    Made my own dairy free ice cream today! Super simple, just frozen bananas and mixed berries. Stored in the freezer for a delicious treat! Plastic free, dairy free, and healthy!

    I was inspired by Joy making her own yogurt, and I made some instant pot Greek yogurt! It is delicious and turned out much better then I had hoped. I will definitely be doing this again!

    I am going to be making bread this week, but I don’t have a good way to store it. Does anyone have a good suggestion for bread bags/containers? I’m also going to experiment with making beeswax wraps so this may work if I don’t find another option. Thank you in advance!

    Recently purchased silicone popsicle molds so I can make my own ice pops instead of purchasing pre-made, plastic wrapped ones. Plus I can make whatever flavor I want!

      This is a great idea! I keep thinking "I don't need more things", but in the long run if I chose to buy something like popsicle molds or cupcake tins, then I will have them and wont have to go to the grocery when I need something like cupcake papers. And it creates less waste!
