Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream

It’s perfect weather for ice cream here in Dallas.  So I am busy making new flavors like this Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream.  Or rather, “nice cream.”  I call it nice cream because it’s made with frozen bananas.  That makes it very healthy too!

Now, don’t get scared off by the phrase, healthy ice cream. I promise it’s really delicious!  My 6 year old actually begs for this almost every afternoon in the summer. The best part about this?  You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this! Yay!

I didn’t blend mine super well because I liked the bananas kind of chunky, but you are more than welcome to blend until smooth.  You can also make this with sunflower butter instead of almond butter for a nut free option.

When I go to the store, I always buy two bunches of bananas so I can put one bunch in the freezer.  That way I always have bananas on hand to make this.

These healthy bites are a cinch to make too.  They are vegan, gluten free AND paleo friendly as well!  I hope you love them as much as we did.  Ours didn’t even last one day.

If you want to add even more nutrition, you can also add chia, flax or seeds to these. If you choose to do that, you may need to adjust the liquids as well.

I used roasted and unsalted cashew butter when making these.  If you use unsalted, I suggest adding a little salt to the recipe.  Maybe a pinch?

I live in Texas and summers are HOT.  In fact, it’s already getting pretty hot here and it’s barely the beginning of May!  We spend most of our time out by the pool and this frozen treat is a great way to cool off.

Roasted Mushrooms with Thyme

Everything is better with balsamic, right?  I love these Roasted Mushrooms with Thyme and you will too.  They are full of flavor and easy to make.

I could eat a whole tray!  This healthy mushroom dish could go with many things.  I think they would be delicious tossed in zucchini pasta with a cream sauce, over green lentils, or served over warm salad greens.
