What is the Feel Good Foodie Cooking Challenge?

This Cooking Challenge is a fun way for us to join together and cook the recipe of the month! It also allows us to collect feedback from all of you on your experience with the recipe, changes you’d make, ingredients you’d add, and more. It helps you get in the kitchen and try something new!

How does it work?

We’ll announce the Cooking Challenge at the start of the month on all social channels and in our Facebook Group. You will have until the last few days of the month to make the recipe and leave a rating with a comment on the recipe on feelgoodfoodie.net. At the end of the month, we’ll share photos of some of your creations and announce a winner of a grand prize gift of a $100 gift card to Amazon.

How do I enter the challenge?

To enter the challenge, leave a rating and comment on the recipe card. You can also share photos of your creations on Instagram Stories using #feelgoodfoodie and tagging @feelgoodfoodie or in our Facebook group.


We’re embracing the heat of the summer with this Almond Joy Ice Cream recipe. Almond Joy Ice Cream is a vegan recipe that’s made with a few simple ingredients in a blender or food processor. No churning or fancy ingredients necessary! If you’re not a fan of almond, no problem! Use your favorite extract like vanilla or peppermint and let us know how it turns out!

Giving back

We believe in spreading love and kindness however we can. We’re going to give $1.00 for every recipe rating to Share Our Strength and No Kid Hungry this month. Their mission statement is: “Share Our Strength’s mission is to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad. We’re doing this through our campaigns, like No Kid Hungry, which will end childhood hunger in the United States, and Cooking Matters, which helps low-income families learn to shop and cook healthier.”


Thank you all for joining us on the July Cooking Challenge! You helped us generate over 38 recipe ratings of Almond Joy Ice Cream so we’re donating $40 to No Kid Hungry! We randomly selected Nina as our gift card winner and our team will be in touch through email to get you your gift. If you are looking for what we’ll be cooking in August, head on over to the August Cooking Challenge.
