Memorial Day Ice Cream Treat!

Greetings wellness lovers!

Today I was hoping to inspire you with a refreshing Memorial Day treat! It's sweet, creamy, cooling... and of course healthy! It boasts 14+ grams of fiber per serving, is high in potassium, very high in omega-3 fatty acids as well as protein, and is completely free of added sugar!

Memorial Day Banana Soft Serve


  • 1 large banana, frozen in halves
  • 3 tablespoons milk of your choice (I used coconut.)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • dash of stevia, powdered or liquid (I used NuNaturals vanilla.)
  • strawberries + blueberries, for patriotic color!

Blend frozen banana halves and milk in a food processor. Add in chia seeds and stevia, Transfer to a bowl, and garnish with fruit! Simple. (Makes 1 large serving or 2 smaller.)

In terms of Ayurveda...
According to the 5,000+ year old ancient natural healing system of Ayurveda, this is an excellent balancing food for individuals of the 'Pitta' body type... or, in modern terms: people who tend to be competitive, driven, sometimes hot + fiery, type A people.

I hope you are having an amazing week!
