Ice cream is always a good choice – that is, until you find yourself sitting in front of the television, watching your fifteenth episode of Friends with an empty tub of Ben and Jerry’s in your lap.
It’s not a pretty sight.
Good news, though – there is a version of a healthy, low calorie and low sugar ice cream that you are able to make at home with as little as three ingredients.
This recipe comes from thenotquitevegan.com, however there are many other version of this recipe in existence throughout the internet.
You will need:
- 3-4 bananas, sliced then frozen
- 1 tbsp of peanut butter
- 3 tsp of coco powder
Place the bananas in a food processor and blend. You’re going to have to blend it for quite a while, and it may seem as though there is no change in the consistency of the banana. Just be patient. Eventually the banana will transform into a sleek and beautiful texture, at which point you can add your peanut butter and coco powder. You can either eat it as-is in order to achieve a soft-serve ice-cream experience, or you can place it in the freezer for a couple of minutes to firm it up. Either way, I am going to argue it is delicious.
Don’t feel as though you have to stop there, however. You can add whatever you would like to this creamy concoction, some suggestions being candy, maple syrup, honey, berries, Nutella or cashew/almond butter.
See how amazing this ice cream can be?
I have not yet tried this type of ice cream myself, however I think I am going to after discovering the recipe on thenotquitevegan.com. Personally, I would add cashew butter and perhaps some coco powder to my version, and when I do I will update everyone as to how it tastes.
