Easy Peasy Ice Creams!

Standard

The base of all my ice creams are frozen bananas!

 

Here’s my frozen banana trick:

Keep the peal on the banana when you freeze it, that way only the peal will be dark and the inside of the banana will be perfect. When you are ready to make your ice cream, just simply scrape off the peel.

 

Simple Banana Ice Cream:

-2 frozen bananas

 

Chocolate Ice Cream:

-1/4 cup cacao powder

-2 frozen bananas

 

Berries and Dream Cream:

-1/2 cup frozen berries of choice

-2 bananas

 

Mango Ice Cream:

-1 mango fresh or frozen

-2 frozen bananas!

 

Combine in a vitamix and enjoy!! Happy summer to all 🙂

Making Homemade Pepper mint powder in Ida-the-vita!

Easy peasy Homemade Peppermint powder using a vitamix: Original idea

-A handful inwrapped peppermint cushion candies

-Your vita!

Blend em up on high, and allow it to settle before opening the lid, since it has turned into dust. Store in a mason jar away from dampness.

Also, does anyone else think that last picture looks like the lid is floating? Not sure how that happened!

You can use your powder to sprinkle on deserts instead of sugar, or to add to your hot cocoa or lattes during the holiday season!

Ryan’s father loves Orange Rolls. I found that out last year, at easter when we had a morning breakfast all together. Me and Ryan’s stepmom Candise made batches and batches of cinnamon rolls, and a couple special rolls, which were oranger flavored.

This year, when we went over to their house for thanksgiving, I took the oppertunity, to make a special treat just for him. Homemade Fresh, Glazed Orange Rolls.

Glazed Orange Rolls: from Ginger Bread Bagels

The author of ginger bread bagels does such a great job explaining this recipe, This is the ONLY recipe i’ve ever linked my readers too without my changes!

http://gingerbreadbagels.com/2011/04/22/glazed-orange-rolls/

And they were tasty!!! I am thinking of turning it into a little tradition, and bring a couple at every holiday I join them for.

Sweet fall treats, and sharing!  🙂
