DIY Strawberries & Cream Hair & Body Smoothie

Made with ingredients straight from the kitchen for natural nourishment all over.

A delicious creamy smoothie; but, for the hair and skin!

Summer is approaching, which means we want to let out natural hair down and show off our healthy glowing skin! This hair and body smoothie is perfect for treating winter dryness and reviving our natural glow! The best part is, just like a regualr smoothie this can be made with ingredients already in your kitchen. When making DIY treatments, the ingredients and measurements can be altered to treat YOUR HAIR & SKIN the way you like it!


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Fresh Aloe Vera – Aloe Vera is a miracle plant for the hair and skin! It soothes razor burn, bug bites, eczema, sunburn, dry skin, acne, dry skin, dry scalp, dry hair, split ends and much more! It’s the superstar of this smoothie for sure!
  • 1/2 cup of Coconut Cream ( I use Native Forest Brand) – Coconut cream acts as a natural moisturizer and conditioner.
  • 1/4 cup of Raw Honey – Honey is a natural humectant, meaning it draws in moisture from the environment. Long lasting moisturization paired with its ability to add shine makes honey a perfect addition to this smoothie!
  • 1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Olive or Coconut Oil – a good oil brings the benefits of conditioning and nourishing the hair & skin as well as sealing the hair strands & skin to lock in all this MOISTURE and LOVE.
  • 1/2 cup of Fresh Strawberries (about 4 small strawberries) – Strawberries are high in antioxidants and vitamin C which makes them good for boosting hair growth and glowing skin.

Instructions

  1. Wash & cut the outside leaf of the Aloe Vera on both ends and both sides.
  2. Then, cut as closely to the leaf as possible to retrieve only the clear Aloe Vera Gel from inside.
  3. Rinse and place the chunk of Aloe Vera Gel into a bowl of spring water for 20 minutes ( make sure the Aloe is completely submerged). This step is extremely important in order to remove the somewhat poisonous part of the plant called Aloe Latex (Yellow Liquid between the gel and the leaf) which can cause itching and extreme irritation to the skin !!!!
  4. Place all your ingredients into a blender & blend until you get a smoothie consistency.
  5. Hop in the shower, wash, & shampoo as usual.
  6. Apply the smoothie to CLEAN hair making sure to cover the hair from root to ends.
  7. Twist hair into two or more twist and cover hair with a plastic shower cap to trap the steam.
  8. Allow the smoothie to sit in your hair for around 10 minutes.
  9. While waiting proceed with shaving, a body scrub, dancing, singing or whatever you wish.
  10. About a minute before rinsing your hair, apply the smoothie onto the body and smooth into the skin.
  11. Rinse your hair and body very thoroughly making sure to get all of the smoothie out.
  12. Detangle hair whilst washing out the smoothie allowing the water and gravity to assist.
  13. OPTIONAL: If you have thin, fine, or straight hair you may need to do an extra shampoo to remove access moisture or simply reverse the steps by apply the smoothie first, then shampoo, and conditioner after. For my thick, long, curly, & kinky headed kings and queens a thorough rinse will suffice.
  14. Proceed with your regular hair and skin routine!

For my thick, long, and 3C/4A curly crown I proceeded to dry my hair with a microfiber cloth, massage my scalp with some castor oil, and apply a small amount of castor oil to my ends as well. I then moisturized my body and let my hair air dry for the remainder of the day!

This Smoothie made my hair and skin extremely soft and nourished. It left my wash and go hair so fluffy and bouncy yet deeply moisturized with a nice shine!

Vegan Snickers Ice Cream Bars

Snickers Ice Cream but on a different level

Fun fact I used to want to be a pastry chef before I decided to be a private chef. I always had a love for creating fire desserts since high school. Snicker bars were one of my favs growing up.

This is an intermediate/advanced recipe for my true culinarians. It may take a few attempts. But I promise you its worth it. You & your family & friends gonna go crazy over it.

Serving Size

Serves 6 people at 2 bars per person. Double the recipe for more servings.

1/3 cup of agave nectar

2/3 cup coconut milk

1 tsp of vanilla

2 cups of soaked raw cashews

For the Caramel Layer

3/4 cup of pitted medjool dates soaked in hot water

1/4 cup of coconut oil

1/2 tsp himalayan pink salt

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup of water

1/4 cup of roasted cashews

1/4 cup of tahini ( peanut butter or almond butter works fine)

For the Chocolate Layer

4 cups of dark chocolate melted

1/2 cup of coconut oil

Instructions

1. Soak cashews in hot water for 1 hour. Drain cashews & add to blender. Add coconut milk, agave, vanilla.

2. Blend for 5 mins until it has a smooth creamy consistency.

3. Pour ice cream until a loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Set aside in freezer.

4. Soak dates in hot water for 30 mins. Add the dates, coconut oil, vanilla, peanut butter, himalayan salt, water into blender. This is the caramel layer.

