Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice cream

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice cream

I don’t know about you but my vice is ice cream, especially in the summer. I mean come on … I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! In an effort to bring some health to this summertime family addiction, I grabbed some frozen bananas, peanut butter, cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips, and an ice cream maker and tried my hand at some healthy(er) homemade ice cream and it wasn’t too bad! I mean listen, if you are expecting this to taste like DQ ice cream, you will be sorely disappointed so let’s have some realistic expectation here. 😉

Ingredients:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • ½ cup, cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup, all natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1 cup, Almond Milk
  • ½ cup, chocolate chips  (plus more for topping)

Directions:

  1. In a blender, mix all the ingredients (minus the chocolate chips)
  2. transfer the mixture to your ice cream maker
  3. once the ice cream is done, transfer into a freezer – safe container for later or serve immediately!

Crustless Quiche

Crustless Quiche

My entire family enjoyed this quiche. Plus, it’s packed with vegetables & we’re ditching the carbs. Daaang girl. This is a great Saturday morning breakfast. So, grab the family, gather at the table, enjoy each other and this quiche.

Let me know what you think!

 Ingredients:

  • 3 egg whites

  • 3 eggs

  • 3/4cup nonfat milk or unsweetened almond milk

  • 2-3 of your favorite veggies to cook up. I used carrots, broccoli, and an onion (simply because that’s all I had in the house)

  • 2/3cup reduced fat shredded cheese (I like to buy a block of cheese and shred it on my own…there is added junk in shredded cheese)

Directions // preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. On medium-high heat, cook your veggies 6-7 minutes or until tender.

2. In a mixing bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together until thoroughly combined.

3. Place your cooked veggies in a 9-in pie pan (they act like your crust).

4. Top your veggies with the shredded cheese.

5. Pour the egg mixture over the veggies.

6. Top with cheese.

7. Bake for 45 min or until cooked all the way through.

Enjoy!!
