Healthy dessert for kids? Count us in!

Ingredients

1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups frozen sliced bananas
1/4 cup frozen strawberries

Directions:

Place the yogurt, cocoa powder, honey and vanilla extract in a blender and quickly combine the ingredients for a few seconds, using the lowest setting to puree.

Add the frozen banana and strawberries to the mixture. Puree on the lowest setting for 20 seconds.

Scrape down the sides and puree again. Repeat the process until the mixture is smooth.

Serve.

Note: Bananas can take a day up to 4 hours to freeze well, so take three or four bananas, slice them about 1/2″ thick, freeze them in a Ziploc bag (make sure to lay the slices out flat in the bag when you freeze so they don¹t stick together) and leave them in the freezer so you can always make this treat on a moment’s notice.

Use the lowest setting to puree strawberries  to avoid the ice cream from getting too loose and so it has more of a true ice cream texture.
