End Your Ice Cream Addiction With This Two Ingredient Recipe
January 20, 2015 26 Comments
Lately, I find myself talking a lot about ice cream. I’m not eating ice cream because it is in the negatives outside (brrr).
The conversation I keep having is about different foods that are impossible to control yourself around. For me, it is a hot steaming pizza of cheesiness.
I have discovered that I am in the minority among my friends. If there is ice cream in the house, they cannot stop eating it – which I understand because of my love of pizza.
What if the ice cream you were eating was actually healthy and you made it yourself? No big buckets of Cookies-n-Cream screaming at you from the freezer –no, a homemade concoction.
What if your homemade ice cream had almost zero grams of saturated fat?
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.
Peanut Butter and Banana Ice Cream Recipe
Makes 4, 1/2 cup servings
3 very ripe bananas
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
