Breakfast "Ice Cream"

April 24, 2014

One of my favorite textures and all around foods to eat is ice cream.

I bought a Yonana Maker last year thinking this could transfer that ice cream love to frozen fruit, but was really disappointed in the recipes I tried. 

I did make a pie, but other than that the texture of banana through a Yonana just wasn't appealing. A blog friend I follow on Instagram was on a Yonana roll and posted her desserts nearly every night. It inspired me and I busted out the Yonana again.

After playing around, realizing what textures I like and didn't like, and figuring out just what would fit through he contraption... I came up with my go to recipe. 

It's also just my favorite smoothie, minus the greens, frozen completely and tossed in the Yonana.

Breakfast "Ice Cream

Things you need::
Yonana Maker (or good food processor)
Ice Cube Tray

1/2 banana, frozen
1/2 cup Frozen Tropical Mixed Fruit (frozen foods sections with fruits)
1/2 cup strawberry keifer (I use Lifeway)
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup orange Juice
1 tsp chia seeds

The night before make sure all fruit in prepped and in the freezer. Combine protein powder with the orange juice and freeze in ice cube trays, pour keifer into ice cube trays as well.

When you are ready to make your Yonana ice cream, take out the fruit, remove protein orange juice and keifer from the ice cube tray and all it to sit on the counter and soften just slightly while you assemble your Yonana Maker. This is usually no more than 2-3 minutes tops for me. Next place a bowl under the opening in your Yonana Maker, turn it on, and being pushing all of the frozen fruit and ice cubes through the machine. When you're done be sure to take the machine apart to scrape out all of the wonderful "ice cream" that is still stuck in there. Sprinkle with chia seeds and enjoy!

This is by far one of my favorite breakfasts when I want something sweet. 

If I'm just in the mood for a smoothie I don't freeze the juice or keifer and combine all other ingredients the same but add in kale and blend. If it needs more liquid I add in vanilla almond milk or a little more orange juice.
