But as this new year continues we are wanting to take steps in the healthier direction. What if I told you that we have a ice cream alternative that’s HEALTHY. Say what?! Today, we will walk you step by step on how to make Peanut butter chocolate nice cream.

Let’s get started!

What you’ll need:

-At least 2 frozen bananas. (If they are not frozen, this will not work. We broke up the bananas into several pieces and stored in a tuba wear dish.)

– 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

-1 1/2- 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter

-blender

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetStart by placing the banana pieces one by one into your blender. Pulse these chunks little by little until you have a smooth consistency. It’s okay to add a bit of water or almond milk to help the blending.Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

A festival is more than just live music and a good time; it’s a celebration of life. Almost every country has their signature celebration and when that time of year comes around, they go big. We were ecstatic to kick off festival season with Coachella but little did we know there’s so many more! Kicking off the new year in China and ending with a Santa Run in Wales. There’s a few that are a bit odd and others that I’m adding to my bucket list right now. Side note: the dates are when the festivals begin in 2015, so start planning now!
