Yes, you read that right….only one ingredient! Who know the banana was capable of such a thing, right?
I saw a post about this on (yes, you guessed it) Pinterest, and I had to try it!
Ingredients:3 Bananas, sliced into coins and frozen for at least 2 hours.Directions:Put frozen banana coins into a food processor or Vitamix, mix on low until it you have what looks like soft serve ice-cream.
Transfer into a container and put into the freezer until it hardens up to a consistency you like.
That’s it! That’s all there is to it!
Now, there are variations on this and I have tried two of them…
Nutella Banana Ice-cream:
3 Bananas, cut into coins and frozen (as directed above)
6 Tbsps Nutella Hazelnut Spread, or other brand of your liking (I know there are healthier ones out there)
Put frozen banana coins into a food processor or Vitamix, mix on low until it you have what looks like soft serve ice-cream. Add Nutella and mix a little longer. Transfer into a container and put into the freezer until it hardens up to a consistency you like.
The other variation is just banana, but my bananas were in the freezer for a few days, so they were really hard. I added some Almond Breeze Coconut/Almond milk to it so it could mix easier. Next time I make this version I plan on adding some vanilla whey protein powder to it as well. I really liked the hint of coconut with the banana!
You can top these variations with a little granola, fresh fruit or even a light sprinkle of mini dark chocolate chips to really feel like you’re splurging!
So there ya have it! A quick, easy and healthy way to treat yourself with some “ice-cream” AND sneak in another fruit serving!
