My Favorite DIY Posts

Since I’m still on vacation, I thought that instead of a new DIY post I would share some of my favorites so you can get in on the DIY action.  These are a few of the things that I constantly make so that I always have them on hand.  They’re quick, easy, and most of all save  me money since I don’t have to buy them at the store!

Coconut MilkMy Favorite DIY Posts | Life Healthfully Lived

Seriously, I can’t stop making this and why should I?  It’s cheap, the easiest non-dairy milk to make, and doesn’t have the additives that most store bought coconut milk contains. You also don’t need a high-speed blender and can even use an immersion blender to get awesome results.  My coconut milk has been making its way into curries, my coffee, and my morning smoothie bowl.  Speaking of which….

Smoothie Bowls

Now that it’s starting to get warm, smoothie bowls are hitting the spot.  You can make them with your favorite ingredients and get your daily fruit and vegetables.  Here’s a simple guide to building a smoothie bowl.

Lemon-Ginger TeaMy Favorite DIY Posts | Life Healthfully Lived

I have this every morning and I love it.  Since I’m not a huge fan of plain water, this is a great way to get some water first thing in the morning without choking down a glass of plain water.  Plus it’s good for your digestion and your skin!

Dairy-Free Ranch and Basil Dressing

Summer means more salads and fresh vegetables and what better way to eat them than with delicious dressing?! As much as I love my vegetables, I love my dressing even more.  Don’t buy dressing at the store because not only is it more expensive but it can quickly turn your healthy salad into a calorie and chemical bomb.  Whip up one of these dressings yourself and thank me later!


Caramelized OnionsMy Favorite DIY Posts | Life Healthfully Lived

This is the definition of an easy recipe.  Your slow cooker does most all of the work and you end up with delicious caramelized onions that you can put in everything.  I freeze the onions in ice cube trays and then just pull out what I need when I’m making dinner.

Coconut ChipsMy Favorite DIY Posts | Life Healthfully Lived

These are the best snack ever.  A little sweet, a little savory, and all delicious.  I actually made a huge batch of these before we left for Michigan because they make a great road trip snacks.  I may have even shared a few with Adam… Maybe.
