A healthy ice cream...NO WAY???

So this is one of my favorite diet breaker treats of all time!  And when a girlfriend of mine showed me a healthy way to still get the same sweet taste and amazing texture I was stoked!  Best of all it's quick and simple, all you need is a food processor or a strong blinder.

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 c all natural almond butter
  • 1/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Slice bananas 1/4" thick.  Place in a freezer bag and freeze overnight.
  2. Place frozen bananas, chocolate chips, and almond butter in a food processor.  Pulse until blended smoothly.
  3. Enjoy.  Place leftovers in a Tupperware in the freezer
Why is this better for you?
  • No preservatives
  • No artificial flavors
  • No heavy fattening artery clogging dairy
  • All natural sugars (minus the chocolate chips) rather than pounds of refined process sugars
  • Healthy fats from the bananas and almond butter
  • Protein from the almond butter
  • Potassium with a hint of magnesium from the bananas (good for muscle cramps)
If you are dieting or restricting calories:
  • Still treat this as a treat.  Eat it occasionally and in small portions.  Bananas and almond butter are dense foods, high in calories.
Enjoy :).  Eat Healthy.  Stay Healthy.
