Creator of Tall Hungry Girl

Meet Tahira Hayes, Founder of Tall Hungry Girl.

I’m a communications specialist by day and freelance writer, columnist and content strategist by night.

Tall Hungry Girl (or Boy—I haven’t forgotten about the men) is not just a playful slogan, but also a way of living. It means to stay hungry for life and actively and tenaciously pursue new experiences through travel, food, and healthy living.

I’m constantly looking for ways to learn, grow and share that knowledge with others in the process. This site is my platform for doing just that.

Dairy-Free Ice Cream

Dairy-Free Ice Cream

This is a great, easy dessert for my fellow lactose intolerant friends. It’s also Whole30 compliant and has no added sugar.


  • 4 ripe, frozen bananas - chopped into slices

  • 2 heaping tablespoons of almond butter (or peanut butter)

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

  • 1 cup (give or take) of coconut milk - I use the Thai Kitchen coconut milk in a can


In a blender, pour in coconut milk first, add chopped bananas, almond butter and cinnamon. Blend to your desired consistency. Depending on how thick you like the ice cream, you may need to add a little bit more coconut milk so it will blend better. I always have to stop the blender a few times to stir the contents. Serve, sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
