As I have mentioned before, I have quite the sweet tooth. When I was a little kid, I would bring an empty pillowcase trick-or-treating. It would be almost full by the end of the night, and all the good candy (a.k.a chocolate) would be consumed by the end of the week! I didn’t stop there. Nope! I loved tirck-or-treating so much that one year I decided to go again the day after Halloween. I was caught when a neighbor decided to call my mom and tell her I was begging for candy in broad daylight. I don’t think kids could get away with that these days.
Now, I’m always trying to find healthy ways to satisfy my sweet tooth… A few months ago when I first started this journey for a fit, healthy life, I was watching a bunch of documentaries about healthy eating. One had the great idea of making ice cream out of bananas! He only used frozen bananas and vanilla extract! It was a genius idea that I needed to try. I found it very satisfying, but it had a strong banana flavor. Insert cinnamon and organic brown sugar…BINGO, we had a winner!
- 2 Frozen Bananas
- 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon of organic brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- Add all ingredients in a food processor.
- Blend just enough until it is smooth and creamy like soft serve.
This is truly the simplest recipe.
The bananas blend easier if you cut them into smaller slices. I learned that the hard way.
The consistency is more like soft serve than ice cream, and it’s best if eaten right away. The soft serve will get very hard if you try to freeze it for later.
Banana soft serve is also delicious with peanut butter, cocoa powder, or raspberries.
For those with a sweet tooth out there, what healthy recipes do you enjoy for dessert?
