Banana Soft Serve w/ Mango, Raspberries & Almonds (Food Wine & Thyme)

Hello there fellow free spirit eaters!

You may have noticed I've gone MIA... once again.
I recently updated my photography website and joined an incredible site, Model Mayhem, for photographers, models, make up artists, designers, stylists etc to find one another and possibly work together. Thanks to MM, I have booked up this weekend and the next. What a blessing.

That made me realize there needs to be some changes around here on the blog. No longer will this only be a guilt free food blog, but a Food, Fitness and Photography blog. Photography will include fashion, chef portfolios, architecture, landscapes, events, travel, children, couples, etc. I'm still debating on whether to change the title to match my new photography biz, Food.Life.Art. I'm excited to have my blog completely redesigned. It's been a long time coming. So please bare with me as I begin to make these changes, and continue to follow my dreams.

Take a peek at my new photography site!

For guest post Friday, Kathy over at Food, Wine and Thyme shares a quick and easy soft serve recipe! Summer isn't over yet folks!

Ice cream is pure, simple and delicious. It brings feelings of happiness and memories of childhood. It comforts, consoles and puts a smile on our faces.  As adults there are many reasons to why we can’t enjoy ice cream the same way we did when we were children, and that’s why I love this simple banana soft serve “ice cream”.  Simple to make this dessert can be customized numerous ways. All you have to do is freeze bananas and then puree them in a blender. Change the flavors by freezing other fruits and berries and using in combination with bananas.

One of my favorite ways to have this dessert is to add fruit and berries as toppings.  I hope you enjoy this delicious Banana Soft Serve with Mango, Coconut, Raspberries and Almonds.


2 frozen banana’s (peel the skin before freezing)
2 tbsp low fat milk, flavor of your choice
¼ vanilla fat free yogurt (I love Chobani)
½ mango, cubed
1 tbsp shredded coconut
¼ cup raspberries
1 tsp sliced almond

1. Blend first three ingredients together.
2. Top with mango, raspberries, almonds and coconut.

Enjoy J
