Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes
for dinner brings a smile to my face. It’s my favorite meal of the day, and with these whole wheat banana pancakes you get to indulge a little while still eating healthy. The recipe is pulled from the blog 100 Days of Real Food, which is a great little find in itself. If you are into taking steps towards cutting out processed food or refined ingredients try their 10 day pledge, (which I am going to attempt and will keep you posted when I do). I’m going to try the pancake recipe this weekend, and just as a preference of taste may swap out bananas for blueberries and use agave instead of maple syrup. I foreshadow this one being a winner!

Chocolate-Banana Ice Cream
why not whip this up? It’s ICE CREAM without the cream and is made from 1 ingredient (well, maybe 2 or 3 – depending on how creative you want to be). Rumor has it, this banana-based ice cream is super delicious, nutritious and the ideal dessert for summertime! I’ve seen several variations since being introduced to the concept – some with vanilla (2 teaspoons to be exact), brown sugar & cinnamon – no fancy machine required, so the options really are endless. Here’s one with cocoa from hilaroux. One, two, three – it’s that easy!
1) Freeze a banana
2) Combine with 2 tbsp cocoa powder
3) Blend until smooth and creamy.
