Guess What??? Yep, that’s right! It’s popsicle season! How did you guess?

It is probably because you are an amazing human being! AND you want to fuel your body with clean food to stay super amazing or become even more super amazing! Am I right?

This month marks the one year anniversary of my blog. I am so excited!!! I have shared over 100 recipes with you all in the past year to help you reach your goals, as well as stories of Ming, Ming! Whether it is improving your health overall, better digestion, wanting more energy, cleaning up your diet, eating Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Real Food, or healing from SIBO and other digestive difficulties, I am so glad you are here!

Today I am sharing a delicious, easy popsicle recipe that I know you are going to absolutely love! There is no garbage or artificial anything in them, just four ingredients and they are pretty too! I used popsicle molds to make these, but I have also made them in little paper cups with popsicle sticks inserted into them from the local craft store!

Mango Banana Blender Ice Cream

This creamy blender ice cream is a guaranteed way to satisfy a sweet tooth and a craving, and it only takes seconds in the blender! Three ingredients is all you need, and you will have a nutritious, figure friendly ice cream without the guilt! All you need is Bananas, Mango and Vanilla Extract. I always keep frozen bananas on hand, because they are so creamy when blended into smoothies.

Most everyone knows that bananas are a good source of potassium, but did you also know they are a source of vitamin B6 which our body does not store and is used to make antibodies to fight infection? Bananas are also a source of vitamin C and have 3 grams of fiber each.  The Mango packs a punch of vitamin C  (96% in an average sized mango) as well as vitamin A, fiber and some calcium.

Banana Pineapple Coconut Leather

Are you ready for a portable treat that is oh so satisfyingly chewy and good for you? Was that a yea? Then these scrumptious snacks are going to make your day! I promised you some fruit roll ups, and this is the first one with more to come. The first time I made these, they were devoured right away, and I had to guard the last one for myself. They aren’t difficult, but you do have to wait for the dehydrator to do it’s job, so it requires patience……I am working on that in many areas of my life. I love the way they make the room smell like I am baking banana bread while they are dehydrating. It is like natural potpourri, but better because you get to eat it!

Banana Coconut Leather for blog

Banana Coconut Leather


Turn your food dehydrator to 135º degrees. Line six dehydrator trays with parchment or teflon inserts.


6 Ripe Bananas

1 Cup Chopped Fresh Pineapple

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

2 Tablespoons Honey

2 Teaspoons Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

Add Bananas, Pineapple, Himalayan Pink Salt, Honey, Cinnamon and Lemon Juice to a high speed blender, like this one, and blend until smooth. Add the coconut and blend for 30 seconds. You still want small bits of coconut in it. Pour the batter onto the six trays evenly dispersing.

Now, pick up the tray and tip and swirl in a circular motion to spread the batter evenly. Dehydrate for seven hours, flipping them after six hours. They can go a little longer and be fine too. I have left them for ten hours, they will just be more crunchy instead of chewy. Remove from the dehydrator, cool and roll up with strips of parchment, or you can store them flat. These are a wonderful, yummy, healthy snack! My children’s friends are so envious when they bring them in their lunches! If you like these, stay tuned for more roll up recipes!
