Re: 1-Ingredient Ice-Cream for the Healthy!

Bananas. Yep, thats the one ingredient! Healthy and yummy, right?

What you'll need:
Preferably small blender or food processor
3 medium sized bananas for approx. 8 oz.
a freezer
a ziploc bag (freezer bags are best)
a sunny day is helpful as well

Additions:
strawberries
honey
whey protein powder
Anything you want!

You'll need your bananas to be browned slightly. (Little brown spots, not the whole thing black/brown.) This is easiest if you leave them outside for about an hour or two. Once browned, open them and cut them up into 4-10 pieces. You will have 12-30 pieces of banana. (If you are using 3) Stick them in the freezzer overnight, or until frozen (If you want to add strawberries or other fruit, stick them in the freezer as well.) Pull then out, and stick all your fruit/optional items in the food processor. Add a tablespoon or two of water. Blend until VERY smooth. I mean, REALLY smooth. Try and keep the processing time under 8 minutes, or else they begin to defrost, then it's not really ice cream.

I just made a plain banana batch and ate it, I also made a banana-strawberry batch and stuck it in the freezer. YUM!

(Idea came from http://www.instructables.com/id/1-ingredient-Ice-Cream/#)

(EDIT: Thanks for merging Chris, didn't know APK had a recipe thread.)

Zucchini Muffins

Mix the following DRY ingredients together:
1 C Whole wheat flour
1 C Oat bran
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda

In a separate bowl mix these WET ingredients together:
2 whisked eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 C Agave nectar
1/3 C veg oil

Gently combine WET and DRY until just mixed (too much mixing makes the muffins tough).
Fold in 1-1/2 C shredded zucchini

Add dark chocolate chips, dried berries, raisins or nuts if you choose.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

My peanut butter and jelly sandwich craving solution.

2-4 tsp. of all natural peanut butter
blackberries/blueberries
1 slice of whole grain bread.

Smear the peanutbutter on the bread, stick the berries in the peanutbutter.

Quick and easy snack and even though it has one slice of bread, it takes away the jelly and replaces it with something natural.
I eat a lot of food.

Chicken:
- 5 to 6 pounds of chicken
- half cup of steak sauce
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- lotsa spicy chicken seasoning

Mix seasonings together, and pour them into a large pan. Drop the chicken in this pan, and slosh it around a bit to spread out all the sauce. Grill. Eat some now, refrigerate the rest. Should last you the week... Maybe.

Steak:
- 1 to 2 pounds of top round
- lotsa steak spices

Mix in a fashion similar to the chicken. Grill. Etc. Will last you 30 seconds. Tops.

Hard Boiled Eggs:
- water
- eggs

Boil water in a pot. Put 6-8 eggs in the water. Wait about 7-9 minutes. Take the eggs out of the water. Peel before eating.

Tuna:
- can of tuna
- can opener
- steak sauce

Open can of tuna; drain. Add steak sauce, because tuna tastes like crap without it.

Cottage Cheese:
- container of cottage cheese
- fruit and nuts, etc.

Open container of cottage cheese, and put some into a bowl. Add fruits and nuts. Add steak sauce if necessary.




OKAY! I'll admit to it! Maybe I'm not the best cook! Just maybe!


Thanks for sharing. For sure, I will try this one!
