Strawberry Nana Icecream


Living next to a strawberry farm definitely has it's benefits when you're as big of a strawberry lover as I am!! I was wanting some Ice Cream yesterday, so I whipped up Strawberry Nana Ice Cream and sprinkled some freeze dried pomegranate seeds on top. It did not disappoint!

Giving up unhealthy sweets and treats is one of the best things I've ever done. I am even more passionate about it now then what I was when I started a couple months ago! I'm loving making healthier alternatives that I don't have to feel guilty about! Life is so much happier when you're not feeling guilty all the time about eating bad foods, but instead feeling so good about yourself (physically and emotionally) about making GOOD decisions everyday. Another plus, is that I have this amazing outlet for creativity! There is creative joy in my in every day, as well as feeling great about #takingbackwhatsmine and getting my body back. This is one of the most exciting journeys I've ever been on, and I've never been so determined and driven about something like this before! 

Life is pretty great.

Made even greater by this sweet dessert yesterday.

INGREDIENTS

Ice Cream:
2 frozen Bananas
1 cup of frozen Strawberries
1/4 cup of Almond Milk
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract (optional)

Topping:
Freeze Dried Pomegranate Seeds

You will need a high speed blender or food processor of some sort to make this Ice Cream. I used my Optimum Blender.

Blend up the Ice Cream ingredients together until they're silky and smooth. Then spoon the Ice Cream out into your favourite jar and sprinkle with desired toppings.
Devour immediately!! Or if you like, pop into the freezer for later. By doing this, it will harden up a lot more. So it just depends how you like it best. Either way is super yummy.

With this warmer weather coming up, I have a feeling I'll be making a lot more of these 'cooler' treats!

  2. Hi. This sounds yum! When you freeze your bananas do you peel, cut them up and put in a zip lock bag? Or something different? And do you freeze when they are at yellow ripe stage or going a bit brown? Only starting to get into this so not sure whats best, thanks in advance. Carmen

    1. When I freeze bananas, I peel them and glad wrap them whole. Some people like to cut them up first, but I don't. A zip lock bag is a great option though! :)
