Healthy Banana Ice Cream

You never thought you would hear the words clean and healthy in the same sentence as ice cream, did you? This easy, fun recipe is a favorite around our house. I have no problem letting my daughter have a huge bowl of this "ice cream" and I often even have a bowl myself. The only ingredient is bananas and maybe a little honey if you want a sweetener. 

My little one loves when I toss a handful of sprinkles on top too! 

I use this recipe a lot like banana bread, you know, that recipe you grab when your bananas are about to go bad. Peel your bananas and slice into rounds. Place the bananas on a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet and pop in the freezer for a few hours. When your bananas are good and frozen, peel them off and place in a blender.

Blend them until you get a smooth ice cream like texture. You can add a little bit of honey to the mix if you want to sweeten it up a little bit. It should look like soft ice cream.

Scoop it out into bowls or cones, or put it back in the freezer, covered, to harden up into more of a scoopable ice cream. Both are delicious!
