Oh Boy It's Better than Ice Cream
Made this the last couple of weekends and am so happy, not only is it super low calorie, but filling and delicious.
Not a Smoothie Smoothie
You can use a variety of frozen fruits but I love a base of Frozen Mango because it makes this as smooth as real ice cream. Use only unsweetened ingredients. No Sugar!
Here is the basic recipe you can add anything to:
1 cup frozen mango chunks - 80calories
1/2 cup yogurt or kefir -plain of flavored. 70 Calories (Use Soy based for milk free)
1/2 frozen banana 50 Calories
almost 2 Servings
1 cup 100 Calories
Put it all into your blender or processor and let it go for as long as it takes to turn into ice cream. You have to eat it right away, it doesn't freeze like ice cream.
This weekend I am going to add some strawberries that I froze. This is a great way to use up that last bit of fruit that you don't feel like eating, just toss it in the freezer. Make sure to peel your banana ( hahah sounds funny) and cut into small chunks before freezing.
I can't wait to try:
~pineapple - orange.
~blueberry - raspberry
~Plain Banana with Yogurt and tsp. Peanut Butter mmmm
~Oh the combos are endless
Don't forget to weigh and measure and count the Calories.
Yes its a pita, but, you can eat and enjoy when you know what you are doing.
