What a wonderful weekend. Busy – but wonderful! It was the first weekend in a long time where I had no where to go, and it was awesome. I still had work to do, but my fun work – recipe development! I have so many great recipes coming up: Argentinian flank steak with a spicy giardiniera chimichurri sauce (that is 1 point!), strawberry and rhubarb scones, smoky jalapeno pizza with strawberries and basil . . . but today, I am sharing this red velvet nice cream.
I love the Safe + Fair brownie mix, but each brownie is 11 smart points. Not to say that it isn’t both point worthy AND insulin worthy, it’s an indulgence I can’t do every day.
So I have been trying to use it up slowly but surely. Check out my other recipes using the red velvet mix:
I just want to mention it was 90 degrees outside when I took this picture – ha! But I do like how melty it looks.
Just add the two frozen bananas to a food processor, add 2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk (it’s 30 calories a cup, so I don’t count that) with 1 tablespoon of the dry Safe + Fair red velvet brownie mix. Mix on high for 2 minutes, or until smooth. It will be the consistence of soft serve froyo at that point, but you can freeze and it will be more like ice cream texture.
I love how it turns pink the second it gets wet 😀
I still have more than half a bag of this mix – so many possibilities! If you can think of another recipe I can use this in, please let me know, I am all ears!
Um, turns out the dogs got a couple licks in too – I am the best dog grandma evah!

My stepbet started yesterday – still not too late to join – I think the first week is kind of to get your feet wet – then weeks 2-6 you have to meet your steps every day otherwise you get kicked out of the game – strict but what motivation! Just download the app to your smart phone, and my game code is BIZ.
I’ll leave you with this pic of Rummy – she gets too tire after a few minutes, so Hannah has a . . . dog stroller. Yes, I know – so cute! Sadly both dogs are too big to be in there at the same time, so yesterday it was Rummy’s turn.
Oh, and here’s another recipe I made a few years ago, but perfect for summer produce – ricotta stuffed zucchini in tomato sauce – so good! You can find that recipe here.
