When temperatures soar, it’s such a delight to have a frozen dessert to cool down. Ice cream usually hits the spot, but it’s a treat that we want to save for special days. Here, I want to share some other options that are nutritious enough to enjoy every day!
BANANA NICE CREAM
Banana “nice cream” is so smooth and creamy you won’t even miss the added sugar or cream. It’s easy as 1-2-3 to prepare. Just keep some peeled bananas in your freezer so they’ll be ready when you are in the mood for this delicious and versatile dessert.
Try these flavors or experiment with your own:
Everyone loves sweet, icy popsicles, and they are super fun and easy to make—all these recipes have 4 ingredients or less!
They are a snap to make at home whether you have a popsicle mold or not. If you don’t have a mold, simply place your fruit blend in paper cups, cover with tin foil and then place popsicle stick (or wooden chop stick!) through foil and freeze.
If you’re just too hot and tired to whip up your own frozen treat, we have some great options. Here are Whole Foods Market, we don’t allow high-fructose corn syrup in any of our products so you can feel confident that you aren’t getting any pops that will spike your blood sugar through the roof.
Here are some of my favorite frozen treats!
Fruit and Veggie Bars! All bars have at least a ½ cup of real fruit and vegetables. Choose from Carrot Tangerine, Strawberry Rhubarb, or Tropical Greens!
Another smart choice is our Organic Greek Yogurt Dessert Bars. We start off with rich, organic, low-fat Greek yogurt, then add mouth-watering strawberries or blueberries. Yum!
