Looking for Sustainability ideas

I thought I find a way to keep costs down while still trying to stay eco-friendly. Trying to keep striving for sustainability. This a record of that journey.

Sometimes blunt and straight forward then sometimes sarcastic

I just got a ice cream maker at my local Target for a song! So I made some Strawberry sorbet.

The recipe as in the ice cream maker booklet (hey I googled ice cream machine recipes and found this same recipe over and over!!)

Strawberry Sorbet

2 2/3 cups  strawberries, pureed
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and
simmer until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool completely (1– 2 hours).
Combine with pureed strawberries and lemon juice.
Pour into canister and freeze .

I thought I might make some and freeze it in the popsicle mold.  But when it came out if the machine it wasn't very solid, kinda soft.  Very yummy but soft.... next day after I put the left overs in the freezer it was solid.  Guess I did find a homemade frozen fruit bar!! LOL! Mine will not have all those preservatives and artificial coloring.  Just fruit and  water.  You can also use juice for the sugar water. Add more or less to the taste of the fruit.  The sweeter the fruit the less the sugar!

Plus I have been making more and more smoothies.  Sometimes make too much.  I got the idea to freeze them in the popsicle mold.... That has become my "dessert" after work... Yea one got a little too stubborn and stayed in the mold.... that's ok it will be the last one eaten!! Rawww!   I also have frozen my left over milk shakes.... very yummy!!

Next is gelato!!
