• Planter Makeover with Montana-Cans

    Choosing the right plant for your home is important, but you can't forget about the planter. Here's how you can use Montana-Cans to give your planter a personal touch that reflects your style.

    What you'll need:

    Montana Spray Paint
    Drop Cloth
    Masking Tape

    Step 1: Prep

    Lay out your drop cloth where you'll be spray painting. Use masking tape to create a design on the planterโ€“ wherever you tape will stay the original color.

    Step 2: Paint

    Keeping the can 6-8 inches from your planter, spray an even layer of paint. Allow to dry for at least 15 minutes before applying a second coat.

    Step 3: Dry

    For best results, allow the paint to dry before removing the tape. Otherwise the paint can smudge.

    Step 4: Plant

    Once the paint is totally dry, you can pot your plant!

    With just a few supplies from your neighborhood Orchard, you can create a one-of-a-kind planter that'll make other plants green with envy. Come by for everything you needโ€“ plants, paint, and friendly project advice!

  • Mint Chocolate Avocado Mousse

    Think outside the box with avocados – they can be used for other than making guacamole! Try putting avocados in your egg or chicken salad, spread it on toast, bake an egg in it, and even try it in your dessert.

    Did you know that when you blend an avocado, it has the perfect creaminess to be made into a mousse? I tried it, and it was decadent and delicious! Not to mention you’re getting the health benefits of the avocado as well. Avocados are loaded with fiber, heart healthy monounsaturated fats, and potassium. Enjoy a treat while nourishing your body for the holidays!

    Mint Chocolate Avocado Mousse

    Serves: 4

    • 1 Mint chocolate bar
    • ¼ Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 4 Very ripe avocados
    • ½ Cup agave nectar
    • ½ Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/3 Cup almond milk
    • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • Candy cane pieces, garnish


    1. Place the chocolate chips and mint chocolate bar in a double broiler, or a small bowl over a saucepan filled with about 2 inches boiling water.
    2. Stir the chocolate until it’s melted and smooth.
    3. Place the melted chocolate, avocados, agave, cocoa powder, almond milk, vanilla extract, and salt into a large bowl.
    4. Using a hand held mixer, blend with your mixer until smooth and creamy (make sure there are no chunks of avocado).
    5. Serve mousse in individual bowls or glasses and garnish with candy cane pieces  (I used a piping bag to pipe the mousse into glasses)
    6. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. Note: this recipe can be prepared one day in advance.
    7. Enjoy!
