Attack the Snack Series – Banana “Ice Cream”

by Damon on July 7, 2012

This is the first in a series of posts I will be doing called “Attack the Snack” where I will be sharing recipes on making unhealthy foods in aHanging Bananas with Apples healthy way. I came up with this idea the other day when I was thinking of all the foods I’m not eating right now, that I absolutely love, because of my personal goal of having a six pack by my 35th birthday. Foods in this series will be things that are great healthy alternatives and recipes for making meals for cheat days a “little” healthier. I mean you got to cheat sometimes just to stay sane, right. Besides I’m not going to lie, I LOOOVE food especially junk food but if I’m going to reach my I’ve got to use moderation. Anyways here is the first recipe I hope you enjoy.

Banana “Ice Cream”

I have seen this recipe all over the internet for a long time but never had a real reason to try it, until now. It is super easy and tastes really good, if you like bananas. It is also a good alternative to those that are lactose intolerant or for those picky kids that won’t anything that’s good for them.

What You Will Need:

Bananas – 2  Makes about two servings.

1/4 Cup of Water

Wax Paper

Cookie Sheet

Freezer

Blender/Food Processor

Spoon/Mixing Spatula

Step #1

Peal and slice up the two bananas into ½ in slices.

Step #2

Cover the cookie sheet with the wax paper and spread out the slices of banana.

Step #3

Put the cookie sheet into the freezer for a few hours

Step #4

Remove bananas from the freezer and put them in the blender/food processor add the 1/4 cup of water and blend until a smooth consistency. ( This will more than likely require you to blend for 10-20 seconds then open the blender and push the solid pieces to the bottom of the blender. And you may have to do this a few times to get all the pieces.)Should take about 5 minutes or so.

Step #5

Pour your freshly made banana “ice cream” into a bowl and enjoy. Or but the bowl back into the freezer for a little bit so the banana can firm up and have more of ice cream consistency, either way it good.
