Delicious treat - Cool, healthy and tasty too

Saturday, July 20, 2013

I have recently rediscovered a favorite treat that is healthy and simple too. You start with frozen berries (pick your favorite flavor - I love them all) put them in a small dish and pour a little milk (cream/almond milk/whatever your preference) over them and stir - the milk freezes onto the berries and it is cool, tasty and healthy. You can throw it in the blender to make a smoothie, but I like it as my berries ice treat. For a truly tasty smoothie, I use frozen berries, a frozen banana, a little bit of lemon or lime juice and blend it up - adding water if needed to get to the right texture to drink. Again, you can use milk or one of the milk substitutes for the smoothies, but these work for those who are lactose intolerant. Berries are SOOOO good for us and I like to switch things up every so often. Get creative and have fun. Even the kids love these. You can also create the smoothie and then pour into ice cube trays or ice pop forms - they are healthy, cool and yummy.

    Sounds good to try. I use Lite Vanilla Soy Milk, I bet it will be good for mornings when I forgot to defrost berries for my yogurt. Thx for the idea

    Hi Nancy, it seems we're on the same wave length regarding the great ways to use ripe bananas for a tasty low cal treat. A friend of min brought over a very large bag of frozen blueberries as he knows Brent likes to put them into his smoothies. It was so nice and thoughtful of him. He's been a good family friend for many years and truthfully I know he feels bad that Brent doesn't have a better quality of life, and so do I. Anyway I'm now thinking along the line of using some of those berries and find a low calorie SP Blueberry bread or cobbler to make. I love to bake sweet breads and muffins from time to time but haven't done that in many months as I still don't trust myself not to overeat them when they taste so good and sweet to me. I'm sure a work in progress. . .

Hugs,

Jill

    I use frozen berries, milk, and whatever fun additives I can think of that day BUT I press them al into a plastic cup, then flip it over onto a plate and squeeze it out. The kids love it when I make a "Berry Tower"
