Healthy banana ice cream

Say what?  Yep. Healthy. And ice cream.

I just found this recipe for a one-ingredient ice cream at Our Best Bites

banana ice cream

All you do is chop up fairly ripe (like not black, but just starting to spot) bananas.  Freeze the chunks.
purée frozen banana chunks in food processor.  It may end up looking like couscous.
mush around with a spatula and it should turn into the creamy delicious texture of ice cream.  Voila!

And some toppings you can add or blend in – some of them sort of downgrade the healthy factor:

  • a spoonful of Nutella
  • a spoonful of peanut butter
  • cinnamon (or cinnamon sugar)
  • frozen berries
  • chopped almonds

Or add some milk, and some of those ingredients (nutmeg and cinnamon was suggested) for a yummy smoothy. 

Remember that although bananas are super good for you – packed with great nutrients, and they’re filling to boot, they’re also high in sugar and dense.. so it’s not like they’re calorie free or anything.

I made this after dinner tonight and it was delicious!
