woman feeling guilty for eating ice-cream

You don't ever need to feel guilty about eating your favourite foods, especially if you eat them in moderation and feel hungry. Even if you just really enjoy the food and eat it with intention.

However, if you find you like eating something "not as good for you" like soft ice-cream a little too often for your liking, you might want to look for a healthier recipe that you can substitute even some of the time. Like the yummy ice-"cream" recipe below. I promise it's not just blended frozen bananas like you often see.

Peach Coconut Nice Cream


Peach Coconut Nice Cream

A quick and simple way to satisfy an ice-cream craving any time of the year.
Prep Time:  5 mins

Total Time:  5 mins

Servings:  2



1 cup frozen peaches

4-6 frozen strawberries 

1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk   

2 tablespoons honey or pure maple syrup, or more to taste

1 tsp. vanilla 



  1. Combine the frozen peaches, milk, honey, and vanilla in a Ninja shaker cup a food processor and process until creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides, if necessary. Taste the ice cream, and add more sweetener, if desired.
  2. Note: For a neutral sweet flavor, you can use a mix of honey and pure maple syrup. 
  3. This ice cream can be served directly from the Ninja or food processor for a soft-serve ice cream consistency, or frozen for a few hours for a more hard ice cream. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one month. If frozen, let the ice cream thaw for 10 minutes or so at room temperature.


You can substitute the frozen peaches for other frozen berries, or try using your favourite frozen fruit. 

You can also substitute the canned coconut milk for your a milk of your choice. Note that coconut milk is quite thick and rich in fat so you might need to use less milk and the consistency might not be as creamy.
