I think it’s safe to that summer is officially here in Iowa and this guilt free strawberry freeze is perfect for the warm days! It’s been in the steamy 90’s the last three days and call me crazy, but I’m already over it! I’m already tired of sweating! I’m already tired of not being able to have the windows open, but it is Iowa, so I’m not sure what I expect anymore! But, I digress…it’s summertime and here in our home, we are in full baseball, camping, and summer mode! The boys have work, summer school, weight lifting, baseball, etc.
I’m trying to eat clean throughout all the summer fun/business, I really am! And one thing I’ve found since eating clean is that my system can’t handle high sugar, high fat things any longer. My gut can’t seem to process it and I end up feeling awful! However that hasn’t stopped me from having cravings. And as it’s gotten to be so warm here, I just want ice cream!! I want ice cream, strawberries, and chocolate! Not a bad combo, right?? So, how can I accomplish this without throwing all my clean eating efforts away?? I came up with this treat, Guilt Free Strawberry Freeze!
- 1, 5.3oz container plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup frozen chopped strawberries
- 2 T honey
- ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 t vanilla extract
- Whisk together in a bowl the yogurt, honey, almond milk, and vanilla.
- Pour into a small single sized blender with frozen strawberries and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a freezer safe bowl and freeze.
This recipe is so easy and a great cool treat! It does freeze very solid, so you will need to pull it out of the freezer a good 30 – 45 minutes before you want to enjoy it. It also isn’t incredibly sweet which is part of it’s appeal to me! You can eat it plain, drizzle with chocolate syrup (a very little), a little Red-Whip, chopped bananas, fresh strawberries, the choices are endless! I hope you enjoy it a much as I do!
