Honey Banana Ice Cream

Honey banana ice cream

Who loves ice cream?

We LOVE ice cream; almost as much as honey. It is definitely one of our top five favorite foods lol. I am not going to lie had some trouble with this recipe, it has taken me quiet a few months to get the consistency just right. I think I finally figured out how to make it work. I have had loads of people ask how to make a dairy free ice cream; so I began playing in the kitchen with a simple way to do it. Lets face it many people are struggling for time and it has been getting harder to make things at home! I did add the chocolate and caramel whipped honeys, so if you want this completely dairy free keep those out. So here is my simple Honey Banana Ice Cream.

Ingredients:

3- ripe medium banana’s

1 cup- Cashew milk

1/4- 1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup- chocolate whipped honey (optional)

1/4 cup- caramel whipped honey (optional)

Directions: 

Unpeel the banana’s and cut them up into 1 inch chunks. Place them in a quart ziplock bag and freeze them over night. Place the frozen banana’s into the blender and start blending. Add 1/2 cup of cashew milk and let blend, add the second 1/2 cup and blend again. Add the 1/4 cup of honey. If you do not use the chocolate or caramel whipped honey or dairy free equivalent; add 1/2 cup of honey.

Tips:

-Add some crunch with adding a TBSP. of peanuts or almonds

-Add 1/4 cup of fresh fruit on top

-Add whip cream

Are you looking for something to keep you full?

It is cold outside and it is time for some hearty warm food! This is one of our most versatile recipes because you can use ground beef, pork, chicken, or turkey and it does not overly change the flavor. Also, this recipe does not take a lot of time to make and works great in a crock pot. This recipe also works well if you just want a hearty bowl of chili or if you want to make chili cheese dogs. What I find most wonderful is that it is filling and really hits the spot on cold days. I hope you get as buzzed with this recipe as I do!

Ingredients: 

1 pound ground turkey

2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning

1 Tablespoon of chili powder

1 teaspoon of cumin

1 28-ounce can of tomato puree

1 6-ounce can of tomato paste

1 large fresh tomato

2 cans of triple beans; pinto, black, and kidney beans

1/2-3/4 cup of honey

1 bag of Frito’s

2 cups of cheddar cheese

Dollop of sour cream (optional)

Directions:

Put the ground turkey, Italian seasoning, chili powder, and cumin into a medium sized cooking pot (make sure to have a lid for it). Cook the turkey for about 4 minutes just to get the flavor of the seasoning into the meat. Add the tomato puree and the tomato paste to the turkey; dice the tomato into medium chunks and add to the pot. Drain any water off of the beans and add to the chili. Place a lid on top of the pot and let simmer on medium heat for 20 minutes stirring every 5 minutes to make sure it is all mixing together. Take off the heat and stir in the 1/2 cup of honey; depending on how sweet you like your chili you can add up to 3/4 cup.

Take 1/2 cup of Frito’s and place in a bowl, add about 3/4 cup of chili, a sprinkle of cheese, and a dollop of sour cream if you want to.

Tips:

  • Add some diced onions for extra crunch and flavor
  • Add some green chili or some jalapeno’s for some spice
  • Try a dollop of Greek yogurt if you are not into sour cream
