Ice Cream Without Added Sugar: Only 2 Ingredients
January 21, 2016 22 Comments
What if there was something that resembled ice cream and you could make it yourself?
No sugar added, no saturated fat, and incredibly simple!
The key is these bad boys:
Yes, those bananas that no one wants to eat because they look disgusting? They are sitting on your counter right now – looking at you. These are what make the “faux ice cream” sweet.
All you do is slice them, freeze them, blend them with some peanut butter and viola! This is tasty and hits that sweet, salty, fatty note that we love in sweets without the animal fat.
If you have a high power blender, use it for this recipe. I have a $50 blender so I use my food processor to get the right consistency. Add some cocoa powder if you want a chocolate note – so good.
