MEET YOUR NEW BFF
If you haven’t ever made ice cream out of bananas, then you need to try it asap… because it’s really delicious – and it’s totally healthy!
The most important part of making banana ice cream is freezing the bananas before you work with them. When you freeze banana it becomes super thick & creamy – just like ice cream. You’ll also want to peel and slice the bananas before you freeze them.
This recipe is totally 100% dairy and sugar-free. It’s also made from good carbs, protein and healthy fats.
So why not eat it for breakfast?!
