Halloween Costume Reveal 2016: Five Nights at Freddy's





We did another Whole 30, but this time, we did it with a twist. Our Whole 30 had a theme, and that was Hot 4 Halloween. We started on October 1st and went to the 30th, so that by Halloween, we'd be done and looking good, or at least better. The bonus was that we got to wear the Five Nights at Freddy's costumes that we worked so hard on! This is the final reveal of our costumes and hard work, but if you want to see us vlog about our Whole 30 journey, click here.

Paleo-fy This! Pumpkin Pie Spice Ice Cream





This recipe was fun to create. I was inspired while walking down the ice cream aisle in my local grocery store. Fall is always full of pumpkin spice everything, and the ice cream section was no different. Ice cream in the fall? Sure, why not? Especially when you live in Alabama, and it is still pretty hot outside. We made a caramel sauce to go on it, and it was fantastic! You can find Vanessa Barajas's caramel sauce recipe here.







Ingredients:

2 cans full fat coconut milk

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. ground cinnamon



Directions:

1. Add coconut milk, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and vanilla extract to a blender or food processor.



2. Run blender or food processor until blended.



3. Follow you ice cream maker instructions, or use the technique from the video.
