Spring is finally here! With spring comes warmer weather, and with warmer weather comes cravings for ice cream (at least for me). Personally, I could eat ice cream every day, but I think we all know what would happen if I did that. Everything in moderation, folks!

In case any of you are like me, I found some great recipes on the web for healthier versions of ice cream – and not all of them contain frozen bananas! Once you get the basics down, you could easily swap out ingredients to make any flavor you want. You can stay fit and indulge, too.

Last but not least, here’s my own recipe that I very recently created.

Chocolate Vanilla Sundae

Adjust the ice and amount of liquid as necessary – it also makes a really delicious shake! I’ve made it with different flavors; sometimes I want it for dessert and sometimes I want it for breakfast, so I make it fruity. Here it’s pictured with a little “real” ice cream and Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup on top. 🙂 

ice cream

  • 1 container Greek yogurt (I used Dannon Light & Fit Toasted Coconut Vanilla)
  • 5 oz Muscle Milk (I used chocolate)
  • Handful of ice

Add the ingredients to a Magic Bullet or blender and blend until thoroughly combined. To thicken it, add more ice or place in freezer for a few minutes.

Enjoy!
