Every week I buy a pile of bananas, peel them, break them into chunks, and throw them into a gallon size bag in the freezer.
When I’m trying to stay on track with eating well but get a craving for some of the cold & creamy stuff, this recipe can hit the spot!
- 1 banana (broken into 3 pieces and frozen)
- 1 tbsp water (approximately)
That’s it! I pop the bananas into my Ninja blender single serve cup and add a splash of water for consistency. Seconds later, it is the same consistency as soft serve ice cream. This recipe is all over the internet in various forms, I first got the idea from Pinterest a few years back.
The fun part: variations. Cinnamon, vanilla, peanut butter, chocolate chips, frozen strawberries, unsweetened cocoa powder– you can alter this to fit most any taste profile.
It’s perfect because it prevents feeling deprived, but still has wholesome nutritional value. Bonus points: Bananas are gentle on the stomach, a great source of potassium, and can help banish bloating- #win.
