Avocado Ice Cream
1 ripe avocado
the juice of two lemons
1 cup of half and half (try to find a natural brand that doesn't have anything added to it)
2/3 cup of pure honey ---this was a bit sweet so next time I will start with 1/3 cup and then add until it's sweet enough
1t-1T of poppy seeds
put everything in the blender and mix well. Pour into a small container and freeze.
that's it! I like to top it with fresh mango. Veggies for dessert--you can't beat that! The kids love it. A banana in place of the avocado would probably also work if you want to switch it up---they have a similar consistency. Happy experimenting!
The second is homemade hand soap. I like to make everything I can so that I know exactly what's in it. And I like simple, simple, simple recipes! And this one is.
reuse old foaming bottles or buy a few
fill 3/4 with water--always add water first
2-3 T of pure liquid castile soap
and you're done! you can buy liquid castile soap at health food stores or even some higher end grocery stores. The most common brand is Dr. Bronner's. So simple, quick, natural, and cheap!this also can be used as a face wash, body wash, for dishes, etc.
