Maca Ginger Nice Cream

Is it hot enough out there for ya? I don’t know what it’s like in your neighbourhood but it’s been hot, hot, hot over here.  Summer is in full swing!  What better way to spend a sunny afternoon than sitting outside chowing down on some nice cream!? Nice cream is one of my favourite things to have; I always make sure I have a huge bag of frozen bananas on hand so I can whip this up anytime.  Without all the extra fat, sugar and dairy, I don’t feel guilty about having a big bowl!

This one is sweet and spicy.  It combines bananas, ginger, honey, chocolate and maca powder for that boost of superfood power!
