The Veggie Fairies are back with some yummy goodies that have limited or no sugar!!  Yes, it is possible to have a treat without the sugar!!

Healthy Ice Cream Sandwiches (Strawberry Banana)

Thank you Divas Can Cook for the yummy recipe!  


  • 5 ripe bananas
  • ¾ cup sweet diced strawberries (can use other fruits)
  • 11 sheets of graham crackers (I used Organic cinnamon sugar & chocolate)


  • Slice bananas into disk.
  • Place in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
  • Freeze for 2 hours or until frozen.
  • Place banana slices in a food processor and blend until creamy.
  • Scoop banana into a large bowl and fold in dice strawberries.
  • Line an 8 x 8 dish with parchment paper.
  • Spread banana mixture into the pan in an even layer.
  • Cut banana mixture into squares (use a graham cracker as a pattern)
  • Assemble ice cream sandwiches.

Wrap in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag to store.


Homemade Healthy Fruit Snacks


2/3 cup fresh lemon juice or fresh orange juice (if you don’t like sour go with orange, but I definitely prefer the lemon!)

2/3 cup frozen or fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries are all great.)

1 – 2 Tbs honey

5 Tbs gelatin



  1. Pour juice and berries into a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until berries become tender and begin to soften.
  2. Add honey and stir until completely incorporated. You will want the fruit to dissolve quite a bit until you have a compote.
  3. Turn the heat off, and quickly whisk in gelatin one tablespoon at a time. Whisk vigorously until completely incorporated, mixing the gelatin in very gradually to avoid lumps.
  4. Puree mixture using a immersion blender or small blender
  5. Pour into a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 glass dish. Refrigerate until set (30 minutes to an hour). Cut in small squares.


3 Ingredient 1 Minute Flourless Chocolate Cake

Just 3 Ingredients (or four if you add the zucchini!) and one minute is needed to whip up this delicious moist, fluffy and satisfying chocolate cake!


  • 1 small extra ripe banana (almost brown is perfect)
  • 1 small egg (for the vegan option, use 1 flax egg)*
  • 1-3 T dark cocoa powder (I like a rich taste and usually go 3 T)
  • 1/4 cup zucchini, chopped (optional)



1.  In a high speed blender or food processor, pulse the banana, egg, cocoa powder and chopped zucchini until a very fine batter is formed.

2.  Grease a small cereal bowl or mug very well.  Pour the batter in there and cook in the microwave for 60 seconds or longer, depending on desired texture.

3. Top with fresh berries and whipped cream!!  Yum!





All these delicious sugar free goodies are tried and true in my home!!  It feels good to feed my kids these treats knowing that they are not terrible for their growing bodies!!  Don’t get me wrong, we eat plenty of sugar (sadly); it’s just nice to take a break from it every now and then!



I love to hear from you.  Email any thoughts, questions, comments to me at!
