Pecan Nice Cream

Would you believe me if I told you healthy ice cream low in calories, fat and sugar that tasted completely delicious actually exists? It sounds too good to be true, but I promise it’s real! Blended frozen bananas mixed with any flavoring of your choice is the best and healthiest ice cream ever! If you’re thinking it’ll just taste like blended frozen bananas, don’t worry. When you freeze the bananas, the flavor is less strong, so with the added flavorings, you can’t […]

Banana Split Smoothie

Hands down, this is one of my favorite smoothie recipes ever. This smoothie tastes just like a banana split, but it is so much healthier. I have a huge sweet tooth, so when I am dieting or just trying to eat healthier, finding alternative desserts is challenging. This is one of my favorite dessert treats because it tastes like a banana split milkshake, but doesn’t use the unhealthy ice cream. Adding peanuts give it a slightly crunchy consistency, which I love! Just don’t […]

Peanut Butter Banana Shake

SOMEONE decided to sign up for a triathlon happening in a few months… No, not me, actually! It was my husband. I decided to sit this one out and cheer him on. I am, however, training with him. That counts for something, right? We’ve been really good so far, but it’s still early. This morning we woke up at 6 am to go swimming before the work day started and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! […]

Banana in a smoothie? Sure. Coconut? Done that. But Dates?! Could it be? I’ve never really had dates, but I tried them and I liked them.

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 […]

Dirty Snowball Cocktail

Hi Everybody! It’s me! Chef Scott comin’ at ya from snow free and sunny cold St Petersburg.   I want one snow day a year. Just one… maybe 2, but then the next day it’s 70 again and it all goes away.   There were some kids in the chocolate shop today from Connecticut. I asked them what the weather was like. They told me some unholy single digit and I think we all exhaled a little puff of ice […]
