WELCOME! We are so
glad you are here!

Most women don’t have supportive Christian women in their lives mentoring them.

We spur women on with the Word of God so that we can approach the Bible with confidence, share Jesus with grace, and speak chatter that matters in a noisy world.

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on…” Hebrews 10:24

Banana Avocado "Ice Cream"

I don't know about you, but when 8:30 rolls around in my house something terrible happens. It's as if I haven't eaten for the entire day. I must get my paws on some food. Not just any kind of food either, ice cream kind of food. My husband, while being a gem most of the time, doesn't always appreciate traipsing out into the 25 degree outdoors for a seemingly unnecessary dessert (Though he has not been pregnant ever. He will never truly understand the gravity that is a craving.) Truthfully, my waistline isn't really approving either... I recently received a Cuisinart food processor for Christmas from the in-laws. This thing is seriously amazing in so many ways. You can chop a million things at once, make banana ice cream, make dough, make smoothies. But I digress. In the little cookbook that comes with the food processor it has a recipe for Banana Ice Cream. The recipe consists of frozen bananas, some vanilla, and cream. Of course I like to make a few changes and complicate just about everything I do in the kitchen, so this little concoction was hatched-- Banana Avocado "Ice Cream."

This is a super simple recipe (no matter how much I tried to complicate things.) Simply add frozen banana, ripe avocado, vanilla, milk, a dash of cinnamon, and a dollop of maple syrup if you are feeling especially dangerous.

Process until smooth and creamy, like soft-serve ice cream.

And eat! Eat like it's not ice cream, because it's NOT, and therefore in my mind it is virtually calorie free (though I will admit, that is a lie!) It is loads healthier than eating ice cream from a tub which likely includes high fructose corn syrup in its ingredient list. It also has a more unique flavor with the avocado and cinnamon, which makes you feel a teeny bit classier whilst you stuff your face in sweats on the couch. :D
