Hurray! The sun is finally shining here in England 🙂 In the summer sunshine, nothing beats a lovely ice cream.. but what about all the sugar and fat that usually comes with it? Never fear.. this healthy ice cream recipe is here!

 

This healthy banana ice-cream is practically fat-free and it tastes amazing. It’s also really fun to make and you can even jazz it up your own way with chocolate chips or sprinkles 🙂 It really is healthy food in a naughty disguise (!)

 

To make more ice-cream simply double the quantities listed below (nutritional stats do not include the ‘optional’ ingredients).

 

Ingredients

  • 3-4 large ripe, frozen bananas*
  • 1 tbsp fat-free fromage frais/yoghurt**
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) orange or clementine juice**
  • Optional: dark chocolate chips, sprinkle of cinnamon, peanut butter or PB2***

*Make sure to peel your bananas first before slicing them up and freezing them in a plastic bag lined with non-stick paper (baking paper/grease proof paper)

**These are optional! You can just blend frozen bananas for a delicious creamy treat.. just like you do in the Yonanas!

**I would mix the PB2 with a little water/milk first (PB2 is lower fat/calorie peanut butter!)

 

Method

Step 1

Leave the frozen banana chunks to stand at room temperature for 2-3 minutes before adding them to a food processor or blender

Step 2

Blend for a couple of minutes, scraping down the sides with a spatula so that the mixture 'creams' at the bottom and then add your fromage frais and orange/celemtine juice (optional)

Step 3

Blend (adding your optional ingredients half-way through if using)

Step 4

Eat immediately (with a sprinkle of cinnamon/sprinkles) or freeze in a container for later (can be kept for up to 1 month)

    How long are you suppose to freeze the banana slizes? can you leave them over night and make the ice-cream in the morning? Looks delicious!!

      Yes! That’s what I did – just leave them to thaw a little before adding them to the food processor. Let me know how it goes! Nic x

    This ice cream is amazing! Chocolate PB2 adds a “snickers-like” taste and calorie free maple syrup swirled through adds sweetness <3

    Finally got round to trying this. I blended the banana with some frozen dark cherries and a small honey Greek yoghurt which was lush and very filling! Looking forward to trying it with peanut butter and never buying Ben and jerrys again!
