With the dog-days of summer coming to a close, (fingers crossed), I sometimes have a hankering for some good old fashioned ice cream. But trying to stay in lines with my healthy eating lately, I need a good alternative.
I usually make a version of this with my students as a cooking lesson. They don’t even miss the fact that it doesn’t have cream or eggs in it. And, it hardly has any sweetener at all.
With just a few minutes of prep, you can have a sweet treat in minutes!
Start by freezing 2 bananas that have been halved. In a blender, you will add the frozen bananas, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3/4 cups milk of choice.I’m using unsweetened almond milk.Puree and enjoy. This makes 1-2 servings.
If you are more of a chocolate fan, add 1/2 tablespoon of cocoa powder to the recipe.
If you are freezing for later, take out 30 minutes prior to serving. Add 1/4 more milk and blend again.
