{Recipe Redux} No-Cook Desserts: Cinnamon-Banana Ice-Cream

A good friend Kelly first told me about this great way to finish a meal without guilt but still take care of the sweet tooth. When she told me that it was basically a mushed frozen banana, I was rather skeptical.

Really, Kelly? Do you know how much I love good quality ice-cream?

But sure enough, one frozen banana + 2 minutes in the food processor = one smooth and creamy dessert!

Banana Ice-Cream
  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
  • Optional: vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa powder, almond butter, etc for flavor
  1. Peel banana, slice into several small chunks and freeze. 
  2. When you're ready for a healthy solution to your sweet tooth, pop that banana into your food processor (or very powerful blender) and blend until creamy and smooth. Note: this takes a few minutes; hang in there.
  3. Add flavorings if you wish, I used cinnamon powder and vanilla extract, blend to combine, scoop into a bowl and enjoy!
This tasty dessert is gluten free, dairy free, egg free and guilt free :)

For best flavor and texture, make this dessert right when you're going to eat it. If you puree and then freeze, it tends to get icy. If you need to freeze extra, just let it thaw for a few minutes and give it a good stir before serving.

Cheers!
