Fruit 'Ice-creams' & Veggies

I hope you all had a lovely easter and got to enjoy some time off! Here are some quick  and easy recipes to add to your repertoire.

Apple and Almond Butter
Easy doesn't even cover this one...
Apple
Almond Butter
  • Slice apple thinly
  • Spread small amounts of almond butter on apple and enjoy!

Broccoli, Mushrooms and Sage
Small head of broccoli
2 cups chopped brown mushrooms
1 tbsp chopped Fresh Sage
1 spring onion
1 garlic clove
1 cup stock
  • chop vegetables, onion and garlic
  • dry fry onion and garlic
  • add broccoli and mushrooms
  • add stock
  • When vegetables are almost cooked stir through chopped sage
  • enjoy!

Raspberry and Banana 'Ice-cream'
2 frozen bananas
2 cups frozen raspberries
1.5 cups water
  • Blend all ingredients (pulse first)
  • If you like it soft serve style eat straight away, if you like it harder just put it in the freezer until it takes your desired consistency- this will keep well in the freezer, just pull it out ahead of serving time so it's soft enough!

Blueberry and Banana 'Ice-cream'
2 frozen bananas
2 cups frozen blueberries
1.5 cups water
  • Blend all ingredients (pulse first)
  • If you like it soft serve style eat straight away, if you like it harder just put it in the freezer until it takes your desired consistency- this will keep well in the freezer, just pull it out ahead of serving time so it's soft enough!

Chocolate and Banana 'Ice-cream'
4 frozen bananas
4 tsp raw cacao powder
1.5 cups water
  • Blend all ingredients (pulse first)
  • If you like it soft serve style eat straight away, if you like it harder just put it in the freezer until it takes your desired consistency- this will keep well in the freezer, just pull it out ahead of serving time so it's soft enough!

Chocolate Avocado Mousse
This one is very similar to the choc mint one I posted earlier here, but I had the camera out so why not?
4 small avocados (once again- go organic, they taste SO much better)
2 tsp vanilla paste/extract whatever you like
stevia to taste- if you're going to eat it with fruit like me you really don't need much!
2 tsp cacao powder (or more if you like it really strong)


These are all really quick and easy to make- rarely do I make things that take a lot of time and effort, because I really don't have the time! (and the pressure cooker makes lengthy dishes quick!)

I hope you give these a go, they're healthy, low cal and satisfying- Let yourself enjoy them :) xxx
