Frozen Yoghurt

Banana and strawberry frozen yoghurtBanana, Strawberry Frozen Yoghurt is a quick and simple dessert or snack.

This one is great for the kids. No worrying about time. This treat is ready in less than 5 minutes. Whenever the strawberries are in danger of spoiling or the bananas in the fruit bowl have seen better days, I quickly transfer them to the freezer for calling upon for a recipe such as this. With the fruit already frozen, all I need to do is add a little yoghurt to the mix, blend and serve.

I think there is enough sweetness to tempt young taste buds from the fruit alone but you can always add a little honey to taste.

Ingredients

2 Frozen Bananas

1 Cup Chopped Frozen Strawberries

½ cup Greek yoghurt

Method 

Peel and chop your frozen bananas (if you didn’t do this before you froze them)

Add them to the blender along with the frozen strawberries.

Add the greek yoghurt.

Process until you have the consistency of frozen yoghurt.

Serve immediately.

Topped with fresh strawberries, nuts or granola.

Pineapple, Kale and Strawberry Juice

pineapple-kale-and-strawberry-juiceI’m always up for a good nutrition packed smoothie or juice, especially when we are hitting Spring time and the ‘detox  season’ after winter’s dietary  sins.

This one has a great zing and is a little on the earthy side.

Perhaps it should be classed more like a ‘roughy’ instead of a smoothie when it comes to consistency but none the less it packs a great therapeutic punch with it’s high antioxidants, fibre and enzymes as well as circulatory and anti-inflammatory  properties.

Ingredients

3/4 cup Pineapple

1 cup Strawberries

½ cup Kale leaves

1 tsp Ginger grated

¼ cup Water

 

Method

Remove the strawberry tops and chop the pineapple into pieces.

Remove the kale leaves from the stems.

Grate the ginger.

Combine the above ingredients with water and blitz.
