You may be noticing a funfetti theme here. And you know what, I’m not ashamed of it. Who doesn’t love something with bright multi-colored sprinkles in it. But the best part about this recipe is the fact that it is made with bananas. I know what you’re thinking – “Ok, then it must be disgusting. Why would I eat it?” Well, yes, you’re right, it’s not the same as ice cream. BUT it still tastes delicious in its own way (and you can trust me because normally I’m a doubter when people try to make desserts healthy).
I just returned from ten days in Spain, where I did a LOT of eating, and am officially in detox mode. This salad is a great summer salad because it has a light and refreshing dressing, but the potatoes and chickpeas help make it filling!
If you’re not taking advantage of all of the fresh produce available right now, you’re missing out. Everything is so much better this time of year. This salad takes advantage of both fresh corn and zucchini, and the dressing keeps the salad light!
As I’ve probably mentioned before, I find easy healthy recipes that I like and then I tend to make them a LOT for dinner on weeknights. This is a new discovery, and we’ve already made it three times. In addition to being delicious, it all cooks in one pan and makes for easy clean up. Plus, you can alter the toppings to your liking, and can also serve it in tortillas if you want to make tacos. So go ahead, make it once. And I promise you’ll start making it all the time!
I get it, we’re all busy and you can’t always spend a lot of time cooking. But if you still want to bring your own lunch to work, here is a salad we’ve started making that you can very easily prep at night.
Next up in my Wednesday party appetizer posts: 7-Layer Dip. I live for 7-Layer Dip. I love bringing it to parties, and end up eating most of it. But, after a few people dig in, it starts to look messy, and kind of gross. So how do you solve this problem? You put them in individually sized cups. Plus, they’re so festive looking.
There’s this restaurant in Carmel, California, that has the world’s most amazing chocolate mousse. It comes in this big pot with spoons to share and it is to die for. I didn’t know I liked chocolate mousse until I had it at this restaurant (La Bicyclette in case you’re ever in the area). So I’ve been wanting to try to make it myself. This mousse I made didn’t have the same consistency, but it was just as chocolate-y and delicious.
