Today we made Strawberry and Banana Nice Cream with a recipe from my cute friend at CocoCoconuts. It’s called Nice Cream because sometimes Ice Cream can be really quite mean… to my butt. Haha bad joke. But I am going strong 8 days without eating any treats. I started March 30th and am on a rolllllll. If you know me you probably wouldn’t believe that no candy has touched these lips. Especailly during one of the best candy holidays of the year!!! No Peeps, Reeces eggs, chocolate bunnies, nothing. I literally held a bag of Mini Cadbury eggs and didn’t even sneak one. (I had already ate a whole entire bag the week before, but that’s beside the point! 😉 Actually that’s why I decided to do this no sugar challenge. I know there’s some sugar in the plain greek yogurt I eat and also 1 gram in my protein drink but I am letting those slide. I am mostly trying to cut out the really bad sugar I consume on the daily. Like a bag of sour patch watermelons constantly in my purse etc etc. I feel so good too. Treats don’t even sound good now… and I pictured myself curled in the fetal position dreaming of donuts. Ah man, donuts are my weakness.
To go along with our Nice Cream we needed some pretty bow cone wrappers. Using my new Bow Die Cut and papers from the newest Dear Lizzy collection that should be available very soon. The bottom left paper on the cone is from the A Beautiful Mess (Messy Box) this month. Matches perfectly with Dear Lizzy stuff.
I bought Ice Cream waffle cones that came with a paper wrapper on each one that I used for a template.
Next, I cut a bunch of different patterns. Then made coordinating bows and last, hot glued it all together. Nothing else was sticking very well for me.
Make some bow cone wrappers and Nice Cream and you are ready to party in style.
