If you’re a fan of sweet caramel and creamy vanilla nice cream, this bowl is for you! It’s decadent, delicious, and good for you!
Dessert can be the ultimate trickery. It beckons us to enjoy it and then kicks us with regret later. Whaaaaa just happened?!
That was my love-hate relationship with traditional dairy & sugar laden desserts; always bewildered – “..but why don’t you love me back?”
Throughout the year I’d get “serious” and do some diet, break myself at the gym to fit in to my skinny jeans, and defer the enjoyment of delicious foods to “cheat days.” Can you relate?
It never made sense to me that the foods we love and crave could do us so wrong. Maybe not at first, but sneakily, as time passes on — our dietary lifestyle choices define our shape, stamina, energy, and health. That’s a cycle I wanted to break as soon as I knew how.
It can be overwhelming at first, but it doesn’t have to be. Simple swaps can wean us off bad habits and make the transition smooth so we don’t feel deprived of the foods we crave. “Now that’s what I’m talking about!”
This blog is all about my simple swaps. Things I love to eat that are actually healthy and delicious. Win win! My caramel nice cream is just one more favorite to add to the list.
Here’s my recipe:
- 4 large bananas, sliced and frozen
- 1 Tablespoon Tocos powder
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla powder
- 1 teaspoon Maca powder
- 1 teaspoon Mesquite powder
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup almond milk (or enough to blend)
Add ingredients to a high powered blender (this is the one I use). Blend until smooth. Serve in your favorite bowl garnished with whatever you like. I used crunchy cacao nibs, coconut flakes, nana slices, and my homemade caramel sauce. Enjoy!
Eat to your health my friends. And if you find yourself overwhelmed with the changes you want to make but aren’t sure how — I’d be happy to help. Comment below and we’ll figure it out together!
