And if you need another great reason to make this recipe…it’s about half the cost of buying a container of Nesquick at the store!! So, make sure to keep a batch of this on hand! This wholesome, chocolatey treat is something you can feel good about, when serving to the family!

Ok, are you ready? This is going to be super simple…you’re going to love it! The only 3 ingredients you will need for this DIY Nesquik Recipe are 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 2/3 cup of sugar, and just a pinch of salt. That’s IT!

Just combine all ingredients in an air tight jar (I used a ball jar) and shake it until everything is mixed together well.

That’s really it! Easy peasey!! I used a pint sized ball jar and it filled it about 1/2 full…plenty of room if you would like to double the batch. My kids love this stuff so much, I’ve been known to even triple the recipe!

When you are ready to make a glass of chocolate milk. Just add 2 Tablespoons of the mix to a glass and about 2 Tablespoons of warm water…I know this part seems a little strange, but when you are using natural cocoa powder it won’t fully dissolve in a glass of cold milk. And no body likes chunky chocolate milk…well, no one I know anyway. By using warm water first the mix should fully dissolve and make a perfectly smooth glass of delight! Then you just add 1 cup of cold milk and stir.

The BEST All Natural Deodorant

This all natural deodorant is the best! A great alternative to the traditional toxic deodorants on the market. - happymoneysaver.com

 

A few years ago I went on a beauty detox. I took a long, hard look at all of the different products I was using and made a list of the ingredients and toxins I was putting ON or IN my body. The results we sobering to say the least.

Parabens! Synthetic colors! Fragrance! Phthalates! Triclosan! Formaldehyde! Toluene! Propylene glycol!

Parabens are preservatives that prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and yeast in cosmetic products. We like preservatives, right? But they do more harm than good. Parabens have estrogen-mimicking properties that are associated with increased risk of breast cancer. These chemicals are absorbed through the skin and have been identified in biopsy samples from breast tumors. They can be found in body washes, deodorants, shampoos, facial cleansers and makeup.

Triclosan is an antimicrobial chemical that’s a known endocrine disruptor…especially thyroid and reproductive hormones. Triclosan can be found in toothpastes, antibacterial soaps and deodorants.

Are you scared yet? You should be! But don’t be overwhelmed…I’m here to help!

best all natural deodorant

I started out small. Eliminating one or two products at a time as I found all natural replacements for them. Deodorant was the FIRST thing to go…and after spending $14 (crazy, right!?) on ONE tube, I decided to make my own. This is the BEST natural deodorant recipe. It’s easy, effective and makes my underarms soft and smooth!

BEST All Natural Deodorant Recipe

Here’s what you need:

1/4 cup baking soda
1/3 cup arrowroot (can substitute with cornstarch)
3-5 tablespoons coconut oil
15 drops desired essential oil
2 empty deodorant containers

This all natural deodorant is the best! A great alternative to the traditional toxic deodorants on the market. - happymoneysaver.com

Directions:

1. Combine baking soda, arrowroot, and essential oil in a bowl.

2. Combine coconut oil with other ingredients until mixture is at the desired consistency. I use a pastry cutter at first, then knead it with my hands.

3. Press firmly into an empty deodorant container and let sit until the coconut oil solidifies. You can put it in the refrigerator, to speed up this process!

This all natural deodorant is the best! A great alternative to the traditional toxic deodorants on the market. - happymoneysaver.com

That’s all there is to it! Some of the essential oils I have tried when making the best natural deodorant are; Lavender, Melaleuca, Geranium, Lemongrass and Purify. I use Cedarwood for my husband and he loves it!

is it worth is file plain graphic

1/4 C Baking Soda = $.94
1/3 C Arrowroot = $1.24
3-5 Tablespoons Coconut Oil = $1.50
15 drops essential oil = $1.35
Deodorant container= $1.38

Total Cost: $6.41 (for two sticks) or $3.20 (for one)

Lavanila sells their all natural deodorant for about $14, so my diy version saves you $10.80, that’s over 70% cheaper! And the best part, our version comes toxin free. Since it takes basically no time at all to make, and I can control the ingredients I’m using…I would say it’s definitely WORTH IT!

TIP: When working with coconut oil, remember that whether refined or virgin, it has a melting point of around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. It will be liquid above that temperature, but solid below that. Store your deodorant in a cool place, and if you live in a warmer climate try the fridge!

California Club Pasta Salad- A Simple Pasta Salad Recipe

California Club Pasta Salad - a simple pasta salad recipe and new take on a classic sandwich! | happymoneysaver.com

I love a good pasta salad.

Especially in the summertime, when it’s brutally hot and humid out, and the last thing I’m thinking of is turning on my oven.

In the end, no matter the weather, I still have a family to feed, and what I make them has to be full of protein, carbs for energy, good fats, and all that other stuff that makes them develop and grow and stuff.

This simple pasta salad recipe came to me after eating an amazing sandwich a few weeks ago. I don’t know how or why the idea to turn a sandwich into a pasta salad popped in my head, but I rolled with it. And man, am I glad I did!

California Club Pasta Salad - California Club Pasta Salad - a simple pasta salad recipe and new take on a classic sandwich! | happymoneysaver.com

This California Club Pasta Salad has made me a hero in my home!

California Club Pasta Salad - California Club Pasta Salad - a simple pasta salad recipe and new take on a classic sandwich! | happymoneysaver.com

It’s ridiculously simple to throw together – crumble some bacon, chop some veggies, cube some cheese. The most labor intensive part is shredding the rotisserie chicken.

Unless you count carrying the pasta pot to the sink to drain it as hard.

It’s completely no-cook, also (aside from the pasta), unless you roast your own chicken. I usually just pick one up from my local deli this time of year. The less I can heat up my house, the better.

California Club Pasta Salad - California Club Pasta Salad - a simple pasta salad recipe and new take on a classic sandwich! | happymoneysaver.com

Bring it all together in a big bowl, toss in some of the best darn ranch dressing on the planet, season it with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder (if you want to – it’s just as nice without!), and in 30 minutes, I can have this beautiful California Club Pasta Salad on the table and ready to devour. 30 MINUTES. That leaves me plenty of time to get more done around the house.

And if you know me, you know what that schedule is like! You know that I love my freezer meals for freeing me up, and I love this salad just as much!

It’s a keeper!
