Salted Peanut Butter and Chocolate Nice Cream

This is HANDS DOWN the best version of "Nice Cream" I have ever tried!  I honestly don't think there was a difference in taste between this and real ice cream (and I am an ice cream snob!)

Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think!  


  • 2 bananas, chopped up in chunks and frozen
  • 1 TBL maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 TBL peanut butter
  • Flax milk (or other unsweetened non-dairy milk)
  • Enjoy Life chocolate chips


Place the frozen bananas in the food processor along with a couple TBL of the milk.  Start to pulse until the the ingredients start to blend.  Add in maple syrup and vanilla extra and turn the food processor on high speed.  Slowly drop in more milk until everything has blended together and is a thick, creamy consistency.  Add in your chocolate chips and pulse a few more times until they are mixed in well.  

Put in a freezer-safe container and leave in the freezer for about 30-60 minutes while it firms up.  Then prepare yourself to experience the deliciousness and enjoy!  

The Importance of getting a Good Night's Sleep

Part of feeling your best is ensuring you are getting sufficient sleep.  This means you really have to make sleep a priority and set up your daily routine in a way that allows you to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep (8 is the ultimate target, 6 is the bare minimum).  
Many people don't realize how important it is to get a good night's sleep, and often mask the effects (from lack of sleep) by running on caffeine or other stimulants to get through the day. You are just putting a band-aid over the wound here, your body needs proper rest for so many reasons.  
Consequences of lack of sleep:
Inadequate sleep is a health epidemic these days.  It can result in harm to a person's own health as it is tied to mental illness, stress, obesity, hypertension and diabetes.  It can even cause harm to others - overtired drivers are more likely to cause an  accident.  
Now here are some of the great benefits pf getting a good night of sleep:  
  • Improved concentration 
  • Ability to make better decisions
  • Increased energy for daily activities as well as exercise
  • Supports weight-loss
  • Stronger immune system
  • Improved memory
So make sure you start making your sleep a top health priority  It is just as important as eating healthy and exercising! 

Tip: Set yourself up with a relaxing bed time routine (drink tea, read, take a bath, meditate, etc) to help your brain shut down before you hit the hay.  Try to keep off the phone, tv and computer the last 30-60 minutes before bed time since these electronic devices are very stimulating to your brain.  Also keep away from the late night snacking since that can also cause a poor quality of sleep.
