Healthy Banana Ice Cream


My favorite go to healthy dessert is banana ice cream and it is toddler and husband approved too! I tend to have dessert cravings during pregnancy and this is always a great alternative to try, It’s so easy to prep and make and my daughter loves helping make it before devouring it.

All you need for this delicious treat are a few ripe bananas and a blender or food processor. I prefer to use my food processor because I feel it’s more high powered than the blender we currently have. It’s also fun to experiment with other frozen fruits (mango, strawberry, pineapple, or blueberry).

This is also a great summer treat when you are craving something sweet and cold but don’t want all the added sugar that typical ice cream and popsicles include. You can add any of your favorite ice cream toppings and they all taste great.

I have tried this recipe with some frozen mangoes I happened to have on hand and it just added an extra layer of delight to the dish. Feel free to do the same with any frozen fruit you might in your freezer.

Favorite toppings:

  • Sliced strawberries or any fruit
  • Peanut Butter or any nut butter of choice
  • Walnuts or sliced almonds
  • Chocolate chips
  • Jam
  • Honey
  • Granola

My daughter loves when we have whipped cream in the house and top it off with a good dose of it too.
