Can you call it ice cream if it doesn’t contain any cream? Or ice? Or anything besides a few bananas?? Well, that’s what I’m going to call it because the look and texture of this is exactly like ice cream! I had seen a few blog entries about this dessert, and it just seemed too good to be true. That is, until I scooped this out of my blender:

I have a lot of friends that are obsessed with eating healthily and have introduced me to tons of smart ways to satisfy my sweet tooth — sprinkling cinnamon and Splenda on apples, freezing grapefruits and grapes. But I’m excited to share this “recipe” with them (AHEM Marissa and Amanda!) as a new go-to healthy dessert. Of course it doesn’t have to be completely healthy…

That’s some peanut butter fudge sauce on top — just a little something sweet to add more flavors to the mix. I’m very excited to try new combinations with this “recipe” — mixing some peanut butter right in with the bananas, maybe some chocolate chips and walnuts, or just topping with a peanut butter sauce without the chocolate.

Healthy, Impossibly Easy Banana Ice Cream

3 large bananas (yup, that’s it!)

– Peel the bananas and cut them into 1/2″ slices
– Place them on a plate and freeze overnight
– Let bananas sit for about 5 minutes so it’s easier to get them off the plate
– Slide them in a blender and puree until smooth. This took me awhile, but be patient!
– Serve immediately and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Fudge Sauce

6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

– Combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, milk, and corn syrup in a saucepan and stir constantly until smooth
– Stir in vanilla and continue stirring
– Pour over ice cream while warm :)

Okay, back to studying…

    I love to make this!! It’s SO healthy and delicious, too! I froze kiwis and strawberries and threw them in with the bananas! Delicious!
