Ugh, today I started a 21 day no junk food challenge. It’s only been a few hours but I am craving everything on the list. Every single item–if only I could have a peanut butter, chocolate, gummi bear sandwich (on white bread) with a side of chips and donuts washed down with some diet soda.
But I can’t.
Instead I need to think of ways to eat healthy and be happy instead of what I can’t eat. Of course, it meant I needed to pin recipes to eat and faux ice cream kept popping up. Last night, we huddled around the fridge saying goodbye to our dearest snacks and began searching for a healthy snack. Greg and I love the frozen banana “ice cream” but we didn’t have any frozen bananas but we did have frozen mango and a container yogurt in the fridge.
So we treated the mango like the banana and put it in the food processor with a little yogurt, crossed our fingers and hit “ON”.
Guess what? It turned out fabulous! The mango tasted like a sorbet and filled our need for a dessert. We have enough for at least one more night’s worth of dessert. Now if you’re like me and attempting to eat healthy, consider this tasty dessert– it’s perfect for a summer evening.
