The Alternative: Healthy Strawberry Ice Cream

Who loves strawberry ice cream? I do! However most strawberry ice cream is about 140 calories per .5 cup, with 16 g of sugar,  7 g of fat and 4.5 g of saturated fat.  Now I don’t know about you but I want a lot more than just .5 cup of ice cream. My favorite app Fooducate scores the ice cream at a  B-. Not so bad right? But lets dig a little deeper into the specifics. Realize that in reality you’re eating 4 tsp of sugar PER SERVING and those saturated fats you’re happily indulging are responsible for that high cholesterol your trying to lower. So below I will show you a recipe that taste just as good, but fresher, with less calories of course!

OK, this will take 5 mins. NO LIE!

STEP ONE: Freeze one whole banana

STEP TWO: Cut frozen banana into 10 slices and put slices into blender.

STEP THREE: Cut three strawberries and into slices of four and add them into the blender.

STEP FOUR: Pour unsweetened almond milk into blender. Just a little eye it. (See 1st pic above)

STEP FIVE: Blend!!! Blend to your liking. I personally like to have a few chunks of frozen banana and strawberries left in the mix.

You can also add a teeny bit stevia to make it a little sweeter if you like. I also like to add  crushed walnuts. Hey add whatever you like. GO CRAzY… Heyyyy now put that chocolate syrup back…. Keep it HEALTHY!!!!
