Strawberry Banana Protein Ice-cream, Magic Bullet Review, & Video

Hey guys, how was your weekend? I hope it was good!

Yesterday, I was pretty much alone all day, so I was busy making recipes, videos, and writing posts for the week. Do you feel like you get a lot done when everyone stays away from you all day? Moving on, I wanted to do something special for my review of the Magic Bullet, so I decided to make a quick video on the spotlight recipe + what I think of the bullet.

Also, I will post my a sorbet recipe I made that is perfect for summer!

Am I just on a roll of what with all these recipes! Creative ideas are coming my way! Let’s hope it stays this way…

Check out the video here!

Strawberry banana protein icecream

Directions:

  • Blend all ingredients in your Magic Bullet until completely smooth
  • Pour into a container
  • Freeze for 30 minutes
  • Eat in the container or on a cone
  • NOTE: If you eat it on a cone, it tastes better if after you fill your cone with ice-cream, freeze it for about 15 more minutes!

The Magic Bullet is great for making quick smoothies, grinding oats, ice-cream, sorbets, even cupcake batter—> Paleo Cupcakes

You can also use the lower blade to grind your nuts and seeds like I did with my pecan/currant mixture for my Super Food Breakfast Bar

Oh man, fresh made ice-cream in 90 degree humid weather might be the best thing! Can’t beat something cold when it’s boiling hot outside! Anyone with me here?

So, what do you think about this ice-cream recipe? Do you think you will try it?

Let me know if you watched the video!

As I promised in the video, here’s the recipe for the Sorbet! I noticed, that eating something like this, keeps me from craving actual ice-cream that’s filled with sugar and HFCS. If you’re looking for something to fix that sweet tooth late at night, you might as well go out with a nutritious and satisfying dessert, right?

Zevia (the better soda) Review & GIVEAWAY!

Good morning and TGIF! And to kick off the weekend, I have an awesome GIVEAWAY for all my fabulous readers!

10261133_693862403995260_1712473604_n

Just want to say real quick, I really do appreciate all who take the time to comment and read my blog…it means the world! Smile

First off, Zevia, is my favorite beverage by far. And hopefully can be yours too.

I don’t even remember when I discovered Zevia and how I found out about it, I just know I picked it up at Whole Foods once to try and immediately fell in love with it. I stopped drinking sodas about the early 2000’s, and thank goodness I did, but I really missed the sweet, carbonated beverage. So, after several years, I found my soda, Zevia!

Anyway, Zevia so kindly sent me a 6-pack of their sodas to try out, review, and…wait for it…GIVE AWAY!

  • Strawberry: I actually had not tried this one before…so, the first sip was like strawberry heaven to me. It tasted quite delightful and I’d say 10/10 in my book
  • Caffeine Free Cola: Yep, tastes like cola, if you’re wondering. And great for those who aren’t caffeine junkies!
  • Grapefuit Citrus: This one is actually my favorite. I’m a huge fan of anything grapefruit flavored, so this one is also a 10/10!

  • Cherry Cola: Oh my goodness, I hadn’t tried this one either, so the first sip was pretty rockin’. I already like the Black Cherry Flavor and this one was just as good. Definitely thumbs up on this one!
  • Ginger Root Beer: Growing up, root-beer was like my favorite. So, as a root-beer expert, this makeover of the classic soda flavor, tastes perfecto!
  • Ginger Ale: Okay, ginger ale was one of those sodas that I’d sip on if I was sick or not feeling well as a kid, but didn’t make any sense to drink something filled with so much sugar. I’d recommend this non-sugar filled flavor (well, all the time actually) but if you aren’t feeling well…

I can honestly say, all Zevia’s are quite excellent. Don’t hesitate to try them! Stop drinking sugar and take care of your body! Drink and eat items that are beneficial in the long run. Drink Smart. Eat Smart. Stay Healthy
