The warm weather lately has been giving me so much life and putting a pep in my step! So of course I immediately start drinking more smoothies and making nice cream. If you haven’t heard of nice cream its basically just fruit that is blended and frozen into ice cream form! I love to make it into bites on a little crust made from nuts and dates. So of course I had to take my favorite California Giant Berry Farm Strawberries and blend them with banana and peanut butter and pour it over a peanut butter cookie crust! Could anything really be better?
When I was making these I had some extra nice cream in the food processor so I gave it to ruthie and she devoured it!! Then I realized I hadn’t given her strawberry chunks yet so I chopped up some for her and she was obsessed. Now that Ruth is in school and has had a cold and an ear infection in the first 2 months, I am really trying to make sure her immunity is on point. Did you know strawberries have tons of Vitamin C? They do! Between that and the fact that they have fiber and antioxidants, they are the perfect snack for kiddos and adults alike. So if that doesn’t make you want to run out to the store and grab some Cal Giant Berries, I don’t know what will! Okay maybe making these PB & J Nice Cream Bites?
