Healthy Ice Cream

We are big fans of ice cream in our house.

My husbands like a woman during that special time when it comes to ice cream. Who the heck needs a bowl, give him a freakin’ spoon and don’t even think about looking in his direction as he eats it.

It’s serious business.

Boo loves it too, yet with less drama.

She’s all about the toppings at yogurt station. You know the ones that 150 sick kids ran their fingers through right after they picked their noses…

If your new to the blog I need to let you know that Boo has quite an attitude and unfortunately our house has had a little bit more chaos than normal. I decided to introduce a sticker chart for her, and every time she does a good job at something she get’s a sticker. After so many stickers, she earns rewards. Her first reward was ice cream.

As fun as going out to an ice cream shopย is, making it together at home is much better.

Oh…And it helps that 150 sick kids didn’t touch the toppings.

Eat Me Ever Day Ice Cream

Ingredients:

1 1/2 frozen bananas

1 TB. Peanut Butter

1/4 tsp. vanilla

Eat Me Every Day Chocolate Drizzle

Ingredients:

Spoonful of cocoa powder

drizzle of water/non dairy milk

liquid sweetener to taste (opt.)

Directions:

1.In a food processor or blender, puree bananas with PB and vanilla until creamy. If the mixture becomes to thick to, add a few drizzles of non dairy milk and then break up the chunks a little. Let it puree, it may take a few minutes.

2. While it is pureeing, make the chocolate sauce by whisking all of the chocolate drizzle ingredients together until combined.

3. In a bowl, add your ‘ice cream’, drizzle with some chocolate, and top with desired toppings.

4. If you like to scoop your ice cream and have it a little harder than soft serve, place the pureed ice cream in a tupperware and spread it out. Let it sit in the freezer for at least 30 min-1 hour to let it firm up. Then you can scoop it out! ๐Ÿ™‚

You can definitely get creative with the additions and toppings in this ice cream!

If you want to check out what and how we did with making this ice cream, watch our video we made! Be warned that I talk a lot and 87% if it doesn’t make any sense…

Awesome right? ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love this idea! I see healthy ice cream recipes all the time that require an ice cream machine… which I don’t have. So this is great! And that easy chocolate sauce sounds perfect!

  2. I love this ๐Ÿ™‚ Ice cream that is healthy ๐Ÿ™‚ And wont’ go directly to the hips!! We are trying to avoid PB in our household until the LO is old enough to do an allergy test.. any suggestions on alternatives to PB?

  3. YUMMY!!!! <3 Love the sprinkle touch too!

  4. Coincidentally, this exact dessert happened at MY house last night too — with mini chocolate chips as the topping of choice ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Such a good idea! Banana “nice” cream is the best. It literally changed my life when I discovered it. I think through your blog a while back, actually?!

  6. Love it. And love how cute it is! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. So – this may sound like a silly question, but how do you freeze your bananas? Preparation to keep them from browning? And how far in advance – how long do they take to be frozen enough? and how long can they store once frozen?

  8. Your girls’ clothes are so cute, where do you usually shop for them?

  9. can’t wait to try this! i’ve made banana “ice cream” before, but never quite like this!

  10. I love banana ice cream! My newest creation involves blueberries, lemon and coconut… so good! I think I could eat it every night and luckily I’ve finally convinced my hubby that you can’t taste the bananas. Next one to get him to love is avocado pudding!

  11. This is such a fabulous recipe! Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter together!? Looks delicious.

  12. this is such a great idea. i know i’ve heard people say you can puree frozen bananas to mimic ice cream but now i can see how it’s done. so simple. i’m definitely going to try this with my kids soon. maybe this weekend!
