Berry Nice Cream Sundae

Berry Nice Cream Sundae

A little story on this healthy treat:

Last weekend, I decided to turn my favorite protein smoothie into a nice cream sundae.  I stood on the counter to grab my food processor from the top shelf (short people problems), and took out my ever growing supply of frozen banana slices from the freezer.  I blended and transferred most of the refreshing soft serve into a container to freeze a little more… I wanted that perfect scoop-able texture, but I couldn’t resist trying a few spoonfuls first!

 

 

A few minutes later, while my nice cream was still freezing up, a couple of friends invited me along to get açaí bowls.  Don’t get me wrong, I love açaí bowls.  BUT I had that delicious nice cream waiting in the freezer, and I was so excited to dig in!  I just felt so conflicted!

Then, I decided to be a slightly weird (and smart?) person and bring my own treat to the açaí bowl restaurant.  So, I sat outside in the beautiful sunshine with my friends and chatted, enjoying my sundae.  Naturally, I had to try their bowls to compare, and I have to say I’m glad I brought mine 🙂  Anyway, it was a fun and relaxing afternoon, and I highly recommend enjoying some quality nice cream with some quality people who make you feel good.  Let this be a reminder to treat yourself every once in a while and always make time to relax and refresh.
