Weekly Menu: July 14 + The Easiest Healthy “Ice Cream”

Dessert is always better before dinner.

Or after. Or, both. Moral of the story?Β Dessert wins.

So, before diving into the weekly menu, I want to share a favorite healthier dessert of mine! The Strawberry “Ice Cream” shown below is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth this summer without going all out every night. And, it’s super simple! Just blend together frozen bananas, vanilla almond milk, and strawberries (fresh or frozen). For two people, I usually use three frozen bananas, six strawberries and almond milk to taste (depending on desired texture/thickness).

Because of this “ice cream” and all of the smoothies I’ve been making lately, I always keep frozen bananas around! The key is to peel them BEFORE putting them in the freezer (I learned that lesson the hard way). It’s also a great way to save bananas for bread, etc. later.
