles, you have to have fudgesicles, right? My older son loves chocolate, and I mean loves chocolate.  Just today he told me that he wish the world was all chocolate...so, yeah, I didn't get many pictures on the fudgesicles, before he started devouring them, either.

They are both delicious and the perfect replacement to the dairy ones that I grew up with...and definitely a lot healthier.  Both of these recipes have either no sugar or very low sugar in the form of agave or honey.  So, there is no guilt with these treats!

Here's one last photo of the kiddos enjoying their treats....and don't ask me why my older son is wearing a jacket in 95 degree weather--I have no idea! 

Thank you, Megan, for such fantastic recipes, my boys love them!


  1. I am so, so honored you adopted me for Adopt a Blogger. Thank you so much for trying my recipes and giving me such a wonderful review! And who can resist those handsome fellas?! =) They are sweet!

    1. Megan,

      It is my pleasure! I absolutely love your blog! And I think your girls are pretty dang cute, too! :)


  2. It is perfect popsicle weather & it looks like those recipes were a hit! I'll have to go check them out. You're never too old for a popsicle! :)

  3. These look so good that I'm having a hard time choosing which to make first :)

    1. Make them both! They only take a few minutes to make. :)
