If you are avoiding dairy or just looking for a healthier version of ice cream, you will love this recipe.
It is so easy and tastes amazing. Plus, it has no dairy, added sugar, or weird ingredients.
All you need are:
2 (frozen) bananas
1 tablespoon almond or peanut butter
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
3-4 tablespoons almond milk.
For a low-fat version, just omit the almond butter.
First you will want to slice up some bananas and put them into a freezer bag.
Be sure to separate the pieces so they freeze flat. Otherwise you can get a big clump of banana slices when they all freeze together.
This is a nice way to save a bunch of bananas that aren’t going to make it much longer.
Slice them up and freeze them so you have them ready when you get a sweet craving. You can freeze them in single serving bags to make it easier. I usually do two bananas per bag.
When you are ready, pour a bag of your frozen bananas, carob powder, almond butter and almond milk into a food processor.
Blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and you are done. If you want more of a milkshake consistency, just add more almond milk.
I love this treat because kids think they are getting a sweet dessert but it’s actually all good stuff!
You can also do this with frozen strawberries for a version of strawberry ice cream. I’d love to hear your variations on this. I’m sure there are a ton!
