Delicious and Healthy Dessert

purple ice cream ingredients

What if I told you those three ingredients pictured above, when combined together make a delicious and healthy dessert. Would you believe me? When talking about dessert, delicious AND healthy aren’t usually used in the same sentence, we often sacrifice one or the other.

I used 3 ingredients, purple sweet potato, frozen banana and unsweetened almond milk to make this delicious, purple ice cream sorbet. I put it to the test with my biggest critic, my 3 1/2 year old daughter. She not only loved the color (slight purple obsession), she asked for a second serving! It’s a great way to get some fruit and veggie servings in (while satisfying your sweet tooth) for the little ones and for yourself.

-1/2 medium sized purple sweet potato (cooked, should be cold from refrigerator, not hot or frozen)
-1 small frozen banana (it’s important that it is fully frozen to get that creamy texture)
– 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
