In this week's Newsletter we shared the not so sweet truth about sugar...
The bottom line is that too much sugar puts you at higher risk for heart disease, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, fatty liver disease and can even cause damage to the neurons in your brain.
This is probably enough to scare you away from something sweet, however, if your sweet tooth has a STRONG HOLD we also gave you some options on how to choose better options. One of those options was to make your own healthier ice cream!
INTRODUCING BANANA ICE CREAM!!!!
It is super simple to make and it gets that sweet tooth to CHILL out, plus with more fiber it will leave you feeling much more satisfied compared to its super sugary counterpart!
Banana Ice Cream
splash of milk of choice (we recommend almond or coconut)
optional: flavoring of choice (cinnamon, unsalted organic peanut butter, cocoa powder)
slice the banana into small pieces, freeze for at least 2 hours
place all ingredients in food processor and BLEND
GET A SPOON AND ENJOY!!!
You can really get create with the flavoring choice, just make sure you are not adding candy or other sugars which would defeat the mission for a healthier treat.
