See you soon!


Hi friends,

You might have noticed that posts have been a little scarce lately! I definitely have not forgotten about this little blog, but I am working on a lot of things behind the scenes over here.

Remember when I said that things would be changing around here? Well I am working on all of those changes, and I am happy to say that in a few weeks I will be unveiling a new site for this blog! I am really excited about the changes that are coming, and I hope you are too!

I appreciate your patience over the next few weeks while I work on redesigning the blog and starting up some new and exciting things for you.

In the meantime, while you’re waiting for the new and improved site, feel free to follow along on Instagram: @joyfulandwhole

Until next time,



Cherry Icecream Recipe to Celebrate the Last Glimpse of Summer

Can you believe it’s September already?! I am amazed at how quickly this summer has gone by. I know that fall doesn’t officially start until September 21, but having been a student for so long, in my eyes, fall starts right after labour day.

I absolutely love fall – it’s my favourite season, but I also love summer and am trying to enjoy the last little bit that’s left before I say goodbye to my summer favourites: hanging out by the pool, sandals, and icecream! You already know I love icecream, and I shared this chocolate icecream recipe with you – but this cherry icecream is even better.

So, in celebration of the last glimpse of summer I will share my favourite “icecream” recipe with you.

Cherry Icecream


  • 1.5 cups frozen cherries
  • 2 small scoops protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ cup almond milk

Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor.

Just a warning: I usually don’t measure the ingredients for the ice-cream, and I just experiment with the ingredients until I get the desired consistency, so the measurements are approximate.

Alright friends, enjoy this icecream and soak up the last little bit of summer, then let’s jump in to fall!

Until next time,
