I was toying with calling this “soft serve” but it didn’t feel right. It’s certainly not ice cream, and “smoothie” also kind of missed the mark. So I figured “frozen treat” was the best I could do. It’s cold. It’s a treat. So there you go.
Normally I’m not a big fruit-eater but today I was needing a bit of an afternoon fuel-up. This morning I hit up the local bootcamp gym for an hour of grueling exercise. Super fun but pretty tiring. And then I decided to unwind with an hour of heated yoga. Needless to say, I was pretty ready for a nap. So I give you my afternoon, post-nap “pick-up”.
Pineapple Coconut Frozen Treat

a few tablespoons almond milk
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
dash of salt
pinch of lime zest
- Add pineapple, banana, coconut cream, and almond milk into a small food processor or high-powered blender.
