Healthy Strawberry Banana “Ice Cream”

A Cool Valentine's Day Treat (Dairy Free and Sugar Free!) 

Healthy eating is a challenge (for children and adults alike).

My husband and I make an effort to eat a healthy diet. We try to include lots of fruits and vegetables and limit our sugar intake. And we try to teach our children to do the same.

But it's really tough.

We have a long way to go when it comes to eating super healthy.

And we don't always make healthy choices. But we do try, and we are teaching our children to make healthy choices as much as possible.

One of our best investments for adding fruits and vegetables to our diet was the purchase of a Vitamix Blender. We especially love using it to make a variety of smoothies and frozen treats.

It literally took us a few years to decide to purchase one because of the price. They are SO expensive! But we are so glad that we did!

I just wanted to share a recipe with you today that I made up. It's super simple and we really like it:

Strawberry Banana "Ice Cream"

You will need:

1 cup frozen strawberries

1 very ripe frozen banana (peeled)

1/2 cup cold water

drizzle of honey

Put all ingredients in Vitamix and blend on Frozen Treats Setting.

Makes 3 to 4 servings.

This would probably work in a regular blender, but it may be more chunky.  (If you try it in a regular blender, let me know how it turns out!)

What we absolutely love about the Vitamix is how smooth our frozen treats turn out.  This really helps children who are sensitive to certain textures of fruits and vegetables (like my daughter) to get more nutrition.

I hope you and your family enjoy this cool healthy treat.

How do you teach your children about healthy eating? I would love to hear from you. Please comment below.

  1. We use our blender almost every day! It is such a great investment! We make something similar to this but with OJ and it’s more of a smoothie. I love that you call it ice cream. Anything with ice cream in the title has to be good!! One way that we eat healthier is by growing some of our own vegetables. It’s amazing how much my kids(who are very picky) want to eat something that they wouldn’t otherwise when they have grown it themselves:)

    • Thanks Rebekah! I love hearing that your family grows some of your own vegetables. We are planning a small garden this year so I hope that will also encourage my children to eat healthier. 🙂
