Kick Your Sweet Tooth

Do you have a sweet tooth that you want to get rid of without chocolate? Wait, what? There’s a healthy way to curb a sweet tooth?! Yes! The past few days I have been experimenting with some fruit I have around the house and my concoctions are simple and delicious!

Steps:

1. Cut your apple into slices. I usually use an apple slicer, but a simple knife will do!
2. Place your slices onto a microwave-safe plate
3. Sprinkle cinnamon on top of your apple slices
4. Drizzle honey on top of your apple slices if you want more sweetness (optional)
5. Pop them into the microwave for 45 seconds
6. Enjoy! They will be hot, so be careful!I like to pair them with a dollop of greek yogurt on top sometimes! This also can be done with other fruits as well! Bananas taste delicious. I like to put them on top of my vanilla ice cream if I want to cheat on the “healthy” part. :)(If you drizzle honey on top, the best way to eat them is with a fork unless you don’t mind getting sticky fingers!)

Steps:
1. Spread out your grapes onto a plate or put them in a Ziploc bag. (I prefer spreading them out because they tend to freeze together when touching).
2. Place them in the freezer for a few hours (check on them every so often. They are small, so they don’t need to be kept too long).
3. Once they are frozen, start munchin’! If you have sensitive teeth, you can let them defrost a bit. 🙂

This one is my favorite! Guilt-free banana ice cream! And all you need is one ingredient: a banana! 😀 This is the best way to use up those brown bananas on your counter that no one wants to eat. The riper the banana, the sweeter the ice cream.

Steps:
1. Cut some very ripe bananas into slices and put them into a Ziploc bag.
2. Freeze them for just 1-2 hours.
3. Toss them into a food processor or a blender and blend them up. (It works much more efficiently to toss a few pieces in, blend, add a few more pieces, blend, and repeat instead of overworking your machine).
4. While the food processor/blender is off, scrape the sides of the bowl. Then continue to blend. It helps if you do this several times.
5. If your bananas are being really stubborn and they don’t want to turn creamy, add a splash or two of milk or almond milk to get things moving along.
5. Then keep blending until magic happens right before your very own eyes! Creamy ice cream made right out of the bananas sitting on your counter.

(You can even add some nutella, peanut butter, or honey if you want chocolatey or peanut buttery or honey-ey goodness!)

I actually just made some of the banana ice cream right now, so here is a shot of how mine turned out! If it want it to be a bit harder and more of an ice cream consistency all-around, pop it in the freezer (but don’t leave it for too long because it turns rock hard and needs to be defrosted again).

And here is a recipe I found from a different blog. It doesn’t necessarily use fruit, but it’s still healthy!

Make eating yogurt more exciting with frozen yogurt chips!
I think I’m going to use greek yogurt instead and see what those taste like. Click here to see the recipe! You won’t regret it!! 🙂
