free of everything but bananas, haha
Welp. It happened. We hit our first 100+ degree day here in Arizona and it's only May.
It's fine. I'm fine. We're fine.
Summer heat usually puts me in a big funk (bring on alllll things fall and winter and I'm a happy girl) but the last two years have left most of us in a big funk and I am determined to inject so much joy into this year I started with healthy ice cream.
Or what is most commonly called "nice cream".
Made with three simple ingredients, this was a HUGE hit with the kids. They feel like they're getting an indulgent treat every day and we are finding a fun way to connect in the kitchen AND stay cool.
Because the good Lord above knows we will need it for the next few months.

Do you have a favorite Nice Cream flavor? We also did a batch of Cinnamon Roll that I will add to the blog soon too!
We just got new popsicle molds and are on the hunt for a good ice cream maker and we have SO many ideas for this season!

In celebration of #NationalWatermelonDay with WTRMLN WTR, these coconutty and creamy watermelon popsicles are perfect for a hot summer day for adults and kids alike. My little guy devours these and we love to enjoy them at home or by the pool.
1 + 1/4 cup cup fresh watermelon slices
½ cup WTRMLN WTR
½ cup coconut milk
Puree 1 cup of chopped WTRMLN slices with ½ cup WTRMLN WTR and pour into popsicle molds so molds are 2/3 full.
Freeze for 30 minutes and pour chilled coconut milk on top of frozen watermelon blend.
Top with remaining watermelon slices and freeze for an additional 30 minutes. Rinse molds under warm water to release popsicle, add dried or toasted coconut for crunch and enjoy somewhere near a pool or beach.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
