KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

Creamy Coconut Tropical Fruit Salad


I love to use canned coconut milk for cooking, especially whenever I need to make something dairy-free. I use both the regular coconut milk in a carton as well as the canned coconut milk. Canned coconut milk is perfect for desserts, because you can scoop the creamy layer off the top and just use that in a recipe. While it's great as a fruit salad, this is also a great dessert replacement. If you let it sit in the fridge overnight, the sweetness from the fresh pineapple mixes with the semi-sweet coconut cream, and it's absolutely perfect without any added sugars. It's the perfect go-to if you're craving ice cream. In fact, you could use this same recipe in a popsicle mold for a guilt-free frozen treat. Use what you have on hand. If you don't have mangoes, add in two more bananas instead, or try it with other tropical fruits like papaya.

INGREDIENTS
  • one 14 oz. can unsweetened coconut milk
  • one fresh pineapple
  • two fresh mangos
  • 3 bananas 
  • 1 cup organic unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Peel and chop the fruit into bite-size pieces.
  2. Add the coconut milk (just the thick cream part off the top. Don't use the liquid in the bottom of the can.) *You may want to buy a few cans just in case. Sometimes during handling, the coconut milk blends together. If it isn't still separated, you won't be able to scoop the cream off the top.
  3. Combine in a medium size bowl, cover and refrigerate at least an hour. (Will thicken.)

  1. Ooooh, this just sounds like a burst of sunshine!

    I get the winter blues and often eat mood foods like pineapple and mango during the winter months. This looks like a great recipe for me to incorporate into my winter menu!

    Thanks for sharing.
