Strawberry Banana Nice Cream Recipe by Tammi Avallone
As the year rapidly approaches the summer, it’s hard not to think about how to treat our small bundles of love.
On the topic of summer and finding retreat in a snack comes this recipe that can help cool your little ones while letting them enjoy the flavors of peak strawberry season.
Treat your dog with this simple and delicious nice cream recipe!
I want to mention that this wouldn't be suitable for those who are trying to lose weight or have health issues such as diabetes or pancreatitis.
This recipe makes 2 cups as the one shown in the photo.
You will need to freeze 2 bananas the night before preparing this recipe.
Frozen strawberries are fine but fresh ones are recommended.
In a blender, add strawberries with water and honey. Blend until smooth. You may use this sauce for other recipes too, so be sure to keep any left over sauce in your fridge for up to 1 week or freeze it for up to 3 months.
This sauce is also great for humans, so feel free to enjoy some with your dessert or breakfast!
You only need one ingredient to make the perfect nice cream: frozen bananas. Blend until smooth and add strawberries for extra flavor.
Depending on the consistency of your nice cream, you may serve it right after blending or freeze for a few extra minutes to ensure a more solid texture.
Dairy-rich products can cause vomiting and diarrhea as most dogs are lactose intolerant. That is why this alternative is ideal for your canine treats. To make it, you simply need half a can of coconut cream. It has to be very cold, make sure to refrigerate it the day before making this recipe.
In your stand or hand mixer, blend until soft peaks form. For better results, place the bowl of your mixer in the freezer for 40 minutes before making.
In your glass or cup of choice, place 2 scoops of nice cream and top with whipped cream and your strawberry sauce.
To give this treat the perfect crunchy texture, top with dog biscuits or crumbled graham crackers. Watch out for artificial sweeteners or harmful ingredients in human cookies!
For the strawberry sauce:
1 cup strawberries
1 tbsp honey
1/4 cup water
2 frozen bananas
1/2 cup strawberries
½ can of Coconut cream
Crumbled dog biscuits
Prepare the strawberry sauce by blending strawberries, honey and water. Set aside.
1. Blend bananas and strawberries. If needed, add coconut milk.
