Live a Little Monday - Shake It Up

It's Time Live a Little and Shake It Up Organically!
It's Time Live a Little and Shake It Up Organically!
It seems like these days everyone is trying to eat better and lose a few pounds.  Some succeed by depriving themselves of everything yummy, while others, like me, Go Green and Get Fit while snacking along the way.  Really it is whatever works for each of us but for those days when you really need something sweet, I have a totally organic way to shake it up.

All you need is:
  1. Organic vanilla ice cream - I like Publix brand but anything will do as long as it is organic which means it is free of artificial dyes and flavors and comes from cows that were not given bovine growth hormone.
  2. Organic Oreo type cookies - For our family there is only one brand that we love for more than one reason.  We love Newman's Own because they are tasty and all proceeds go to charity.
  3. Organic fat free milk - Again any brand will work as long as it is organic and free of bovine growth hormone.
  4. Real organic vanilla extract 
Now comes the fun part!
Just take a few big scoops of ice cream, toss in about 5 or 6 Oreos, about a cup and a half of milk and a couple of drops of real vanilla extract and mix it all up.  Garnish with one more Oreo and enjoy.

Aside from being one of my favorite organic treats, when my girls are having a hard day or celebrating a great one, I always make one of these for them and they always feel special.


Live a Little with Us!
Live a Little with Us!
Each week I link up in the Live a Little Monday with my friend Katja and her Skimbaco community.  We offer up ideas on finding fulfillment in life, right now, through the little things and not so little things to make the most out of each and every day.  It's just one of the fun ways we celebrate finding the treasure in self, people and planet here at EB each week.  

Do you have a blog? We would love to have you link up and join us in this Live a Little weekly blog hop. It's really easy.  Sometime this week, write a post with tips about how you Live a Little then link up using the Linky below and get the code yourself to put on your blog.   If you would like to add a Live a Little banner, you can find those here.

P.S.- People always ask me where I get my organic food and personal care products and I love to tell them about The Green PolkaDot Box! Backed by the Organic Consumer's Association and, you can easily buy NonGMO organic groceries, including Harvest Fresh Organic produce, at wholesale pricing online.  It's like a Sam's club but focused on products for green, healthy living! You can even shop by dietary restrictions like gluten free, vegan or diabetic and it all comes right to your front door. Enjoy!
