Autumn Fashion Wishlist

As the coziest season of the year is upon us, it's a simple switch to stylize comfort with rich jewel tones, walkable slip-on wedges, and soft fabrics. Layer prints and textures with scarfs, tights, leggings, and jackets to amp up sophistication without sacrificing warmth during the brisk days and chilly nights of autumn.

What is your favorite color to wear in the fall?

Farewell September | Little Thoughts

What I loved this month...

Getting ready on chilly mornings wrapped in a warm blanket
Eating late night pizza with family
Fresh, bright paint on the walls
Pay day after a long work week
Finding a Dunkin Donuts on a road trip for pumpkin swirl iced coffee
Sleepily listening to podcasts before bed
The feeling of autumn
Cozy cloudy days
Catching up on YouTube videos
Planning for the future
Growing personal and professional relationships
The feeling of peace and harmony even in times of distress

How was your September?

All Natural Banana & Peanut Butter Ice Cream Recipe

All Natural Banana & Nut Butter Ice CreamAll Natural Banana & Nut Butter Ice Cream

This ice cream recipe is the base for a healthy dessert that at minimum requires three natural ingredients and a decent blender. Although I'm never afraid to indulge in spontaneous cravings, this homemade partnership of bananas and peanut butter satisfies my sweet tooth just as well as any sugary treat. I've tailored the measurements for a single serving but it can be easily doubled or tripled and stored in the freezer if you prefer to make bigger batches.

First take a medium to large size banana and chop it into half inch thick coins. Put them into a bowl or on a plate and then chill them in the freezer for a few hours until they're frozen solid. When you are ready to eat or prepare the ice cream, take out the banana pieces and plop them into the blender or a Magic Bullet type of device adding in two tablespoons of a nut butter of your choice, my favorite being an all natural, smooth texture peanut butter. Then take any kind of milk you prefer (chocolate, almond, rice, etc.) and pour enough to cover the other ingredients, about a cup or so, using more if you want it creamier like a milkshake. Add in a little bit of vanilla extract, brewed coffee, honey, or cocoa powder to jazz up the recipe if you wish, however I find the mixture flavorful enough on it's own. Blend everything together for a couple of minutes until completely smooth and pour it all into a bowl to enjoy. If you find it is not quite solid enough to be ice cream, simply add a few ice cubes and blend again or store it in the freezer for a few hours until it hardens. Drizzle some extra nut butter or caramel on top or sprinkle on some chopped nuts, coarse sea salt, toffee bits or whatever topping suits your fancy.

Simple Banana & Nut Butter Ice Cream
Serves one to two

1 medium to large banana, chopped into coins and frozen solid
2 tablespoons of nut butter
1/2 to 1 cup of any type of milk

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 cup of brewed coffee
2 teaspoons of honey
2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
A handful of crushed nuts, toffee, or other candy
1/2 teaspoon of coarse sea salt

Blend the bananas, nut butter, milk, and any extras until smooth.
Scoop into a bowl and sprinkle on toppings, or enjoy just as it is.

What is your favorite healthy, homemade dessert?
