The Halo Top Movement


Ok, where do I begin...

Last time I posted about Halo Top, I mentioned how the texture was terrible and the flavor was weak. It left a bad taste in my mouth - pun intended - and I was ready to write it off completely until I tried mixing it into my smoothie. I found a way to make it work, but for a $5 pint of ice cream, I shouldn't have to find a way to make it work. It should just work, straight from the container.

Still, more and more people continue to rave about it. My bad review was really the only one I could find, which made me think maybe I needed to try another flavor. 

So, I tried two.

recipes i've tried and modified


I'm playing around with a new series here that's all about the recipes I've tried and modified and how they turned out, but I need to remember to snap a photo of the finished product before digging into my meal. I've included a list at the bottom of this post of meals that will likely get their own feature here in the near future, because I love sharing a good recipe.

Today, however, I just sharing a few food pictures in my phone. The greens theme continues, for the most part.

There are some vacations made for letting go of yourself and others are made for finding yourself again; this vacation was made for both.

I've had rolled ice cream on my foodie to-try list for a few months now. This weekend, I made it happen.

May I present... the process, in succession, in photos:
