Banana Berry Cream Supreme

Lactose Intolerant lovers special this will surely be a favorite delight for the whole family…

Okay, so as many of you know if you had a chance to read my review of the different blenders that I have been raving about the Nutribullet 900HP.  Well, after seeing in Wal-Mart an actual device that takes frozen bananas and make them into ice cream I decided to give my nutribullet a new task.  It was daunting and the outcome unsure, but if I could make my home famous dairy free banana ice cream in my nutribullet it would solve a whole host of problems, but I wanted to tweak my recipe just a smudge by adding some other healthy ingredients to actually make ice cream not only yummy but Ultra healthy as well.  Well, I am posting it because my experiment was a HUGE success.  So much so that I won’t have to buy another device but rather I can use my ole faithful Nutribullet which is proving to be a heavy contender for fully replacing my Vitamix 3600.  I tell you sometimes the best things come in the smallest packages or shall I say bullets.  🙂  So here it goes…

Trust me you will want to do this with the Nutribullet I have tried this frozen treat with both the Ninja Healthmaster and Vitamix 3600 and it just can’t cut up those frozen strawberries without taking lots of time and overworking the motor, but the Nutribullet takes it like a champ.  For the first time it took me less time to make the ice cream than to prepare it.  The time factor and the work that it required of my blender is what caused me to stop making this dessert.  Trust me the Nutribullet is worth its fractionated investment.  Especially when you consider portability, ease of use, time, cleanup, proportion, and expense.  This baby can still be purchased for far less than either the Ninja or Vitamix can.

Yummy Juice

I made this juice yesterday and it was absolutely delicious.  I have been experimenting with different juices and smoothies for more than a week now in preparation for my cleanse.  Most of them came out pretty good, but this one was absolutely FANTASTIC!  Had to share it.

  • 1 1/2 cups of ice
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 tangerine
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (optional)
  • 4 tbsp hemp
  • 1 tbsp beet powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (organic)
  • 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1 handful parsley
  • 4 apricot seeds
  • 2 drops slique (absolutely essential for desired flavor)

I have been adding cayenne pepper because it is a blood detoxifier as well as helps to boost energy.  But usually no matter what you juice it with its flavor seems to always be powerfully present.  This was the first drink I made where I literally couldn’t taste it, tried duplicating it again today and by mistake forgot to add the slique and the cayenne taste kicked right back in. I suppose it neutralizes the spice.  It had the flavor of bubble gum… YUM!!!

Click here for more information on this oil.  To find click on shop products, then under wellness you will find Weight Management, here you will find other slique essential products that you may want.  I have the gum it has Frankincense in it and will definitely freshen your breath and curb your appetite.  It took me a few pieces to get acclimated to the taste but once my body adjusted to it had no problem.  The gum however is not suggested for those who have dentures.
