Banana Nice Cream with Healthified Reese’s Crumbles

Banana Nice Cream with Healthified Reese's Chunks 1

*Sitting here waiting for Vitamix to sponsor me because I basically only eat smoothie bowls and nice cream*

Seriously though. The healthy dessert combinations you can make with some frozen fruit and toppings are ENDLESS!!!! When I first became intolerant to dairy I immediately mourned the loss of ice cream (previously one of my all-time favorite foods) BUT now that I have my Vitamix (or any high-powered blender works), I think I like smoothie bowls and nice cream even more than real ice cream if that’s even possible!

Just think about it. You’ve made it to tonight. You had a delicious, healthy dinner. You’ve had a good day of exercise. You’re sitting on the couch watching Wild, Wild Country (okay so you’re probably not all watching what I’m watching on Netflix right now, but if you like documentaries I strongly recommend giving this one a try!). You’re craving dessert. Do you:

  1. Undo all your healthy progress from the day by giving in to ice cream and having a bowl full of cream and sugar that will cause all sorts of health problems for you ORRRRRRRRR
  2. Whip up a quick bowl of banana nice cream with Healthified Reese’s Crumbles on top?

Option 2 DUHHHHHHHHH!!! Nothing bad’s going to come to your body from a bowl of bananas, peanut butter, and dark chocolate. Nope. Nada. You’re actually going to get tons of vitamins and nutrients. Instead of having a heavy, crappy feeling in your stomach you’ll feel light as a feather and be ready to binge a million episodes!

So boycott the ice cream cravings and break out the blenders!!!! And enjoy your healthy guilt-free dessert.

Peanut Butter Banana Dark Chocolate Chip Nice Cream

This started off with a spur-of-the-moment, it’s international women’s day and you’re a kick-butt woman who deserves to TREAT HERSELF craving. I was feeling accomplished, had a job interview, went for a nice long run, and got everything I wanted to do accomplished that day so i was like “mmhmmm, peanut butter and dark chocolate time.”

You’ve probably noticed that’s one of my favorite combos because I make it ALL THE TIME, but who doesn’t? It’s freakin’ TASTY. So I threw a bunch of stuff I like in a blender and magic came out. I wasn’t expecting it to be such a hit (although I should have because it was so delicious the world deserved to know about it), but due to popular demand I have re-created my magic from the other night (I actually measured ingredients this time for you guys) and will now share the recipe.

One of my favorite things about this recipe is while it tastes unbelievable, I don’t feel guilty eating it like I would with most desserts. It’s all natural, refined sugar free, gluten-free, plant-based, and dairy-free. What could be better? No tummy troubles, no “okay, gotta work out extra hard tomorrow” regret, just happiness. And everyone deserves happiness. So start your engines, ladies and gents, and when I say engines I mean blenders, because you’re about to TREAT YOSELF! WOOOOOOO!
