Did you just say “Guilt Free” and “ice cream” in the same sentence?
I did and I meant it. Gone are the days of eating an entire tub of Ben and Jerry’s and feeling crappy! Get ready for a delicious and healthy ice-cream you can devour with a movie, serve as dessert or even make as an indulgent breakfast!
This “ice-cream” is made with 100% wholesome ingredients but has all the taste and texture of real ice cream. No dairy, no fat, no gulten and NO guilt 😉
Win. Win. Win. Win.
If you have not yet discovered that frozen bananas can be turned into ice cream, let me change your life. (You’re welcome in advance.)
Freezing bananas is easy, convenient and are useful to have around for adding a chilled part to your smoothies and whipping up desserts.
Are you ready for healthy ice-cream?
Idiots guide to freezing bananas: Using very ripe bananas (nice and spotty) unpeel and place in a plastic bag in the freezer. Easy.
(Serves 2… oh, who are we kidding? Eat it all yourself.)
5 Frozen Bananas, chopped roughly
2 (Generous!) tablespoons of 100% organic Peanut Butter
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon whole Peanuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
You will also need a good quality blender and a wooden spoon.
Begin by removing your frozen bananas and chopping them up roughly.
Put in the blender with peanut butter, cinnamon and water. Add the water gradually to avoid getting into smoothie territory!
As you’re working with frozen ingredients, you have to blend, stop, work the mixture around with your spoon before blending again. It can be a little time-consuming depending on the quality of your blender, but it’s worth it!
When the ice cream is blended to your liking, (it should be a nice soft-serve consistency) stir through the whole peanuts and add more cinnamon if you like.
Serve quickly! If you want to make it ahead of time, simply place in the freezer, covered.
