Did you know you can make “ice cream” with just frozen bananas?! Ok, yes, technically this means it’s not really ice cream. But you’ll be amazed (I sure was) at how similar the consistency is without any dairy, and how quickly it comes together. So when you’re itchin’ for a cool treat, but don’t want to set yourself back by consuming lots of sugar (or causing a little one to bounce off the walls!), try this recipe.

Even better: This banana Nutella ice cream is so simple to make it’s incredibly kid-friendly. The steps and ingredients are very few, making it a fun recipe to tackle together. It’s also easy to adjust. Your “ice cream” can consist of just the creamy, frozen bananas, but Nutella makes it tastier! As does peanut butter (a natural pairing) or your favorite frozen fruit. Have fun with it! Flavor and toppings are just suggestions; this is a recipe you can tweak to your own taste and calorie goals, and still enjoy.

Banana Nutella “Ice Cream”

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 Ripe bananas, peeled and frozen
  • 2 Tablespoons Nutella (or other flavoring, if desired)
  • Optional toppings (ie. sprinkles, chocolate chips)

banana-nutella-secondary-imageTools

Directions

  1. Break apart your ripe bananas into small pieces and drop into plastic baggies.
  2. Freeze bananas for at least two hours.
  3. Rigorously mix frozen banana pieces in a food processor.
  4. Keep mixing! Banana chucks will eventually turn into smooth consistency.
  5. Add flavoring and mix a bit more.
  6. Serve (with toppings as desired) and enjoy immediately!

Smaller pieces of frozen bananas are easier to mix. Regardless of size, you’ll still need to use a spatula to redistribute the mixture a few times throughout the process. And just when you think it won’t come together smoothly, mix a little more! It will.

Not a fan of Nutella? No problem! You can easily omit from the recipe and you’ll still have delicious “nice” cream, without.  You can also try swapping the hazelnut spread for peanut butter or almond butter instead.

4 Outstanding Reasons–and Recipes–to Eat More Blueberries

Published

on


Clickbank.com Ads Revealed: The Secrets our Clients Used to Earn $3 Billion

Heads up: It’s peak blueberry season. And no doubt you’ve heard that blueberries are totally beneficial super foods with almost magical health benefits. Well, it’s true. They’re considered “brain food,” with the ability to fight toxic proteins, and can harness their crazy-good antioxidants to fight harmful molecules and potential infections (so long, UTIs!). With all these benefits, and the United States’ role as the world’s largest supplier, there’s an entire month— July—dedicated to their greatness. Do you need more reasons to eat them? If so, here goes. Skip to the end for blueberry recipes, if you’re already convinced.

1. Digestive health. Blueberries have high fiber content. Enough said.

2. Weight loss support. That fiber also increases your general sense of fullness, and extends the sensation between meals, reducing overall appetite.

3. Better bone health. Bone structure, strength, and elasticity are all helped by the great combo of iron, zinc, vitamin K, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, and manganese found in blueberries.

4. Smoother skin. Say so long to some extra wrinkles thanks to the vitamin C that helps collagen improve overall skin texture, and acts as an antioxidant to help prevent skin damage from the sun and pollution.

5. Lower blood pressure. Blueberries contain potassium, calcium, and magnesium, which naturally decrease blood pressure. They do not include sodium, the concerning element connected to a high BP.

Here are five tasty ways to add more blueberries into your diet:

Toss Them in Fresh

A handful can be added to a salad, smoothie, oatmeal, or any number of other meals that could use a boost.

Breakfast: Vanilla Blueberry Yogurt Parfait

Take an idea from above for your first meal of the day, or prepare these delicious single-serving breakfasts.

Dessert: Blueberry Mini Tarts

Note: Beware of food that’s blueberry-flavored. It often doesn’t include actual blueberries. We want the real deal! And remember to hold off on washing the “dusty” fruit until you’re ready to eat them (to make them longer-lasting), and watch their juice; blueberries are a natural dye.
