If you’re anything like me, you crave ice cream any time of the year (even when the temperatures drop low)! But don’t worry. I’m not falling off track here. We just got started in the New Year after all! 😄
Instead, I’m choosing my Gingerbread Banana Nicecream Recipe that will supply us with vital nutrients and make the digestive process infinitely better than ordinary ice cream!! This is because we’ll be avoiding dairy and processed sugar that’s found in typical ice creams—causing bloating, acne and digestive issues. Ugh.
So when you’re craving something cool, creamy, and on the sweeter side, opt for ingredients that are bursting with nature’s nutrients, fighting antioxidants, and natural sugar flavorings!
Now, when you think of gingerbread, you may be thinking of those cute little gingerbread men, or those sweet little houses coated with sugary bits of candy you decorated as a child. Not today!! Today we are building gingerbread flavors with buttery rich pecans, sweet-earthy cinnamon, and sweet-smoky flavor infused vanilla.
The mixture of this trio, all smothered up inside this frozen banana treat, is just heavenly and good for you! Let’s take a look at why I chose these specific beauty ingredients…
Pecans are pretty amazing—with their healthy unsaturated fat—just a handful a day can lower “bad” cholesterol. Containing more than 19 vitamins and minerals (including vitamins A, B, and E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc).
These buttery gems are also rich in age defying antioxidants. In fact, pecans are one of the most antioxidant-rich tree nuts and rank as one of the top 15 foods with the highest levels of antioxidants.
When it comes to weight loss, it would seem like we would want to stay clear in consuming nuts but with a balance consumption of raw organic nuts (like pecans), you can actually enhance satiety and increase your metabolism. Again, it’s about balance and eating the right kinds of nuts.
Here are a few other reasons why adding pecans to your diet could be beneficial:
You may have heard me talk about cinnamon on many occasions, since I do love adding it to many of my afternoon smoothie snacks. Here’s a recap of some of its benefits:
When it comes to deciding what kind of vanilla to purchase, first and foremost, be sure to steer clear of artificial vanilla, which is made with pure vanillin diluted with water, and alcohol.
Even though the vanillin is chemically identical to that found in real vanilla, it’s being extracted from coal tar (or wood pulp), as a by-product of paper production and extremely inexpensive to produce.
Try buying an organic brand from your local health store or market, and never hesitate to ask advice on which brands are the best quality. This is one ingredient where I don’t feel bad splurging on a little, since it really adds so much flavor to my recipes.
When it comes to it’s benefits, check out the list below:
So it’s time to invest in a good bottle of vanilla and know that you’re feeding your body with the best of ingredients, while enjoying it’s wonderful aroma and unique taste! 😜
Being a part of the Beauty Detox community, you will have gathered just how much I love bananas, and how often I use them in my recipes. In my book, Radical Beauty, I share just how important bananas are in filling our bodies with vitamins, minerals, fiber and long-term energy.
Bananas are high in potassium (about 600 mg per medium banana), potassium (balance the effects of sodium on your body), and fiber (3 grams in a medium-sized one). Bananas also contain vitamins A, B, E, K and C as well as 6 mcg of folic acid—essential for red blood cell formation. (All of this comes in a tasty package that has about 105 calories with 0 grams of fat).
Bananas really are a force to be reckoned with, with:
Overall, bananas are a perfect addition to your The Beauty Detox Solution plan—being natural and packed with amazing vitamins and phytonutrients that other diets may be lacking in.