5. Blend the caramel until it is a creamy paste for 3-5 mins.

6. Spread the caramel evenly on top of the ice cream base.

7. Top the caramel layer with the roasted cashews.

8. Freeze the ice cream over night. 12 hours minimum, until it is solid.

9. Remove the ice cream from the parchment paper. Cut into 6 bars, then cut those 6 in half. You’ll have 12 bars.

10. Melt dark chocolate in a bowl & place the snicker bars on a cooling rack. Coat the bars on all sides with the chocolate. (Dipping the bars in the chocolate 1 by 1 helps as well.)

11. Plate up & sprinkle with cocoa powder for extra presentation, eat & enjoy! (These can last up to 2 weeks frozen. Store in a air tight container.)

This is the recipe I used to make these fire Snickers Ice Cream Bars. Super decadent & tasty. Add this to your weekly rotation!

Sol to Sol | Serving Self

“Who’s hands hold your trust? The source that gives us all life also gives us living proof to ground our faith in truth.”

We are experiencing an interesting time here on the planet in regards to consciousness. We all have individual devices where we can share information, knowledge, and our personal experience instantaneously across the globe. We have uncovered and shared more information in this digital age than we will even be able to process in our lifetime.  We’ve created a different type of access to the psyche and subconscious mind. 

The more we know how to play the game, the better we can play! Though with all this information, can one ever know too much? How do we determine what is serving our growth and what is perpetuating complacency? When does too much knowledge become unhealthy?

Previous results won’t determine the future outcome, but they do give us clues. Any knowledge we consume and don’t utilize is just like eating more food than our bodies need. Our minds cannot serve junk knowledge just like junk food doesn’t serve our bodies. This is key to our awareness as humans because of how much information there is out there for us to sort thru. We can actually waste years of our life paying attention to information that isn’t serving us or we can add years to our lives by focusing with intention.

The feminine flow of energy is ruling the way the masses relate to consumption. 

The mission of masculine energy is to develop and maintain a system of order for freedom to flow through fluidly. The mission of feminine energy is to explore all forms of intimacy within the experience of freedom. Feminine energy is ruling the collective perspective of consumption because we have been focused on the quality of appearance, entertainment, and excitement. People are more than okay with scrolling on their phones for hours, looking to light up their dopamine they’ve already exhausted. There is no moral standard or divine structure for us as a collective within consumption. This imbalance of the masculine/feminine approach to consumption has hijacked our attention. We’ve been programmed subconsciously to focus on material items and a fantasy digital world.

All of this outward reflection has illuminated personal introspection. Where your attention goes energy flows, so what am I really creating? How much do I believe in myself? How am I balancing my desire for intimacy and my desire for structured growth? Do I believe in the vision enough to be a faithful servant to it? 

My reality is only evolving at the rate I’m allowing it to. This is an honest way for someone to determine if what they’ve been consuming is actually serving their growth. With attention being our cosmic currency, we can pay for anything no matter the price. By simply focusing on our individual truth, we will receive the thoughts, ideas, and emotions that motivate us to take action towards that livity.

The greatest contrast can provide the greatest clarity. Reflecting on the collective’s flow of consumption has me analyzing how I’m spending my time and attention. I recently took on a 9 – 5 job, thinking this was the fastest and easiest way to pay for different living needs such as bills, gas, and groceries. It felt easy to hop right on board because of my appreciation for learning a new skill in the process. It wasn’t long before my deepest truth surfaced to the forefront of my mind; I am not meant to be exchanging all of my time and attention for such a small return. That type of exchange doesn’t serve the fulfillment of my desires nor my peace of mind. I know who I am and the value I provide to others. That same day I came to this realization, I had to let the job go in return for my active clarity. I am worth more than a timed exchange rate because the wisdom I’ve gained in my experience is priceless. Most people may feel perfectly aligned putting in that type of physical and mental labor, but it was my time to accept the truth.

What doesn’t serve you doesn’t deserve you. I had to fire my job to HIGHER my Self.

No matter what is common amongst others or what society has laid out for you, you must accept what is for you and what isn’t. You will undoubtedly experience the sorting of alignment throughout your lifetime in order to know exactly what is worth your time and energy. It will come in the form of people, places, and things. Friendships, jobs, romance… Any form of relationship holds potential for attachment based on the wants and needs of both energies involved. The faster we can consciously detach from what isn’t serving our precious personal energy, the easier it will be to redirect ones focus to a system of service that’s fulfilling to our soul.

Every person on the planet has a very special purpose, uniquely different from one another. The embodiment and fulfillment of your purpose is the reason why we’re here experiencing life in this realm. Can you imagine faithfully investing in something that pays you back less than what you put in? On top of taking away time you’ll never see again? This feels like either a new version of slavery or insanity if you ask me. One and the same.

