Super Simple Soft Serve Ice Cream

Super Simple soft Serve Ice Cream
Oh did I say HEALTH and oh so good! Hubby loves it!!
For Two.
2 Frozen Bananas cut up a bit.
A splash of any type of milk.
Put in Food Prosessor and blend till smooth.
That is it.
You can add a spoon full of peanut butter, or berries and top with a little Chocolet Syrup or nuts. Yum!
I also make mine with Mangos. Peeled, cut up and frozen of course.
Try it with other fruit. But if you add banana it is oh so creamy.

Pumpkin Desert-real food

Pumpkin  Desert- low cal
1 29 oz. can of pumpkin
1/2 cup of honey {more or less to taste}
dash of cinnamon
dash of ginger {optional- along with any pumpkin pie seasonings you like}

Stir ingredients together in a saucepan over low heat until warm. Serve warm or chilled. I love it warmed. I portion out my pumpkin in a few 6-8 ounce containers for the week.
It's so warm and filling! It is real food and it's good for you, and feels indulgent when you can't have a sugar-filled dessert.
