Healthy and Delicious Banana Ice Cream

Craving a sweet treat that won't derail your healthy eating habits? Look no further! This homemade banana ice cream is not only delicious but also low in calories and packed with natural goodness. Made with just a few simple ingredients, this recipe is a perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth without any guilt. Let's dive into the details! This recipe makes 6 servings (90 calories per serving).

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas

  • 1 glass of milk (dairy or your favorite plant-based alternative)

  • A few drops of vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder (optional)

 

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Bananas

Start by selecting 4 ripe bananas. The riper they are, the sweeter your ice cream will be. Peel the bananas and cut them into small pieces. Pop them into the freezer and let them freeze for 3-4 hours. This will give your ice cream that creamy texture we all love.

Step 2: Blend to Perfection

Once your banana pieces are frozen, it's time to make the magic happen. Remove the bananas from the freezer and place them in your blender. Add a glass of milk—feel free to use dairy milk, almond milk, oat milk, or any other milk of your choice. This will help the bananas blend smoothly.

Step 3: Add Flavor

To elevate the taste of your banana ice cream, add a few drops of vanilla extract. If you're a chocolate lover, sprinkle in a tablespoon of cocoa powder. These additions will take your ice cream to the next level, giving it a rich and indulgent flavor without the added calories.

Step 4: Blend and Serve

Blend the mixture until it's smooth and creamy. You might need to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender a few times to ensure everything is well-mixed. Once you've reached the desired consistency, your homemade banana ice cream is ready to enjoy!

Step 5: Enjoy Your Treat

Serve your banana ice cream immediately for a soft-serve texture, or freeze it for an additional hour if you prefer a firmer consistency. Either way, you'll have a delicious, natural, and low-calorie ice cream that's perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings.
