Ice cream is the one thing that you just can't go without. Can I get an amen? As many diets as I've tried (and trust, I've tried my fair share), I always need...want ice cream. Which is dangerous, cause I'm an "eat the whole darn pint" kind of gal. So when I found out that you can literally turn frozen bananas into ice cream, homegirl rejoiced! Guilt-free ice cream! I found the original version of this recipes from Blogilates here. (Side note, I heart Cassey and Blogilates. She’s super bubbly and makes pilates and clean eating fun and easy!) Let's get into it!
All you need is:
- a food processor or high powered blender (I use a Vitamix)
- two overripe bananas
- a dash (or two) of cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup of whatever milk you use! (Shhhh, don’t tell, but sometimes I use my snickerdooldle coffee creamer instead. #sorrynotsorry)
That’s it! And honestly, beyond the bananas, everything else is basically a suggestion. You could use peanut butter, honey, Nutella…the options are endless! This is just my favorite recipe. :)
Cut your overripe bananas into coins and freeze them.
Once frozen, place all ingredients in blender. Blend at a slow speed, then slowly increase the speed until completely smooth. You may need a little more milk if you find it gets stuck.
And there ya have it! Yummy, healthy banana ice cream. (Cortney's dog, Lily, approves of this recipe.)
Now to cozy up on the couch with a blanket and a 30 Rock marathon on Netflix. Good night, world.
