You know when you have a sweet tooth but you're trying to be really good and stick to your clean eating regimen and maybe lose a few of those lingering baby pounds before bikini season gets here? Me too. My secret weapon is banana ice cream. It is the easiest and most delicious thing in the world. Directions below and thank me later when you're looking hawt on the beach.
2 frozen ripe bananas will yield one serving of ice cream. And that's it. It's a miracle.
Pro tip: once your bananas are ripe, slice them up and throw them in the freezer.
Literally all you have to do is stick the bananas in a high powered blender (I use a Vitamix and it's the greatest thing in the world) and blend until smooth. The texture is just like sorbet. Your kids won't even realize it's not regular ice cream. Cross my heart.
The fun part is adding anything else into the blender! I like to add 5 to 7 fresh strawberries or half a cup of mango. Experiment with your favorite fruits or add some almond butter or coconut!
To keep in on the lighter side, keep these minimal. I like to add the following (pictured above):
1/4 cup of clean granola
1/4 cup of coconut shreds
2 tablespoons of almonds
Tell me how you mix yours up… I need new ideas!
