I am the first to admit that frozen dairy products are a weakness of mine. Especially if they start with a Coldstone and end with a Creamery. And even more especially if they are homemade by my dad, brother, or mother-in-law. This is why I had to move across the country. Because I have no self control.
Anywho, thanks to Pinterest, I can now have my ice cream and eat it, too. And not feel one single bit guilty. See, I discovered this pin (exhibit A in the trial where I prove that I actually intend to do things with my pins):
See where it says 1 banana + 2 tbsp cocoa? I decided if it really was that simple, it must be tried.
After all, do you know what two flavors of ice cream I mix together every single time I visit Coldstone Creamery? That’s right, chocolate and banana.
Because no one in my family will eat a banana that has a hint of brown on it, I always have bananas peeled and frozen in my freezer. I used to use them for smoothies. Now I use them for “ice cream”.
It really is simple: I throw a large frozen banana into my blender, along with 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Then I blend.
If the mixture looks crumbly instead of creamy, I add a little bit of soy, almond, or skim milk and continue blending.
It really is creamy and flavorful and delicious. Just like ice cream. Bionic Man thinks I am a little crazy, and he eyes my fake ice cream with some suspicion.
What tricks do you have to fool yourself into healthy eating?
