Diet: A Healthy Treat

Fake Ice-cream

I have decided to try and make a healthy and raw ice-cream alternative and I loved loved loved the outcome:)  And the best thing is that it requires only two ingredients!

Slice 2 bananas, place them on a plate and cover them with plastic wrap. Put the plate into the freezer and let it freeze for at least 6 hours (or even better, overnight). Put the frozen bananas into a food processor and add a small amount of frozen strawberries (at least half of the mixture has to be the bananas) and blend them (3-4 minutes) until they form a smooth, creamy mixture. At first the consistency will seem strange, bananas will turn into crumbles, but as you blend it, it will become incredibly creamy. Scoop the ice-cream and serve it in an ice-cream cup.

* Don't use blender for this recipe, because it is not strong enough to chop the bananas properly and might even break. 

Hope you like the fake ice-cream and feel free to be creative in adding new ingredients to it! You could also do a bananas-only version!

Bon Appetit :)

  5. Iskra,

    I have made this recipe many times using even coco powder and chocolate syrup, or peanut butter and chocolate chips! SO YUMMY! I am so glad you enjoyed it!

  6. mmm.. will def be trying this! Any "fake" ice cream is a win in my books. Although I have discovered Green and Blacks ice cream this month.... too good to resist! But I will try my hardest with this!
