i have this reoccuring problem in my life.
i love sugar.
i want sugar.
everywhere i go, i see sugar and i buy the sugar and then continue to consume the sugar.
the sweet tooth i inherited from my dear mother is getting out of hand.
so i decided i am going to start a sugar-prevention program for myself.
problem: everything that doesn't include sugar as a top-three ingredient is gross.
check out this awesome recipe i found on pinterest.
BANANA "ICE CREAM"
if my subpar photography skills aren't eye-appealing enough to persuade you, click here for the original recipe link.
basically, all you do is slice up 3 bananas. freeze em.
look, we're halfway done!
i pulled out the food processor that i didn't even know i had.
(every day is like christmas when you're a newly wed)
spent literally 25 minutes trying to set it up.
i had never touched one in my life before.
in frustration, i summoned the husband to work his magic, because the machine obviously hated me.
he rotated the lid so it wasn't on backwards, and after a few tears i was good to go.
after the lid is secured the right way, push "on." it takes about a minute and a half for the bananas to become a ice-cream-replica bowlful of heaven. as i took the lid to the food processor off, i heard the hallelujah chorus.
the bananas alone in this consistency are an excellent snack. but since i am easing my way into this whole "eat vegetables and fruits instead of candy and chocolate" thing, i added a spoonful of peanut butter and 2 tsps of cocoa.
i was feeling like a culinary genius, so i added some strawberry slices on top to achieve a full-on gourmet presentation.
i am so glad that you follow my blog so that you too can enjoy this amazing creation.
aren't you lucky?
from this week forward, i vow to stop buying the long stick of banana-flavored laffy taffy as a daily mid-afternoon snack, and instead i will replace my sugary sweets with healthier things i find on pinterest.
