Healthy “Ice Cream”

Some time last year, pinterest was abuzz with pins about making ice cream from bananas. (Such as here and here). Its perfect for someone like me who is always looking for dessert, but is trying to eat healthy. I figured with the start of the New Year, this yummy and guilt free snack was perfect to bring back.

Most directions call for you to cut up the bananas, freeze them, blend them with a food processor, then add peanut butter/ cocoa/ fruit/ etc.  This way is delicious, but I make it a little differently, just because i think its easier.

First I cut up the banana, and put it in a small tupperware

Then, I mash up the pieces with a fork

Add some peanut butter and cocoa (or fruit, or whatever you like).  Mix it all up and freeze.

Thats all there is to it!  This definitely makes you feel like you are eating dessert and satisfies even my crazy sweet tooth.

Hope you enjoy!
