One thing I truly love about this Banana Blueberry Ice Cream is how indulgent it can feel even if it’s not ‘cheat day’ without needing an ice cream machine. It’s a true epitome of the adage “Have your cake (or ice cream) and eat it too!” . You can eat this ice cream without any guilt, trust me! Why? Because it’s made from 3 natural, unprocessed ingredients: bananas, berries (blueberries here but any berries will do!), and low-fat milk.
Light desserts can easily become a classic because they can be an everyday choice. And extraordinarily, this recipe only takes 3 minutes to prepare!
There is something to be said about light desserts when they are done right. They can easily become a classic. Take the “banana” ice cream as an example. Back in my teen years (before I was a dietitian!) I loved ice cream (and admittedly still do) but knew it wasn’t any good for health, and imagine my delight when I discovered frozen bananas could be transformed into a luscious and creamy ice cream substitute just on its own by whipping up with a fork. Texturally it’s similar to real ice cream, and the natural sugars from the banana was a perfect sweetener in itself without needing added sugars.
Although the original banana ice cream is great, this recipe is a modern twist on it to spice up the taste and make it even creamier. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do! Enjoy it at your Christmas parties – I’m sure it will be a big hit! Season’s greetings everybody!
