Hello and welcome to The Tasty Alternative! My name is Amber and this blog is a combination of alternative cuisine, organization, green living and holistic healing. You can read more about me and this blog from the links above. I'm just thrilled to create my first post today. I thought it would be fun to kick things off on a sweet note and make one of my daughter's (and son's) favorite desserts, and of course she is helping me out today. Please let me know how you like this delicious and healthy spin one one of my favorite childhood treats.
-1 ripe banana
-1 can of full fat coconut milk (BPA can)
-2 tablespoons of grade B maple syrup (or other sweetener of choice)
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-2 tablespoons carob power (or cacao/cocoa power)
*I am using carob powder here because chocolate aggravates eczema (my son suffers from this skin condition) and overall, chocolate is far too stimulating for my little ones.
1. Blend ingredients in any blender
2. Poor into Popsicle molds and freeze 4-5 hours
