Fun and easy way to eat fresh fruit - in a coconut!
What you need: coconut & choice of fresh fruits
Directions
1. Crack open a coconut and empty it out. I put the coconut juice in a cup to enjoy later.
2. Chop up your choice of fresh fruits and place it inside the coconut
3. Voila, enjoy!


I made these ice cream pops at home with my sister, super easy to make!
What you need: ice cream cone mold (I purchased mine from amazon), fresh strawberry, banana, almond milk, and yogurt
Directions
1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and put it in the mold and freeze overnight
2. Take it out from the freezer and run the mold under water for about 5-10 seconds to help the pop come out without breaking
3. Enjoy!


I was homesick while staying in New York for a couple of weeks, and am so happy to be back home. I love New York but I grew up and live in a suburban neighborhood where I can drive around and have my personal space (I'm a bit claustrophobic). Lately I've been trying out new food recipes at home and spending time with my sister. We both love flowers and to me, flowers are a little reminder of home and home is where the heart is. One handy tip I learned overtime is to re-cut the stems every 2-3 days to keep flowers fresh and helps lengthen the life of the flowers.




Love, Sharon
