Last night, Alex and I had a conversation about the change of seasons and how much fun it has been experiencing our first spring and how excited we are about the fact that summer is finally here! There are flowers blooming everywhere, the corn fields have a thin green layer of new growth over them, and the chilly days have been replaced with warm breeze. The days are getting warmer and warmer, and we are now grilling every day and pouring all of our drinks over ice!
Today, I am teaming up with International Delight® Iced Coffee to share with you my summer staple ice cream flavor Cinnamon-Mocha! I would usually gravitate toward something fruity, however the spice of the cinnamon, the flavor of coffee and the creamy flavor of International Delight® Iced Coffee has me all kinds of excited! Also, International Delight® Iced Coffee is easy to pour over ice and drink, but it also provides great flavors to different recipes… like this one!
This is an easy recipe. The hardest part is waiting for the ice cream to freeze completely.
 
Ingredients
2 cup of heavy cream
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Instructions
  • Combine all of the dry ingredients and set aside
  • In a medium bowl, Add the Cream, International Delight® Iced Coffee  and mix until well combined
  • Combine both of the dry and wet ingredients
  • Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and mix according to the directions for your machine
  • After 30 minutes transfer to a airtight container and freeze for at least four hours

If you don’t have an ice cream machine, do not worry just pour the International Delight® Mocha Iced Coffee over ice and enjoy. These days, I am also into the International Delight® Caramell Machiatto Iced Coffee flavor. It’s a classic coffee house combo, without the hassle of getting the kids in the van and having to put make up on!
International Delight® Iced Coffee is affordable and convenient and you can pick it up at your local Walmart.

The weather is finally warming up and we are taking all of our meals outdoors. That’s right friends, I have very little indoor plans for the next two months! We are so excited about it, that Alex and I went out and purchased a grill!!  We have been wanting one for a while and it just so happened that we found a floor model on sale! yes!  Best way I know to celebrate this warm weather is to make my Pineapple and Cilantro Turkey Burgers. Friends, this is not your regular burger.  These burgers are HUGE, messy, and absolutely delicious!
Most of the time I try to stay away from the mess, but not this time. This time I teamed up with Dixie Ultra® Paper Plates, because I know that they can stand up to the heaviest messiest foods, because of their Soak Proof Shield™  and their FlexProof™ technology. I stocked up on these plates and use them everyday.  They are microwave safe, recyclable, cut resistant and they have a new, innovative rim so all the food actually stays on the plate! Win!
My favorite part of this burger is all of the cilantro and the grilled pineapple is super sweet and makes the burger taste so good!

Avocados from Mexico

If you have followed along with me on Instagram for any time now, you know that I am a big fan of smoothie bowls. I love them! There are so many possibilities when it comes to taste and flavors and there really is no wrong way to make them. These days, I try to pack my bowls with foods that are going to fuel me and help me feel my best. Today, I am teaming up with Avocados From Mexico to share a fresh and nutritious Latin-themed Avocado and Mango Breakfast Bowl. This bowl has all of the latino flavors that I grew up eating as a kid, like mango and guava! It’s also light, bright, and delicious… perfect for the warmer weather that’s headed our way!

I love adding Avocados From Mexico to my breakfast bowls because it adds good fats, good nutrients, a creamy consistency and because they are always fresh and always delicious.
