Summer is here and with it brings sweet treats of ice cold ice cream and popsicles to cool off from the summer heat! On a hot day you may find my eyes gazing towards the ice cream section with memories of refreshing sweet treats in the summer time. I'll check the ingredients and frown but remember I can make my own!
You won't need a lot of fancy equipment, not even an ice cream maker! Just a blender or a food processor and this dessert is a sweet possibility.
The secret? Frozen Bananas! My soul mate introduced me to these gems! I had never thought of freezing bananas and frankly didn't keep them around very much because they ripened so quickly. When I started dating Jerry he said his favorite meal to start the day with was a frozen shake with frozen bananas, mixed berries and protein. It sounded healthy enough, I gave it a try and have been HOOKED every since! At first it was hard on the weekends....no pancakes? Waffles? You really don't want a homemade breakfast? "Nope, just a shake" and soon it became a very healthy habit we continue to follow to this day meaning 99% of the time you'll find frozen banana gems in our freezer.
Simply break the banana into pieces. Opt to add mixed berries using a 1:1 ratio and enjoy a superb treat!
For a fun alternative pour mixture into a Popsicle mold, freeze and enjoy as a summer treat!
Enjoy this incredibly easy, minimalistic, raw, vegan, gluten-free dessert, snack and treat!
Lay back knowing it's made of fresh fruit bursting with:
I hope you enjoy this super fun and absolutely delicious treat bound to be enjoyed by all ages any time of the year!
Best wishes for a vibrant healthy and happy week!
PS - Aren't you loving the sunsets this time of year? Here is a picture from the other night. Not the best shot but look at that SKY!
