Blueberry Sorbet

You don’t need an ice cream maker to whip up a quick sorbet dessert. I used fresh blueberries, lemon juice and a pinch of sugar to blend up this blueberry sorbet dessert in my Magic Bullet. Blueberries are high in antioxidants, so this is not only a guilt-free dessert, but a healthy dessert, too! I used to love to eat a bowl of ice cream for dessert after my dinner almost every night, but over the last few years, I […]

Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

One of my first jobs in high school was at Cold Stone Creamery serving up ice cream. I actually gained 15 pounds after working there for a year! It took me an entire summer of working out and banning ice cream from my diet all together to drop the weight. Now whenever I crave ice cream, I look for healthier alternatives to satisfy my sweet cravings instead. This banana peanut butter ice cream always does the trick! The consistency is very […]

Papaya Sherbet

This is basically ice cream. Er, sherbet. Do you prounce it sher-bert or sher-bit? I never know. I always thought it was sherbert. But spell check is trying to tell me there is no extra ‘r’ in thre. Huh. I never liked it as a kid, actually. Give me cookies and cream or give me death! I think that was my mantra. Or something similar, at least. Thankfully my palate has refined a bit. Also this sherbert has a secret. It’s sooooo totally […]

Make Elvis Proud Milkshake

The only thing that would make Elvis Presley more proud of this milkshake would be to add bacon and deep fry it. I always liked the King’s tunes, but what really caught my attention early on was the profile of what he ate. Apparently his favorite sandwich was a giant loaf of bread, hollowed out, slathered in peanut butter and chocolate, with slices of banana and bacon, deep fried. A man after my own heart. Since it’s too much work to fry […]

Julie’s Midnight Smoothie

A couple weeks ago, Julie (my roommate) and I made the mistake of watching The Patriot late at night. It was a mistake not because it’s a Mel Gibson movie, but because we had forgotten how incredibly depressing it is. Just one hit after the other, the low blows just never stopped. And that’s when Julie’s Midnight Smoothie came to the rescue. This recipe is perfect for those nights when you need to do some emotional eating. We used a […]

Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

Well, I guess this is kind of another way to have summer for longer than we are allowed by the seasons. Smores are pretty much a summer staple, but, for whatever reason, no one ever eats them any other time of the year (uh, I know the reason actually, it’s called cold. no one camps in the cold). If you’ve never had a smore, and to be honest it’s difficult to imagine anyone growing up without ever eating one, (but […]

1-Minute Berry Ice Cream

In high school I used to spend a lot of time hanging out on my best friends’ families’ couches. Oftentimes I would find myself making bologna sandwiches and eating their leftovers, too. I loved them for letting me into their homes and their kitchens. It’s there that I discovered my love for eating frozen fruit. Plain. This fruit was really meant for smoothies, but I liked it all alone. Still do. But when that wasn’t cutting it for me, I […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana “Ice Cream”

Yeah. That’s right. All those words. At one time. Is your mouth watering yet? Because mine sure was the first time I heard about this. Did you know you can make ice cream in about 20 seconds in your blender?!? You don’t even need an ice cream maker!! Seriously! Okay, well not entirely seriously. It’s not exactly ice cream. But it sure is as  close as you can get without actually owning an ice cream maker. And if you, like […]
