Don’t worry…I’m fully aware that it’s currently September and I’m over here posting snow cones. But, to plead my case, it was 91 degrees yesterday, so I don’t feel too bad about making these yummy treats instead of sipping on Pumpkin Spice Lattes at this point of the season. Trust me. I’ll have pleeeeenty of PSL time in my future, considering we won’t see warmer temps in Utah until May next year. So I’m just going to be over here enjoying the sun a little bit longer. If you’re like me and still embracing the warmth, these strawberry snow cone printables are the perfect way to turn a boring old snow cone into the cutest little frozen treat!

Using only two ingredients, ice cream and espresso, create the perfect after dinner treat. Check out this easy and delicious Affogato recipe!
Winter usually includes a lot of hot cocoa, baked pies, warm crumbles, and gooey molten cakes. What it usually doesn’t include is ice cream. I’m not sure about you guys, but I don’t tend to discriminate when it comes to ice cream. Any time of day, any season, and usually even in any dessert too. With today’s post, I figured that I’d marry the two together to make the idea of ice cream in January a little more tolerable for those of you that like to stick to cold weather dessert essentials. You know…ease you into the idea of cold weather ice cream. 😉 The perfect winter treat…? Affogato. And it just so happens that today, I’m sharing an easy Affogato recipe! (Seriously….I’m talking two ingredients. So, yes, super easy).
A delicious and easy to make red velvet ice cream filled with yummy chocolate chunks!
For those of you that might not know, red velvet is actually just chocolate flavors dyed with red food coloring. It can also be dyed using fresh beets, but if I have any excuse to use chocolate, you can bet that I’m going to go the chocolate route! And I can’t just have a little bit of chocolate either…I’m adding as much as possible!
I love the feeling of a new year. It just seems to ooze the possibility of a new start, a clean slate, a fresh beginning. Everyone is back on the same playing field. Well, everyone that is just barely starting to get back into the habit of something new, that is. For all of you that have just kept doing what you’ve been doing all along and are now sitting back and laughing at the rest of us struggle to get through a full class at Cardio Barre, you don’t count. And yes, I may be speaking from personal experience.
Either way, anything that helps to spark a positive change, is a-ok in my book. I am trying to get back into a healthy workout and eating regimine and really want to get some things organized around my house. I feel like my entire life is in pure choas when things don’t have a set place to go and when I can’t find what I need when I need it. Yep, 2016 is going to be a year of progression for me. Health and wellness progress and organization and home project progress. Are you guys trying to make some changes in your lives this year? If so, what are you trying to accomplish in 2016?
If your goal is to eat more ice cream, then today’s post will totally help you achieve that goal! I’m sharing an easy recipe for chocolate cherry ice cream and let me just say, that it really is THAT GOOD.
Not going to lie, I’m probably more excited for Black Friday, but if you ask the hubs, it’s all about the turkey, sides, and the snacks too.
Oh, and don’t forget the dessert!
He’s definitely a sucker for fresh pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream, but I’m going to switch things up a little bit this year and serve his slice with something else on the side.
No, not vanilla ice cream. Sweet potato ice cream!
Wait…what? SWEET. POTATO. ICE. CREAM.?!
Yep, you heard right. I’m mixing up that typical veggie made for a casserole, and turning it into dessert!
Black licorice ice cream, to be exact.
I was never really a fan of black licorice until I got older. I feel like one day I just woke up and started liking it. Weird? Maybe. But either way, I’m sold now and I couldn’t let Halloween pass by without concocting a little bit of my own black magic.
But black licorice ice cream alone isn’t much fun. I needed to add a little something…
And that something turned out to be eyeballs and some creepy legs. And before I knew it, black licorice ice cream spiders were born!
