Many of you know that I've been on a journey lately to eat healthier, less-processed foods. But that doesn't mean I don't occasionally get a craving for something sweet.
I don't really have a huge sweet tooth, but I do like to keep healthy options around for times that I'd like something for dessert. I've really worked to incorporate lots of fruits and vegetables into my diet… so much so that fruits are now my go-to when I need a little bit of a sweet fix.
I also like to keep staples to pair with fruit that can really make it a sweet indulgence. Frozen milk & yogurt cubes are great when you want a smoothie. Greek yogurt & peanut butter are perfect for fruit dips. And, I love pairing fruit with stevia when I really want more of a dessert than a snack.
Born Sweet™ Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener, really has become my go-to sweetener. It is made with only real ingredients — nothing artificial! I like that Zing™ has zero artificial ingredients and zero calories, which make it perfect for adding a delicious sweetness to my favorite foods and drinks throughout the day. You can sprinkle it into your coffee, tea, smoothies, over fruit and other favorite foods and beverages.
This recipe for 4-Ingredient Strawberry/Banana Ice Cream has become my absolute go-to when I want a quick dessert. It's incredibly healthy and really does feel like you're eating a big bowl of decadent ice cream!
4-Ingredient Strawberry Banana Ice Cream
1-2 Packs Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener (depending on how sweet you like your ice cream… I recommend 1 pack)
1/2 cup almond milk, plus a few reserved tablespoons
5-6 large frozen strawberries
1 frozen banana, cut into 1″ slices
Combine Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener, 1/2 cup almond milk, strawberries, and bananas in a blender. Blend until smooth. If the mixture looks a little thick, add reserved almond milk to thin out as needed.
Look for Zing™ in the Sweetener Aisle at mass merchandiser and grocery stores nationwide.