The mainstream perspective of manifestation is transforming as we step out of the old paradigm. With the temperature in consciousness rising, all past systems of living are falling short to our expanded awareness of Self. People are loosing faith in the system they were raised in, yet in return they gain faith in their ability to procure their own desired result. Faith is a beautiful idea without action. Now that we can identify what is serving our conditioned minds vs our infinite soul, we can choose to make the right actions that reflect our faith. Who’s hands hold your trust? The source that gives us all life also gives us living proof to ground our faith in truth.

Serving your Self may appear as selfish to someone who doesn’t believe in their dreams the way you believe in yours. Don’t get it twisted though, it’s your divine birthright to follow your dreams full steam ahead. More than your birthright, its a necessity for your soul’s true contentment in this life.

Sol to Sol |Principles of Growth pt.2

“Most people don’t know what their genius is capable of because of how their environment has been controlled to limit their knowing and their belief in knowledge.”

Every day we are given two things, a chance and a choice. The magick of nature gave us another day to explore these gifts. This is another opportunity to change what we’re choosing for ourselves.

With the way the system is built, most of all our choices we make are suggested from the previous awareness of the conditioned mind. The conditions we’ve created within society have tainted the ways we choose what’s best for our individual selves. This day and age it’s so easy for a conditioned mind to remain docile and complacent in the face of truth. Most people don’t know what their genius is capable of because of how their environment has been controlled to limit their knowing and their belief in knowledge.

There’s no question about it, those who created our living environment seek to control our minds above all else. Any salesmen knows that if they have a customer convinced, they can bamboozle them for an eternity. It’s not until the customer ascertains what is best for their livelihood — without the suggested opinion of the salesmen — for them to experience the sovereign state of mind. The system that built these cities and living environments would be the salesmen in this example. They are selling us freedom on a leash that is bound by many different contracts we all were forcibly signed in to at birth. In exchange we pay them with our time and life force energy. To the conditioned mind, this is a beautiful exchange because there are so many amenities and attractions they’ve developed for us to enjoy within their system. But for all those reading between the lines, we find how our life isn’t worth living if we give it all up just to fuel someone else’s freedom.

Are we thriving in these systems they’ve built? Are “they” actually “us”, appearing as a lower consciousness in my mind? If they’ve lead past generations to believe their lies, am I going to perpetuate the same complacency?

These are some of the questions that come to mind when I began to travel upwards in consciousness. As I was making a conscious distinction between the systems that I’ve been serving vs the system that serves me best, my belief in community leaders dissolved in to thin air. I turned to all the different thought leaders in the world, seeking support for my internal uprising. I quickly realized how the mind operates within a spectrum of belief. Most leaders are focused on symptom management rather than the real solution. Everyone’s plan involved us continuing to live in the same ways that oppress us subconsciously. The leaders of the old paradigm still have the dollar on their mind. Everyone has a brand but not everyone has a plan.  Some people have stronger faith in what is unseen compared to others. Some people have more trust in the universal laws than in the laws of observed science. More and more people are unshackling the conditions that were placed on the subconscious mind through the conscious choices they make.

All the above is objective truth I’ve sifted and collected from my subjective experience. This is a simplified snapshot in to the understanding of the collective conscience. In the old paradigm, we limited ourselves from the way we saw Self and source. We are alive in the state of being we are in because of the beliefs we’ve practiced habitually and faithfully. Almost evert black man you ask wouldn’t admit or has yet to recognize how he is operating as a domesticated version of himself. The world of truth has been sleep for as long as the lies have been valued.

There is nothing new under the sun, yet this conscious uprising that’s happening on the planet feels very refreshing. Elevation feels familiar when you’re grounded in truth. It’s important to recognize how we are the generation of humanity that breaks every curse, bad habit, and conditioned trait that our lower mind tried to pass on to us. Generations of families were born in to the old paradigm. This consists of people being raised in an environment that doesn’t support their greatest well-being. With us now astrologically stepping in to this Aquarius age of information, we can research the details of everything around us. Through research, study, and experimentation, we can find solutions to any problem.

Now that we are aware of the ways we have been living in relation to source energy, we can now focus clearly on where we are headed. As much people that are still being brought directly in to the old paradigm state of mind, there is an exponential amount of people growing in awareness of the new paradigm. The vibration of awareness is amplified naturally because truth vibrates at a certain frequency. Clear the storage on your phone and now you can receive more messages, download more songs, and purchase more apps. This is the same for our body, mind, and soul. They are all their own vessels, while at the same time being aspects of the one vessel we call Self. As we empty all that we have stored up in our bodies (processed food), mind (junk knowledge), and soul (unhealthy energy), we can receive and resonate with truth at a much greater rate. 

Personally I am very excited to see my black brothers and sisters rise up in their knowledge of Self. Melanin is the soul of God. It is used for the amplification of source energy. It has been unconsciously abused in society simply by the way we commune with source as melanated beings. The way we use our life force energy and what we serve with our sacred energy is powered by the melanin within us. Now that we consciously seek better health with our livity, we will be using our god body to activate this upliftment across the globe. Coming together, using our brilliant soul essence to create a sustainable world for all of us to thrive in. This is where we are headed. This is what we are creating.
