Who wants ice cream? Summer is here and I am looking forward to go to the beach to get some tan and relax. A day at the beach is a perfect excuse for an ice cream, everyone's favorite. However, we all know that some ice creams can derail our daily efforts to look amazing.

 

Our healthy salads, yoga classes or afternoon running’s, you can kiss them goodbye after a dance with our sweet temptation. Do not fear my girls, for those with a sweet tooth I have the perfect solution.

Sit down on your chair, grab your tablet or cellphone, enjoy the view and let me give you some ideas.

First, a childhood memory, who does not remember “raspados”.  Now that I think about it, those ice creams are calorie friendly, if you go easy with the syrup…. Hahaha.  

For those who are not familiar with “raspado”, in Colombia we have an artisan ice cream, it is made from a block of ice then it is scraped till you get a scoop grained ice, and in the end it is sweetened with  sugar syrup the flavors are usually fruits. I love it! I know what you're thinking, is Claudia suggesting "raspado" is the solution!.... hahaha  no let’s keep reading.

Traditional ice creams are fill with sugar and other artificial ingredients, that is why people relate ice cream with getting weight, but it does not have to be in that way, there are alternatives.

ICE CREAM RECIPE

 

Let me introduce you banana ice cream, perfect solution for those who are looking for healthy options.

 

- Choose a ripe banana for a sweet taste.
- Peel the banana and cut it into slices.
- Freeze the slices for 2 hours.
- Remove the slices from the freezer and mix it in the blender with a sweetener such as cocoa powder.
- Put it back in the freezer for 1 hour.
- And Voilà ready to enjoy!
