Did you know that you can make delicious icecream - using no sugar, cream or any chemicals and additives that are found in most store bought icecreams? Bananas are the base for this yummy creation. Bananas are great for you - helps promote good digestion, promotes high nutrient absorption, great source of potassium - the list goes on and on....
So here's what you do - and even my husband loves this stuff - so get on it!
Let some bananas get pretty ripe. Ripe bananas are better for you anyway, meaning they have more nutrients in them (though if I'm just going to eat a banana I prefer them to be almost green).
Peel those bananas - put them in a freezer safe bag - and freeze them!
When you are ready, take 1-2 bananas out (per person who will be indulging), slice them up and throw them in the blender.....
Add about 1/4-1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk, or whatever milk you like)....
I also usually add protein powder (vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter all go well with banana) - 1-2 scoops
I also love adding 2-3 tbsp PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter.
Now you can add other things instead of PB2 -
real peanut or almond butter - or I think something like Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut butter would be delish!
Berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
Combine in blender until smooth.
You can eat this now - it will be like soft-serve - or freeze for harder icecream.
You can top with yummy things too -
sugar free chocolate syrup or caramel
There are plenty of combinations to try. Trust me - even picky eaters will love this - kids and husbands included!
