Ginger Peach Ice Cream + Frozen Treat Recipe Roundup

Ginger Peach Ice Cream - Eat Spin Run Repeat

Good morning, guys!

How was your weekend? Mine was absolutely lovely, and so much of it was spent outside which was probably one of the reasons it felt so good. The ash from all the forest fires we’ve had nearby has finally cleared, and our Vancouver skies are beautiful and blue again.

On Saturday morning I had a long run, then my friend Danielle and I headed to Cypress Mountain for our 5 Peaks trail race volunteer shifts. We were on registration duty, which, as chaotic as it seemed was actually a lot of fun because we got to wish all the runners good luck before they started. We hung out after the race, celebrated with some of my friends who were racing, and had an awesome time.

Sunday was also great because…… brunch! After my morning ride and run were out of the way, I met my fellow triathlete buddies Angela and Julie (both super hilarious and totally awesome ladies) and we rode our bikes out to a delicious brunch spot called Living Cafe in Steveston. It ended up being about 36 miles round trip with a very tasty half-time break!

Notice anything unusual the photo above? Maybe like I have a 20 sticker on my helmet that I totally forgot to take off after my race earlier this month? Yep, I rocked it the whole time without knowing. Reeeeeal cool. #20forlyfe. 😉

It’s been really toasty here all weekend, so when I came home, the first order of business (after stripping off my sweaty tri kit and showering – #hygienefirst) was to demolish a bowl of Ginger Peach Ice Cream, a little recipe I created the day prior. It wasn’t intended to be a recipe for the blog, but this one was too good not to share. With a banana base and super juicy peaches, this one’s just as good for breakfast as it is for dessert… or any time of day, for that matter.

Ginger Peach Ice Cream - Eat Spin Run Repeat

Since we’re smack in the middle of summer and it seems everyone is hot errrywhere, AND because  yesterday was apparently National Ice Cream Day, I thought today would be a good one for a big healthy frozen treat recipe roundup.

Yesterday after all the running and riding was done, I spent some quality time browsing Pinterest in my jammies. The plan was to list a bunch of photos here for you, but I found SO many that I figured a Frozen Treats board would be better to share. Hop on over and check it out if you’re looking for some totally delicious ways to cool off and satisfy your sweet tooth!

  • What’s your favourite ice cream flavour?
  • What did you get up to this weekend?

  1. YUM! Peach anything is perfect for me but peace ginger ice cream blows my mind!
    Looks like you had a perfect weekend – I sure do miss our long rides!

  2. Can’t wait to try the ice cream. Everyone once in a while, when I have the craving, I will blend up a frozen banana and add in a little bit of peanut butter, but this sounds way more inviting 🙂 Also, LOVE your top (and your shorts!) in your bike pic. Mind sharing where you got them? Thanks!

    1. It’s funny you mention that Sarah, because it’s one of my favourite little concoctions too! Thanks so much for the compliments on my tri kit. I bought it (as well as the tri suit I’m wearing in this post) from Smashfest Queen, an awesome company owned by pro triathlete Hillary Biscay and her business partner Michele Landry. Hillary is one of my biggest triathlon inspirations and the kit they’ve got at Smashfest Queen is awesome. Highly recommended!

    1. Ooh I can remember eating SO much neapolitan ice cream as a kid, and I’d always go straight for the chocolate layer in the container. Like you, I’m not a huge dessert eater either but if I’m gonna have it, banana-based ice cream is where it’s at – well, at least it’s been that way recently! 🙂

  3. Whoohoo! We destroyed that ride (AND that food, even if it took them 3 times to get everything right haha!) We need a juice catch-up so we can discuss Penticton and the ugliness that is the cycling race course!
