Lip Balm and Chocolate Mousse

My new favorite lip stuff
I do not have an addictive personality, however, I do tend to go a bit overboard with somethings. One of my obsessions is lip balm, or more specifically, frosty colored lip balm. For a long time, I have loved Burt’s Bees which is not vegan for obvious and not obvious reasons. The obvious is the bee’s wax, the not so obvious is the coloring carmine. Carmine is made from crushed red beetles, yuck.
Anyway, I have found my new favorite. Hibiskiss by Crazy Rumors, crazyrumors.com. this was given to me by my fellow lip balm addict and dear friend, Diana. It smells amazing, and tastes good too! They also have a line of tea, coffee, soda, and candy inspired ones, all organic, cruelty-free and vegan. I like the Hibiskiss line because it is frosty!


My new favorite decadent dessert
Chocolate Mousse
Soooooo easy and incredibly delicious. Take 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips and melt them in the micro for 2 minutes or over a double broiler. Put in a blender with 8 ounces silken lite tofu and a 1/4 cup of organic powdered sugar. Blend on high until light and fluffy. Refrigerate for an hour or so and serve with fresh raspberries.
