I Can’t Believe It’s Not Ice Cream

This is what happens when you are craving something sweet but you are restricted by

  1. Dietary restrictions (gluten free & dairy free)
  2. A strict budget (can’t go crazy at the grocery store)
  3. Laziness (too much effort to leave the house…you know what I’m talking about)

That’s not soft serve ice cream…it’s a banana.

Bananas make delicious desserts and since they are super inexpensive, I always have some on hand. Recently I bought a few too many and since they were overripe, I decided to peel them and throw them in the freezer. Well a week later I wanted something sweet and decided to google frozen banana. And then I discovered  1-ingredient ice cream.

How to make 1-ingredient ice cream…

Peel your bananas first. Cut them into small pieces. Freeze for just 1-2 hours on a plate. Blend, blend, blend – scraping down the bowl when they stick.

The result is a creamy and delicious treat that you easily personalize by adding ingredients like peanut butter, honey, nutella…the list goes on and on.

Who needs an ice cream cone when you have a wine glass (or what happens when you have no clean dishes)

How do you get creative in the kitchen? 🙂
