I scream, you scream, we all scream for… NICE cream???  Its HOT and summer is only half over!  Treats are always in abundance during the summer and our health goals get a little lost in all the fun.  Why not combine your health goals and some creative fun in the form of treats?  I love redefining treats that not only taste good, but my body will thank me for it.  So I’m going to share my latest NICE cream treat from www.thebettyrocker.com that will have the kids…and big kids raving 😉!  This is perfect for those who are dairy free, sugar free or for someone who never wants to skip dessert again!

Peppermint Mini Chip Nice cream

1. Peel and chop your bananas, then freeze in a Ziplock bag or cookie tray.

3. Add in peppermint extract, salt and almond milk and blend again.

5. Add in cacao nibs and pulse until well mixed into the batter.

Eat right away, or transfer to a container and freeze for an hour for an ice-cream-like texture!

TOP it off!  This is one that’s easy to get creative with!  Add fresh fruit, nuts, shredded coconut, hemp hearts or chia seeds!
