Frozen Yogurt Banana Truffles

24 Jan

Hey all.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a long time. It’s hard to run a food blog when I’m not much of a cook. -_- I want to be able to cook better, I think I’m just more interested in nutrition. But me posting about health isn’t as exciting as posting pretty food pictures 😉

But here is something I just thought of today! They’re currently nestled in my freezer so we’ll have to experiment together on how good they’ll be, but I did try one and though it was really good and couldn’t wait to share! These are a fun little treat for yourself, or could part of your breakfast.

mmmmm…. bananananananaaaa

Not much of a technique, just dip pieces of banana into a container of yogurt of your choice and spread on a piece of foil to pop in the freezer. I added cinnamon, nutmeg and Stevia to my yogurt, and topped them with shredded almonds, cacao nibs and coconut flakes. I love me some sweet.

Enjoy!

Shamrock Shake

This is my take on the #1 rated smoothie in all of LA by Sun Cafe. (And I like mine better) 😉

I’d save this for dessert. Long ingredient list but don’t worry, it’s easy and quick to make. You can leave out or substitute some ingredients and you’ll be fine.

Ingredients (serving for one):

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 carrot, shredded
  • 1/4 c non dairy milk
  • 1/4 c almonds or cashews
  • 1/8 c cacao nibs
  • 1 tbs chia or flax seeds
  • 1 date or sweetener of choice
  • mint leaves (optional)
  • shredded coconut for top

Blend up the nuts and seeds first, then add the rest. The result is thick, creamy and delicious. Beware, it’s addicting!
