Recipe: Yummy Summertime Frosty
Everyone’s talking about how bad sugar is for you. There are even entire documentaries on the topic. The amount of information in the “health waves” can be crazy sometimes.
Sugar is not a health food, as you know. And “added sugars” (ones that are not naturally found in whole foods like fruit) are particularly bad. They’re not only bad for diabetes; but, also for your waistline, mood, and energy levels.
So let’s look at sugar more objectively, shall we? Is there a good balance that can be found? (Spoiler alert: It may not be what you think.)
Here’s a fabulous dessert recipe for those times you crave the white stuff (and it doesn’t even have any white stuff in it!).
Recipe (No added sugar): Frosty
¾ cup almond milk (unsweetened)
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
½ banana, frozen
- Add everything into a blender except ice. Blend.
- Add a handful of ice cubes and pulse until thick and ice is blended.
Serve & enjoy!
