If I would
have to be blessed to pick one dessert to have a superpower to eat without getting fat it would be ice cream. It is truly shocking how much of it I can put in my tiny body. Honestly, I am wondering if there is some kind of ice cream eating competition cause I would most definitely win.
Well, thus I do not have that superpower I must stay on a healthy side and how happy I am I found a just perfect way of doing it. The extent this ‘perfectness’ goes to – I actually prefer my ‘ice cream – nice creams’ now to the full-fat ones from the store. I find them more refreshing, less heavy and obviously guilt-free. Another good point, if you have children, why would you feed them with something made in a factory with artificial flavours and lots of unhealthy sugars if you can spend literally 2 minutes and give them something not only delicious and naturally sweet but full of vitamins which are good for them.
If you have not tried these yet and you love ice cream but you want to be fit – be ready for a life changing switch!
Firstly, the most basic recipe which I find very satisfactory is so simple I find it embarrassing to write about.
1.Take super ripe bananas (yes, I mean it, take those which skin is already turning brown but they are not too soft inside). This is important cause super ripe banana will have that delicious sweetness and that is what you want in your ice cream.
2. Peel them, cut or break into pieces and place in your freezer to freeze.
3. Whenever you feel like a desert – take a handful out of your freezer and blend it. You may want to add a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. Banana nice cream also goes really well with pecan nuts or/and raisins. Yum!
4. Enjoy from the bowl or get yourself those nice waffle cones.
Then, with this basic recipe you can build around it as far as your creativity goes. Mine did not go too far, I love the basic banana recipe with raisins. But I also enjoyed adding some frozen raspberries and topping it with fresh strawberries in a bowl.
Another alternative is to use frozen berries only (no banana) and blend them with a spoon of yoghurt (or cottage cheese if you want to add some protein and make it super healthy) and some honey.
This is it. Enjoy!
