Foodie Friday: Banana & Blueberry Ice Cream

This is my first time joining in on the Foodie Friday link up. I’m linking up with Montana from Pretty Lil’ Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl and Farrah from Fairyburger to create awesome healthy recipes each week! Today’s theme is a healthy dessert.

This is a very simple easy and healthy dessert. I love ice cream but with all the sugary and added ingredients in ice cream I just can’t eat regular ice cream anymore. So one day I made a banana ice cream homemade.
Ingredients:
-1 frozen banana
– handful of frozen blueberries
– 1/2 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract (watch the ingredients a lot of extracts contain HFCS)
 -1/2 tablespoon of PB2 (you may be able to use natural peanut butter, I haven’t tried it yet)
-1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-sprinkle of unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)
banana
 Place all you ingredients into a food processor and mix until blended, don’t mix it for to long it will turn into a milkshake like substance and we want to avoid that.
blend blended after
Place your ice cream into a bowl and devour. It is so yummy and so simple to make. It’s much healthier than store bought ice cream and you know what ingredients are in it.

 

What are some of the healthy sweet treats you’ve made?

When I was on my journey to lose 200 pounds, I got tired of walking on the treadmill because it wasn’t fast enough.  I moved on to a jog and somehow I became a runner.  I started running in 2012 and my first race was a half marathon.  In total I’ve run 19 half marathons and 6 marathons. In May, I ran the Great Wall of China Marathon!

Q&A
-What made me decide to become a runner? Walking on the treadmill just didn’t do it for me any more.  I felt the need for a little bit more speed.
-What is the longest distance I’ve ran? 31 miles in the Texas heat.
-What is your favorite post run fuel? Lowfat chocolate milk and a banana dog (aka a banana in a whole wheat hot dog bun with peanut butter)
-What song is currently being played on my playlist? The Spark by Afrojack.  It’s an inspiring song that always gives me the spark to keep pushing towards my goals.
-What would I tell someone who just started their journey? Take it slow and don’t compare yourself to anyone else.  Set your own goals and define your own victories.
