This site is about my life in the art studio. It includes drawings, paintings, knitting and cross stitch and fun art techniques. I will also include recipes and yoga and book reviews. This is a lifestyle blog with intentional and simple living ideas.
It’s been a hot and humid few days. My air conditioner works but it takes forever for it to cool the house down. So there are times, I don’t have it on because that would be an expensive electric bill!
What’s the next best thing to have to cool down from a humid day? It is ice cream!
Dairy free ice cream is very expensive. It also leaves my stomach is a little pain and feeling uncomfortable. So I decided to try making a FRUIT ICE CREAM.
OMG it is so simple!
Fruit Ice Cream Recipe
4 cups frozen mixed berries-use any fruit combination you want
1 cup coconut milk or any milk of your choice
1/2 tbsp powdered stevia or more to taste, also can use honey or maple syrup
Use a food processor. Place the frozen berries in the processor, along with the milk and sugar. Process until it is smooth. I had to make small portions because my processor wouldn’t work with it completely full.
Then place the smooth fruit mixture in a metal pan(bread pan), cover with cling wrap and freeze.
set it out for 5-10 minutes to soften before you want to eat it.
This afternoon, lunch was planned. Lately, my stomach has been picky. I have to eat gluten free dairy free and soy free. Having digestive issues, rheumatoid arthritis and lipedema, this is the best diet to keep inflammation under control.
Portobello Mushroom Pizza
Vegan parmesan cheese
Set toaster oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the stems and scrap out the black veins of the mushroom. Use a spoon or something blunt.
Put some olive oil on the mushroom where the stem was.
Bake in toaster oven for 3 minutes.
Flip the mushrooms over.
Add tomato sauce and cheese. Bake for 20 minutes. Keep an eye on it, mine was done in 15 minutes.
I served it with potatoes fried in olive oil. You can make a salad or have it with spaghetti. I was craving potatoes!
I have been searching for new cookware. I like using nonstick pans but once they get scratched it’s not healthy to keep using them.
I was looking at stainless steel, but the cost of them has increased and I couldn’t justify spending that money on pots and pans that I don’t use. So I opted for nonstick pans. I also chose to buy the pans only not the entire set.
I wanted a smaller Dutch oven as well.
These products are amazing. The quality and how it cooks food evenly is unbelievable.
I’m very happy I spent my money on these products.
