Friday Feast: Banana “Ice Cream”
|July 27, 2012||Posted by Running at Disney under Healthy Eating|
Basically this recipe isn’t ice cream at all, but it is just as good! All you do is take frozen bananas and whip them up in a food processer for about 5 minutes. Voila…soft serve ice cream!
Now mine didn’t come out looking like the photo above, but it was still delicious and creamy. Oh and the best part…it’s fat free, cholesterol free, and has no added sugar! It is the perfect cold dessert to cure that summer ice cream craving completely guilt free! Quick tip: peel the bananas and put them in a freezer bag before freezing. They are difficult to peel once frozen.
So after making it with just bananas, I wanted to plus it up a bit, so I added some frozen peaches. Super YUM! It added a little additional tartness that I loved. This is my new favorite. Next up, I’m going to try blueberries, then maybe mangos!
Yes, I know you are thinking that this is too good to be true, but it’s not. So instead of throwing out those overripe bananas, pop them in the freezer and in a few hours you’ll have this great treat! You can thank me later 🙂
What else would you add to this “ice cream”?
