Healthy Homemade Ice Cream

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Wet-Nap but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #showusyourmess

I have been on a healthy lifestyle journey since February. I call it a journey because this is not a quick trip. I have lost 42 lbs so far. I get a lot of questions about how I did this and what the heck do I eat. So, I thought that I would share one of my favorite treats that is easy to make, sugar free, whole 30 approved & delicious!

Who says that ice cream can't be healthy? Not me! Even my kids love this yummy frozen treat.
Here's how to make it.

1- Gather your ingredients

Healthy Homemade Ice Cream

2-3 c. frozen pineapple 
10 fresh strawberries-washed and cut
1 can full fat coconut milk-chilled

2- Put all of your ingredients in your heavy duty blender & mix until blended. 
I use a vitamix and it works fantastically!

3-You can devour now or you can transfer the ice cream to a container and 
put it the freezer to harden. 
We usually gobble it right up, but if you are not in a hurry to eat it, or want it to be scoopable, I would put it in the freezer for a few hours.

Now you are ready to enjoy...our favorite part!

Like all ice cream..this recipe can get a little messy. We always have Wet Nap wipes handy.
I love these things!

Why do I love them you ask?

1. They are super soft
2. They are strong enough to clean up our messes
3. Plus they moisturize ( I have 3 girls..this is a big deal at our house)

I use Wet-Nap wipes all the time! There is always a container in my car, craft room and kitchen. You can pick up Wet-Nap wipes at Walmart in the napkin aisle. Plus, you can print this coupon to help you save  even more money on Walmart's low prices. (while supplies last)

I hope that you will make this delicious healthy ice cream! You will be so glad that you did!

Happy Creating!

DIY Back to school ideas- Locker Decorations

I'm excited to be sharing an easy back to school idea.

sassy style it just me, or is anyone else freaking out that school is just around the corner? I am one of those moms who LOVE back to school time. But I can't believe it's here already! Crazy!

This year, I have 2 girls that will be in Jr. high and I need some cute locker accessories/decorations.

Because really, isn't that what school is really all about? That and cute clothes and shoes. Oh and boys..I can't forget about the boys.

When I went in search of some cute locker accessories, I couldn't find any that my girls would love. The ones that I did find were not that cute. So, I figured I would make my own.

Sassy Style

I pulled out some of my favorite Hazel & Ruby supplies and got to work.

This was an old forgotten clipboard that I found forever ago at a yard sale. I took the clip off and sprayed it gold (of course) and then painted the board white. Once that was dry, I added some letters and an arrow from my Hazel and Ruby stencil masks. I just picked random letters because I liked the look, but you could certainly use all of the same font. After the masks were placed, I sprayed everything a fabulous berry pink. I added some magnets so it would stick in their locker. Easy peasy.

Because I am a mom to girls, we all agree on the fact that you can never have too many accessories. Same idea goes for locker decorations. I found this cute pink, white board at the dollar store. It was fine by itself, it just needed a little something extra. I pulled out my fat roll, Quote Me washi tape and put a strip on the side. This is one of my favorite washi tapes because:
A-it's actually really sticky
B-I LOVE the empowering words and quotes. 

This is the perfect little detail. My girls will be reminded of how awesome they are every time they open their locker. This makes me happy, happy, happy!

Last but not least, I made some simple picture clips using plastic chip clips from the dollar store, Hazel and Ruby washi tape and some ribbon. I just glued a magnet to each one. These will be perfect for notes, pictures or quotes that my girls might want to display.

Note: All of these Hazel & Ruby products can be purchased at Michaels
