Healthier Ice Cream (3 Ways)

Sometimes you have to do the real deal and enjoy every creamy, delicious bite.

But if your family is like mine, the request for ice cream in the summer is almost daily and I have to find alternate cool treats.

Here are three alternatives to traditional dairy (sugar and preservative laden) ice cream when you want to mix it up:

Ice Cream Sundaes

For the ice cream base, I love using banana ice cream (plain, with almond butter or with cocoa powder for chocolate).

We turn these into fun sundaes by topping them with banana slices or blueberries, chopped peanuts, (or chia "sprinkles") and "chocolate" syrup.

For the syrup, I used organic peanut butter chocolate powder. You simply add a teaspoon or two of water to get the consistency you want and you have a delicious, lower sugar syrup.

When I can, I prefer to make my own coconut whipped cream.
