A Guilt-Less Summer Treat

by Amie on May 26, 2010

It’s a simple homemade banana frozen ‘yogurt’ treat that’s a snap to make, inexpensive, dairy-free and gluten-free!  Banana’s are easy to purchase, soft and easy to chew and they’re packed with nutrients.  Banana’s are naturally sweet and contain vitamins C and A, magnesium and folate.  Moreover, they help reduce stress levels and increase serotonin levels.

One banana provides 422 mg of the 4,700 mg per day of potassium that the Institute of Medicine recommends for adults.  Yum, dig into this frozen banana ‘fro-yo’ for a tasty and refreshing Summertime Guilt-less Treat!

Ingredients

  • 1 large frozen banana, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 10 raw almonds, chopped
  • 1 tsp. raw cacao bliss
  • 2 Fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • Pinch of stevia
  • Topping: Cinnamon

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor; blend until smooth and fluffy (ice-cream consistency).
  2. Serve chilled; top with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  3. Enjoy!
