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 large ripe banana
-1 can of full fat this or this
-3 tablespoons of grade B maple syrup (also sub: honey, coconut sugar or coconut nectar)
-2 teaspoons vanilla
-2 tablespoons raw carob power (or raw cacao 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. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze 4-5 hours
