Just finishing up the last bit of my banana nice cream today! Last week I made it with some frozen bananas, peanut butter powder, a splash of vanilla and almond milk. I just threw it all in my food processor and BAM! There it was! To help with serving size, I actually put it into one of those giant muffin tins that only has 6 muffins (you know what I’m talking about right?) and put it in my freezer until I was ready to eat it.
It was super hot today and I was walking around campus for orientation, a workshop, and getting some errands done, so I definitely needed to cool off once I got home and this was the PERFECT thing!
Zach wasn’t really in love with the banana flavor, so I think next we’re gonna try to make pineapple sorbet. Do any of you make banana nice cream or some sort of sorbet? If so, what all do you put in it?
I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
This right here is currently one of my favorite summertime snacks/desserts. AND it’s stupid easy to make. Recipe is going up on the blog soon (pb “ice cream” sandwiches). I’ve been eating them as afternoon snacks or to end dinner/the night. Night time eating used to be a major issue for me. Largely because I had an unrealistic idea of what my evening eating “should” look like. Eating a bowl of cereal seemed like it was overeating to me because I didn’t feel physically hungry for it most of the time (but guys, it was just a bowl of cereal ), but I felt such an emotional pull to eat it. I HAD to eat some sort of snack and oftentimes craved sweets and off-limits foods. I felt so controlled by food and had a lot of shame for “overeating”. Now, I recognize that those episodes of nighttime eating were in response to not eating enough during the day, feeling restricted all the time, and not eating satisfying meals (aka, dinners HIGH in veggies and low in carbs/calories). The process has been very gradual and there are still times I find myself going to the kitchen at night when I’m not physically hungry, which is when I have to be curious about the WHY—did I possibly not eat enough today? Did I restrict myself in what ate? Was my dinner balanced and satisfying? Is there some sort of negative emotion or action I am avoiding?
If you can relate, I’d encourage you NOT to set up more rigid rules to keep your eating “in-check”, but to ask yourself the above questions and to honor your hunger and cravings regularly.
It’s National #Creamsicle Day! Originally created by Frank Eppperson in 1905, this industrious, and inventive 11 year old experimented with putting #fruit#juice around #vanilla ice cream. The original ‘Epsicle’, which later became known as a Popsicle, creamsicle and even dreamsicle, were done with just the orange juice outside. However now you can find them in a myriad of flavors, from #orange to blue #raspberry, #lime, #grape, #cherry and even #blueberry. Great snack on a hot and finally sunny day like today
The perfect pair, a summer day and a frozen treat! It’s National Creamsicle Day! Who will be celebrating? Do you prefer the traditional frozen snack or the flavor? #nationalcreamsicleday@bakesaletoronto
