Hot and Healthy

I’m just like you….busy, busy, busy. I don’t have time to make six trips to the grocery store in one week because I forgot this item or that item. That’s why I love the Copps and Pick N Save website so much. It gives me recipe ideas I can make for the week and a place where I can create my own grocery list of the things I’ll need for those recipes. All I do is print it out and I’m sure not to forget anything. Here’s an easy recipe that I’m excited to try this weekend. I’m having a little fire pit party and this will be great for dessert.

1 whole banana
3 cups frozen strawberries, cut into equal pieces
½ cup frozen cranberry juice cocktail from concentrate
1-2 tablespoons honey
Peel the banana and wrap it in plastic. Freeze for at least 1-1/2 hours until solid
Place strawberries in a food processor. Process with on/off pulses until finely chopped; stop several times to scrape down the sides of the container. Process the mixture for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth.
With machine running, add the juice concentrate. Process for 1 minute, or until completely smooth.
Slice the frozen banana. With the machine running, slowly add the slices. Process for at least 1 minute, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Sweeten to taste with honey; process briefly.
Serve immediately or transfer to a chilled storage container and freeze for 30 minutes
Yield: serves 6
Prep time: 90 minutes
