Health homemade ice cream
We love ice cream, I mean, it can get to an unhealthy point. I am not going to lie. So we cut ourselves off of ice cream a little short of two years now. Don’t get me wrong we have indulged a few times here and there but if we don’t check ourselves, shit can get real, real fast!
But who doesn’t want ice cream, right? It is just so nice and creamy and cold.
Damn it, I want some right now!
Anyway, back to my point. One night the thought of ice cream popped into our heads. And then another thought popped into my head…
I thought, why not try and use frozen bananas to make some ice cream. So in went some frozen bananas, some fruit and some milk. I blended that goodness up and served up some “ice cream.” I didn’t think to much about it, I figured it would help curb the craving that night and we would forget about it.
Well hot diggity damn, this blended up goodness came out way beyond expectations. My husband kept asking me, “you made this?”
The kids were fooled and all our bellies were smiling!
The next night after dinner everyone was like, can we have ice cream again.
And a delicious recipe was created. The best part about this recipe is that it can be totally changed depending on your mood. Throw in some chocolate chips, vanilla bean, cacao powder, granola…the sky is the limit my friend.
Wanna know how I curbed our ice cream craving?
Alright, alright. Let’s do this.
Healthy Ice Cream
Don't allow ice cream to control your life and your weight. Whip up some heathy stuff, you belly and your thighs will thank you.
- 5 Frozen bananas
- 2 cups Frozen fruit of choice
- 1/4 cup Milk of choice
Grab yourself a blender or food processor.
Pour in your milk.
Toss in your frozen bananas. It is best to break them in half or quarters.
Toss in your frozen fruit.
Blend your little heart out.
The key here is to not blend to the point of liquidation. You want everything blended but just enough to maintain a thick texture.
I like to add some fresh fruit or even frozen blueberries on top when serving.
Boom son, you just made yourself some damn delicious ice cream that you can feel good about. It is super easy and your kids can enjoy with out the sugar high after.
Heavy cream is ideal for making super creamy ice cream. But you can choose any milk that you desire. The base of this ice cream is really the banana. The milk just helps allow all your frozen fruit to blend easily.
Tell me what y’all think. Does it hit the spot? Did you add anything else like vanilla bean or some chocolate chips? Leave a comment below.
Happy ice cream makin!
