This was my attempt to make my mom's brownie recipe lower in fat. My family loves them!

Limeabalemon Glaciate

Slightly bitter and extremely refreshing, this is one instance of what I have dubbed blender-miracles. Throw everything in and blend away! Make sure to use a well-ripened banana to add extra sweetness. If the end result is still slightly too bitter, blend in sugar to taste. This pairs nicely with a balsamic salad.

Roasted bananas are great over ice cream, sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar, in a smoothie, or straight out of the air fryer. Made with only 2 ingredients and ready in less than 10 minutes.

Fresh Strawberry Granita

Rating: 4.83 stars

You can make and serve this gorgeous Italian frozen iced dessert anytime, but it's really best enjoyed during the summer months. Not only is it cold and delicious, but it forces you to stick your hot, sweaty face in the freezer four or five times to stir. The technique of using a fork several times to mix the freezing granita results in perfect icy crystals.
