Screaming for Ice Cream? Here’s an alternative:

As good as that big bowl of ice cream tastes, it is best enjoyed in moderation. But if you can’t resist the sweet tooth, here’s a healthier alternative for you: Frozen bananas!

Take about 3 very ripe bananas. “Very ripe” is key here; the more ripe the banana the sweeter it will taste. Slice the bananas into 1/4″ slices and freeze them until they are solid.

Once the bananas are frozen, you are ready to go. Take the bananas from the freezer and dump them into a blender. Add 1/2 cup of almond milk (adjust based on how thick you want your banana ice cream; less milk will be a little thicker). Blend until well mixed and there are no more banana chunks left. Scoop out of blender and enjoy!

This is a gluten free, lactose free alternative to ice cream, and tastes fantastic. If the bananas aren’t enough for you, try topping it with some dark chocolate chips or strawberries. Enjoy!
