So HURRY! TAG YOURSELF or SHARE THIS so you can keep these recipes handy! :-)
First, though, have you ever made ice cream from frozen bananas? If not, you are depriving yourself of an awesome treat. You can essentially dress this recipe up any way you want, with pretty much any flavors you like. You don't get a strong banana flavor, unless you make banana ice cream. You can get a Yonana Maker, which is a pretty handy tool to have, or you can even do it in your food processor. Every time you have some overripe bananas, just peel them, lay them out on a plate or cookie sheet and freeze. Once they are frozen, throw them into an airtight container and keep them in the freezer until you are ready for them. So easy to just take out as many bananas as you need. I can even buy overripe bananas at the grocery store for a discounted price. As long as the peels aren't slimy, I'm in! (I am.. um... frugal like that!)
Banana Berry Ice Cream
2 bananas, frozen
1 oz. dark chocolate
3/4 cup frozen mixed berries
Whiz the ingredients together in your food processor or Yonanas maker. Done. Keep leftovers (if there are any!) in the freezer.
Mudslide Fudge Cookies (grain free)
Not very many ingredients, and you likely have them in your house. Where it says raw honey, I actually just use whatever honey I have. It's up to you whether the ingredients need to be organic.
Chunky Chocolate Cookies
Don't eat these right away.... allow them to set up after they come out of the oven so they aren't as crumbly.
Cinnamon Raisin Braids
These take a little more time, but mostly to give the dough time to raise. The real ease comes when you make the dough and freeze some of it for use later! I personally can't wait and have to make them all at once. These are so good, your family will not know they are eating healthy!
MR's Famous Peach Cobbler
My husband truly makes the world's greatest peach cobbler. Just because we changed to a clean eating lifestyle, was no reason to give it up! I was eating, cleaned up or not! When peach season rolled around this year, has attempted to clean it up. And came up with TWO awesome wins! You can follow the directions at the link, or you can sub 1/2 cup of honey for the coconut sugar. Either way works just fine. This stuff is especially good eaten warm with a little almond milk over it... or maybe make some banana berry ice cream (above) and serve it with it. Also, you can throw in a handful of blueberries with the peaches!!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabars
I love larabars for a snack or a treat. There are multiple ways to make them. This recipe is a good one, but http://mywholefoodlife.com/ has lots of other ones too. Check them out!
So now... do you really want to make a dessert that starts with a cake mix?! Not when there are so many better options around!!!! Go ahead, enjoy!!!!
