Delicious Healthy Ice Cream


This is honestly my new favourite thing, in the world, ever. Ok, despite the dramatic statement this honestly is a new favourite of mine, I made it by complete accident one morning (although it's so simple so I doubt I am the only one). I was trying to make my usual berry smoothie, when I stumbled upon this little creation, and if you struggle with your sweet tooth when trying to eat healthily, this is the perfect solution.

It's so easy to make, that it only includes two ingredients, bananas and berries. The most important part is that they are both frozen. I buy frozen summer fruits as it's a lot cheaper then freezing you own. For the bananas, they work best once they have ripened, simply peel and slice them, then pop in the freezer. It's a great idea to do this when you have a whole bunch of bananas you know you aren't going to get through. 



Take the bananas out of the freezer about 15 minutes before you are going to blend them, to make sure they aren't too hard, then simply, pop around 2 bananas and a big handful of berries into the blender and blend, it's that simple. If you are using a hand blender like me, it definitely works your muscles making sure it's all blended.

I can't describe quite how delicious this is, and I have been having it almost everyday for about a week. You can even add flax seeds, chia seeds or any kind of thing you like, be sure to let me know if you mix it up with any other ingredients.

  5. I make this a lot too - I find just blending the banana with nutella or peanut butter great for a really "naughty but not too bad" treat! x

  6. I definitely need to try this again! I've made something similar but I added almond milk and it got kind of gross and crystalized when I put it back in the freezer for the next day. Oops! Will stick to just the two ingredients next time ;)

    Stopping by to send a little love from twitter!
