Do you want ice cream right now but don’t want the calories?

Just when you want something creamy, refreshing and good for you.

Here’s what you need:

*4 Bananas ripe but not completely brown and mushy

*Food Processor or strong blender

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Dice your bananas small and then place in a Ziploc bagĀ in the freezer over night

2. Take bananas out of freezer the next day and place in a food processor/blender

3. Let it sit for about 2 min. ( just enough for it to slightly soften)

4. Pulse until you get a nice creamy consistency ( you will need to stir with a spoon occasionally to get it from sticking to the sides) – at this point you can add a scoop of peanut butter/jelly to the food processor and then pulse just a couple of times to incorporate but not too much so you can just see it swirled in.

Now you got yourself a nice and healthy ice cream that you can enjoy anytime.

Enjoy!

I’d like to try and change it up a bit by adding maybe cocoa powder to make chocolate? or how about adding mint extract and adding shredded dark chocolate to make mint chocolate chip “ice cream”

Has anyone tried different variations?

I’d love to know!
