Happy Friday the 13th!

Well, my first week back at school is over! It was nice getting back to a regular schedule, but the information overload was a bit much. Nonetheless, I love school (dork alert) and seeing my class again!

But I wanted to share with you my favorite after school/ after dinner treat! I am a sucker for ice cream, but I get a little ashamed of myself when I have a half gallon of the stuff in my freezer, and within the week it is gone! That was me not putting my nutrition education to good use.

Lately when a want something cold and creamy, I've been making some delectable Banana "Fro yo"

Now, don't be fooled by the name, because there is absolutely no yogurt or dairy in it! There's actually only one ingredient... Bananas! (surprise!) I just call it "fro yo" because the bananas have that creamy soft serve texture you find in fro yo.

This dessert literally takes about 1 minute to make, and almost the same amount of time to enjoy! Super simple and a great alternative to a high fat ice cream. So go make some and get your daily dose of potassium in a quick, vegan friendly way!!

Step 1: Freeze Bananas

Step 2: Put Bananas in Food Processor
Step 3: Pulse, pulse, pulse until the banana beings to chop up and get creamy. Warning: do not turn your food processor on and walk away. Bad things may happen and your food processor might blow up, so just don't walk away!
Half way through chopping, the bananas will look like the above picture. But you're not done! Keep pulsing away!
It's magic! The bananas are now nice and creamy like fro yo!

Step 5: Devour
Garnish with your favorite accompaniments!

What are your favorite mid day snacks or treats? Do you have any recipes that need a healthy makeover? I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. kimberly this is amazing! Will this work with a blender instead of a food processor?

  2. Thanks! I'm sure it will work in the blender too! Give it a try and let me know how it turns out!
