Morning y’all! I totally wish Canada was known for saying y’all because it just sounds so awesome, but when I say it people think I’m kind of lame. Someone let me move to Texas with them so I can use it more often.
My day began with a nice 3 mile walk with my favorite little walking buddy. The best part about our walks these days is the fact that my cat Miley, loves to follow right behind us. So I obviously look like a crazy lady who brings her cat with her on walks. I’m imagining it looks quite odd to others.
Over the weekend, I heard it was National Ice Cream Day. Didn’t know about it? Well, neither did I – which is why I’m celebrating a week late and also not celebrating with actual ice cream. Clearly I know how to celebrate national holidays properly.
If you want an actual ice cream type recipe, see last weeks recipe for Mint Chocolate Ice Cream.
Lately, most of my meals and Snacks have consisted of raw, blended, or frozen treats. It’s pretty obvious why – since it’s Summer after all.
This is a perfect delicious and healthy treat you can enjoy guilt free!
Healthy Vegan Strawberry Frappe
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 2/3 cup almond milk (I use unsweetened)
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- a handful of frozen cucumber cubes or ice (about 6 cubes)
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
- Serve immediately!
*For my shakes lately, I’ve been switching out ice cubes with cucumber cubes. Do make these you basically wash, dry, and dice the cucumber, place them in individual plastic baggies and freeze the cubes until you’re ready to make a shake or smoothie.
Trust me on this frappe. It’s lush and refreshing – it will rock your socks on (since you know, it’s kind of chilly when you eat a frozen treat). I swear my jokes aren’t always so lame.
Anyways, since Summer is in full swing it’s the perfect opportunity to experiment with lots of raw treats. Cold, fresh, and healthy recipes are right up my alley. Is there anything you’d like me to try and recreate – I’m all for any suggestions and ideas!
With only five ingredients, it’s super simple to make and the good thing about shakes like this, is that you can mix it up by using different berries or frozen fruits in this recipe. I just tried a mango version and it was also awesome.
Strange, but good tastes oh so delicious!
