Strawberry Rosemary Banana Ice Cream
(Makes just under one quart of ice cream.)
Ingredients
3 cups strawberries, diced 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon lemon juice
3-4 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (or several sprigs fresh rosemary) + extra to taste sugar to taste (optional) a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer, if needed

Directions
1. To make the strawberries: Combine the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium heat and then simmer on low until most of the juices have cooked away. Cover and chill in the fridge for several hours or more.
2. To make the ice cream: Place the bananas and chilled strawberry mix in the food processor and pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl. If necessary, add a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer to get things moving!
Alternately, you can allow the bananas to defrost on the counter top for 30 to 60 minutes beforehand, so that they’re easier to work with. Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a butter knife.
Note: Since introducing extra liquids (such as non-dairy milk) into the mix results in a slightly icier finished product, I prefer defrosting to non-dairy milk. If you’re in a hurry, pop the bananas in the microwave for 20 to 45 seconds instead.
3. If the bananas aren’t sweet enough for your taste (sometimes this happens if you freeze them before they’re sufficiently ripe), add a bit of sugar to taste. Any sugar works fine – white, brown, etc. – but I find that powdered sugar results in a smoother blend.
4. Add the rosemary and pulse until blended. Sample the batter and add extra rosemary to taste.
5. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container. Enjoy immediately as soft serve, or pop the ice cream in the freezer for an hour+ for a firmer dessert. Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, microwave it for ten seconds to help loosen it up (or let the container sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to eating, depending on room temp).

Make A Bee Waterer And Help Hydrate Our Pollinators


Imagine how hard just one bee works in a single day. Bees tend to at least 2,000 flowers daily, with tiny wings beating 10,000 times per minute, carrying pollen, and dramatically assisting our food supply.
Sound exhausting? Bees get thirsty, and they need safe water sources. The problem is water is not always available.Bees need very shallow water to drink from. However, shallow water evaporates quickly. Birdbaths are not the best option as bees tend to drown if the water is not be shallow enough. As for river and lakes, bees risk their lives trying to get water in the presence of fishes, frogs, and other wildlife, not to mention the risk of being swept away in water currents.
To help hydrate our little pollinators, set up a water feeder by filling a pie pan with marbles and then water. The marbles give the bees a spot to land so that they don’t drown when they come to drink. No more drowned bees!

Do this for our little friends! The sweet babees need a drink too!
