Are you ready for a recipe that is pure magic?

A healthy snack that only feels sinful?

A recipe with ONE INGREDIENT?!

Let me show you how to make Banana “Ice Cream!”

Start by peeling and slicing the bananas and placing them in a 9 x 13 pan.  Put the pan in the freezer until the banana slices are completely frozen.

When the bananas are frozen and you are ready to make the “ice cream,” remove the pan from the freezer and allow it to sit at room temperature for 3- 5 minutes.  The slices should be able to lift easily out of the pan.

Place the frozen banana slices in a strong blender or food processor and pulse.  Watch the bananas carefully as they will soon turn into a perfectly creamy “ice cream” texture!  Seriously, it’s magic!  Scoop and serve immediately.

The sky is the limit when it comes to this no-recipe recipe.  The banana ice cream tastes outstanding on its own, but you can also add in a touch of vanilla or cinnamon into the food processor, or top with chopped nuts.

Maybe blend in frozen berries or mangoes to change the flavor profile.

I added a scoop of peanut butter to make Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream – heaven!

How about a drizzle of Nutella?  Stop, I can’t take the deliciousness!

All I can say is, give it a try and I promise it will be an instant hit.  Get creative and make it your own with your favorite flavor combinations.  This is my new go-to guilt-free treat!
