MY HOMEMADE BANANA ICE CREAM RECIPE

And I’m back. Pregnancy has really slowed me down and posting to the blog has been occasional. Good thing about pregnancy: I’m now in a serious cooking mood and will make an effort to share more of my quick and easy recipes on the blog. One of my favorite homemade sweet treats, Banana Ice Cream; packed with protein and only a few ingredients you more than likely already have in your kitchen. If you’re a banana lover like me, then you’ll love this recipe. I think what I love most about this recipe is that it’s quick, easy to make, doesn’t require an ice cream maker and satisfies that sweet tooth many of us have during the hot summer months. If you’re like me, the sweet tooth is coming from growing a tiny human, LOL. Anywho, peep the recipe below. I’ve tried to provide accurate measurements for 1 serving size, but to be honest, I never measure anything so there’s that, LOL. For accuracy purposes, I would say this recipe is equivalent to about 1 Like It cup from Cold Stones Creamery; ice cream lovers will know exactly what I’m talking about ;).

Ingredients

  • 1-2 large, ripe bananas
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of Honey (optional)
  • Pinch of Nutmeg (optional)
  • Peanut Toppings (optional)

Instructions

  1. Banana’s should be cut and frozen for at least 2 hours.
  2. Add frozen bananas peanut butter, vanilla, cinnamon and any other ingredients you’d like to your blender. Blend until creamy. Eat immediately after blending or freeze for later.

A Few Tips

  1. I add a little extra peanut butter to this recipe when I want more protein.
  2. Sometimes I add some vanilla protein to turn this into a hardy middle of the day snack.
  3. Sometimes bananas aren’t sweet enough for some or you get some bananas that just aren’t sweet; adding a teaspoon of coconut sugar will do the trick. Alternatively, you can add a bit of honey.

Stay tuned for a few more of my fav pregnancy recipes. I have been experimenting a lot and can’t wait to share. Until then, enjoy!

SPRING TIME LOOK WITH PINKBLUSH MATERNITY

SURPRISE! I’m pregnant, LOL. Hopefully this explains why I haven’t posted anything to the blog since January. Currently feeling good and celebrating the fact that my nausea days are behind me, well, I hope 😂 LOL.

On the blog today, I’m sharing the most darling springtime look. I’ve been looking for a white dress for Easter for the longest time and have finally found one that fits my growing belly, thanks to PinkBlush Maternity. They have some of the most darling maternity clothing on their website. I love the variety in their online selection. They have casual pieces, dressy pieces, jeans, and even clothes to wear on delivery day or while in the hospital. There is definitely something for every new mom out there or mom to be.

I’ve been trying my best to remain stylish during this pregnancy and this pretty white lace dress has me feeling oh so beautiful, confident and springtime ready. I’ll be showcasing one more piece from the PinkBlush Maternity line on the blog later in the month, but wanted to make sure you all were able to shop my pretty white lace dress and the other marvelous pieces they have on their site. I kept it simple with my styling and opted for a cute pink flower hair accessory, small diamond stud earrings and pink platform heels, but there are definitely a plethora of ways you can style this fun lace white midi dress. You can wear a fun floral cover up with it, opt for a different hair accessory or even wear a cute drop necklace and matching earrings. However you style it, you’ll look flawless and ready to take on spring in style.
