Healthy Dessert Cheat...

I believe that we should all be able to enjoy some sweets once in a while. It's only healthy to be able to treat ourselves for eating well. If we don't reward ourselves then it can turn into unhealthy cravings followed by binging.

But, for those of you that are looking to lose weight and aren't wanting to break your healthy eating cycle here's the perfect recipe! It allows you to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings without feeling guilty about the extra calories...

Nut Butter - Banana Ice Cream!
...there is no added sugar, and you can customize this recipe in so many ways to suit your taste buds!

4 Ripe Bananas
2 Tablespoons (Almond) Butter
1/2 Cup (Almond) Milk
A Blender

- Slice the bananas and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours.

- Remove the bananas from the freezer and blend with the almond milk and peanut butter until you achieve a smooth consistency.

- You can eat it immediately or place it in the freezer to enjoy later!

*The entire batch makes 4-5 servings and averages around 700 calories...which makes it approximately 155 calories per 2 scoops (1 serving)!
*Using chocolate almond milk makes the recipe a little bit sweeter without adding many calories!
