Banana Ice Cream – the healthy way!

Posted on 03. Sep, 2012 by in Food

Craving ice cream, here is the way to go. But you need to prepare for the craving 8 hours in advance!

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 5 ripe bananas
  • 2-3 cups of Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ½-1 tsp vanilla
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

DIRECTIONS: 

Take your ripened bananas, peel and slice them, throw them in a baggy, and then into your freezer they go (and then wait, and while you’re waiting, go do something productive like clean the house or workout). A ripe banana in my opinion is one covered in brown dots, it is at the peak of its sweetness, and should be easy to peel.

After you’re done being productive and your bananas are fully frozen, which usually will take about 8 hours depending on how many bananas you freeze at a time, you are ready to start the recipe.

FIRST: get your blender or food processor out and all of your ingredients out and ready.

SECOND: Throw the bananas, vanilla and vanilla almond milk in the blender and mix until creamy (note: start with a cup of milk and add more until creamy.)

THIRD: Take out of the blender and put into bowls. Sprinkle with cinnamon, top it with your favorite berries and enjoy! 

If you can’t gobble it all up in one sitting, just throw it in a container and put it back in the freezer. It will last for about a week in the freezer. Try this recipe on a hot day to cool off or eat this when your day hasn’t gone so well. This will definitely make you feel better no matter what your mood is.
