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!

Raspberry Lemonade Sorbet

17 Jul

Want an easy, low calorie night-time snack?

Try simply turning this……

into this….

It’s tangy, its sweet, it’s everything you love about summer and will definitely help beat the heat! And may I add, extremely simple to prepare and make.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup lemonade (I used a low calorie version from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup raspberries (or any kind of berries)
  • sprinkle of sweetener (I used stevia)

Blend those ingredients a few hours before you want to eat it and put it in an ice cube tray to freeze. Pop it out and blend the frozen cubes in your blender. If yours can’t handle it (like mine) add a small chunk of watermelon or some fresh raspberries to help it blend. ~viola~! enjoy 🙂
