NatureBox and Banana Soft Serve

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend so far :). In case you missed it, make sure you take a look at the ab circuit workout I posted on Friday…it’s a good one! My abs were on fire when I did it!

Earlier this week I came home and found an awesome package on my porch:

I got some goodies from NatureBox!! NatureBox is a healthy snack subscription service that ships goodies to subscribers on a monthly basis. All of the products are made from wholesome ingredients and these things are never on the ingredient list: high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, and artificial colors. Talk about healthy snacking!

Naturally I opened the pacakge right away to see what types of snacks I got ;).

The box included 5 different snacks:

  • Zingy currants
  • Peppery pistachios
  • Smokey pumpkin seeds
  • Cranberry jubilee
  • Dried pears

And of course I opened each bag and dug my hands in to try them all out!

Oh wow, all of them were super tasty! I even didn’t mind the currants (which are like raisins…and well I don’t like raisins haha). My favorite are the peppery pistachios and smokey pumpkin seeds. Absolutely delish! I’ll definitely be incorporating all of these into my snacks :).

Another awesome thing about NatureBox is that for every one sent out, NatureBox donates one meal to feed the over 14 million children in America who go hungry every year. That’s amazing!

If any of you guys are interested in signing up for a NaturBox subscription, you can get 25% off your first month (this discount is only applicable to the month-to-month subscription. 6 month subscriptions receive 1 month free and 12 month subscriptions receive 3 months free). Enter the promo code HEALTHY for the discount!

Thank you NatureBox! You guys sent me some incredibly tasty snacks :).

And speaking of snacks I finally made some banana soft serve last night. And holy yum! It was amazing! Why have I waited this long to do it??

For the soft serve I used the food processor to blend these items until it was of a creamy (soft-serve like) consistency:

  • 2 frozen bananas (they were really ripe!)
  • 1 scoop of peanut butter
  • 1/2 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder

It was absolutely divine :)….and it’s my new favorite snack. I love that it’s healthy too! If you haven’t tried banana soft serve yet, you need to asap!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    It’s been waaaay too long since I made myself some banana soft serve! I guess I just never think to do it because I’m always eating froyo when I have a craving for something cold, but my wallet could afford to take a little break haha 😀

  13. I haven’t tried banana soft serve, but I DID have a banana pudding shake from Chick-Fil-A yesterday haha. It definitely wasn’t healthy, but it was delicious!!! 🙂

  14. Those treats look amazing – especially the pistachios!

    I tried banana soft serve once, but I only used one banana and it turned into just little specks of banana all over my blender. I think I need to try making a few more servings at once next time 🙂

  15. MMmmmm banana soft serve is so so good… like i said on Twitter I have not had it enough though! I want to try other variations too

  16. I’m obsessed with banana soft serve! I usually make it with just banana and then top it with chopped dark chocolate and granola. Major yum! 😀

  17. i’ve tried banana soft serve but haven’t made it myself. i don’t have a food processor! i keep seeing recipes i want to try that i can’t because i don’t have one. may need to get on that when i get my own place.

    i just won a naturebox giveaway to get the april box! it was on heather’s blog, for the love of kale. can’t wait to try/review it myself!
