Banana Ice Cream
Looking for a healthy alternative to ice cream? You will love these variations as will the kids!
All you need are frozen bananas (yes, frozen not fresh with ice or you wont get that creamy texture) and whatever flavor you wish. Blend the bananas and whatever else you chose to add in a nutribullet, food processor or any high powered blender and there you go!
