Cool Slim Treats

My husband and I took a movie to the park to watch on his new laptop this afternoon. His battery is AMAZING! Mine had gotten to the point where it will go maybe 5 minutes before it gives a warning and goes to sleep! It was so nice to get out of the house and relax! But after a while boy did it get hot when the sun shifted and we started baking! I have some super convenient and delicious frozen treats that are a healthy and slimming alternative to traditional ones to keep you cool and feeling fabulous!


This heavenly sweet treat is created from nature's bounty that has been frozen or in the above picture mostly frozen. In the bowl above are the following fruits: peach on bottom, frozen blueberries, and raspberries on top (who can resist a good raspberry sale!? Not me!!) Drizzle with agave or honey and cream- I prefer almond milk cream as it is lower in calories but whatever your fancy it will still make your frozen fruit into an ice cream dream. -note-- Frozen grapes are amazing. They are a great substitute for any sort of sugar you may put in smoothies in addition to making it all frozen creaminess.

Super Green Mint Chocolate Drizzle Banana Ice Cream

Long name for a super healthy version of mint chocolate chip ice cream. This recipe is very similar to a shake that I make all the time-- soo good!!

1 1/2 frozen bananas, sliced
1 tsp wheatgrass powder
3 pkts stevia
dash of agave
3 drops peppermint oil /extract

Place all ingredients, in order, into a small food processor or vitamix blender and process until smooth. Drizzle with chocolate sauce-- yum!!!

Chocolate sauce
2 heaping teaspoonfuls cocoa powder
1 pkt stevia or squirt of agave
2-3 tbsp coconut oil melted
Mix together. Taa Da!

Thanks for reading and keep cool!
