This is the third part of a three part series about keeping your meals simple to make grocery shopping, meal prepping and eating healthy quicker and easier. Click the links and you can read part 1, breakfast and part 2, lunch and dinner. This week we will talk about dessert!
Yes! I haven’t forgotten about dessert! I do love it and my weakness is ice cream, so I will enjoy this healthy version a few times a week.
Frozen banana “soft serve”
For this recipe you will need a food processor or a high powered blender. Slice up a very ripe banana and freeze the slices until completely frozen. This takes at least 4 hours, so I always keep some in my freezer in case of emergencies! When you are ready to make your treat, take the frozen slices out of the freezer and let them sit on the counter for 2-3 minutes. Then throw them in the food processor and blend until they become the consistency of soft serve ice cream! It’s delicious just like this, or you can add in any if the following:
Peanut butter or other nut butters
Sugar free jam
Or whatever else your heart desires!
This is another mix and match recipe with almost endless possibilities. Start with the base and then choose your add ins.
8 dates OR 8 dried apricots – pitted and soaked in warm water for 10 minutes
1 cup nuts of choice – chopped fine in a food processor
Other Healthy Stuff to Include
Maca root powder
Mix everything together in a food processor. It should be thick but not sticky. Roll your mixture into balls and then roll in your choice of the following.
Unsweetened shredded coconut
Then freeze and enjoy when a sweets craving hits!
I hope this series has given you some ideas for simple ways you can create healthy meals to help you reach your goals. Now go practice your skills in the kitchen and have some fun experimenting! I’d love to hear how it goes and what you come up with!
