Sweet Cherry Avocado Ice Cream & Peanut Butter Avocado Ice Cream

Let’s talk about this issue I have with our rental house.

(You probably thought I was going to say I had an issue with my chipped nail polish. Sadly…No.)

So for some reason, our precious little rental has carpet in the kitchen/dinning room. Fine. Whatever.

Unfortunately I have this one year old I like to call DESTRUCTABLE/DESTROY EVERYTHING IN SIGHT/GET INTO EVERYTHING/THERE ARE STAINS EVERYWHERE BECAUSE OF …this one year old. For example, this morning  I was trying to fix our curtains that happened to fall and almost land on my head when I moved them. (Ahem. Husband.) As I was doing this, my one year old found my nail polish (the pretty chipped one I’m wearing), and thought she needed to paint her toes.

Now there are nail polish foot prints and stains through out the kitchen/dinning room carpet. It’s lovely. Right next to it is a blue paint stain that my three year old made. Then right next to that is my brown couch that has blue marker written all over the cushions. Like I said, lovely.

I highly doubt we will get our deposit back.

After living in our rental for over a year now, I finally decided food and art projects should probably take place out side. I know…I FINALLY decided that? What took so long Ari? Did my house have to look like a Crayola Box exploded before I did something?

Recently, I was sent these adorable girly bibs from JJ Cole to review, and the girls and I decided to make some ice cream and test them out. These bibs will soon be released at BuyBuyBaby.com, so look out for them! I figured the girls would eat the ice cream like they normally do, dripping everywhere/all over their face…But just my luck they ate the ice cream as clean as I’ve ever seen them. But I did love the bibs because they were wide enough to wear it covered all of their top. And any ice cream that did drip, I just wiped right off!

For the record, it took a good 10 minutes to stop the girls from fighting over the bib that had a little more pink than the others.

The ice cream the girls ate was avocado based, which is a great healthy fat for kids! (Great for brain growth!) It doesn’t have any avocado flavoring to it, so need to worry about a guacamole flavored ice cream :)! The mix ins are so versatile, you could pair it with almost anything. An added bonus is the creamy-ness that the avocado adds, which gives it the perfect ice cream texture!

Instructions
  1. The directions are the same for both ice creams.

I’m thinking I should probably pay someone to professionally clean my carpets, or I could just buy a cute rug to place over the top?

Or…I could just watch my kids more closely…

* A special thanks to Michelle for sending my girls and I these cute samples of JJCole bibs! I was not paid to write this review, just asked to express my opinion. These bibs will be available at BuyBuyBaby.com, so if you love them, check them out! Thanks again!*

  2. Love your site, it’s so happy and sweet! Plus you have really cute models who’s tiny hands make ice cream look even better! I’m totally into the idea of avocado in sweet dishes, so this I right up my alley.

  3. OOOH no!!! I’m so sorry! I would go for a super cute rug.. you can take the rug with you but then move it out of the way if needed. :) I love this ice cream recipe!! I got over the whole avocado in desserts awhile ago and now I think it’s a genius fruit to use!! It makes the most creamy base. These sound really delicious!
