Healthy Snack Hack: Banana ‘Nice’ Cream
Desserts mostly fall under the category of a “Whoa” food, or something that we only eat every once in a while. When you find yourself looking for something sweet like dessert, a good substitute is fruit. But fruit doesn’t have to be boring – this banana ‘nice’ cream is a healthy twist on an ice cream dessert!
• 2-3 ripe bananas (make sure they are ripe!)
• ¼ cup of milk (any type you like, our favorite is almond!)
• Pinch of salt
• Mix-ins of your choosing
When your bananas are ripe, peel them and cut them into big chunks. Put them in an airtight container or bag and freeze them. Once frozen, put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until you get a soft-serve texture (adding more or less milk as needed). Serve immediately, or pop back into the freezer for 30 minutes to firm it up. There are so many options to customize this like your favorite ice cream flavor – see this site for lots of ideas!
