New Healthy Dessert Recipe

Here's a recipe for one of my favorite quick and easy healthy desserts... it tastes like delicious ice cream but is much better for you. It's much lower in calories than typical desserts like cakes or pies, and is also loaded with vitamins and antioxidants.

Here's what I do to make this:

1. Break up 1 to 1.5 ripe bananas into chunks and put into a zip lock bag into the freezer. I usually break up 3 bananas into each ziplock bag and then use half the bag for each time I need them.

2. Whenever you want a delicious frozen dessert with ice cream texture, take the bag of frozen banana chunks out and into a blender or food processor (fyi - this type of ice cream blending never worked for me until I got a really good blender...some blenders just don't cut it for this).

3. Add just a touch of vanilla extract, a couple tablespoons of milk, 1 or 2 teaspoons of organic cocoa powder, 1 or 2 teaspoons of your favorite protein powder, a touch of stevia (if extra sweetness is needed), and possibly a spoonful of peanut butter or almond butter if you desire.

4. Blend the mixture until it becomes the consistency of ice cream (similar to making a smoothie, except since you use less total liquid, it stays more as ice cream consistency). You may need to add a little more milk to get it to blend fully to the right consistency.

You can even top this off with some berries and chopped walnuts or pecans for an extra dose of nutrition and healthy fats that'll do your body good!

Enjoy!

You can also try to use a different frozen fruit instead of the frozen bananas if you want to experiment with different flavors. Frozen strawberries may work well. I happen to like the bananas best because it makes a creamier texture and bananas go great with cocoa and peanut butter!

Feel free to fwd this email and share this healthy dessert recipe with your friends and family that would enjoy it.
