Now you're probably thinking, why am I talking about ice cream on a beauty blog. Well there is a few reasons but we all know its just as important to look after our bodies inside as it as outside. I try to drink more water,eat my 5-a-day and exercise regularly but sometimes that doesn't always happen but it's a lot easier to do when you enjoy these things or they are fun.
Well last week I stumbled across a recipe that I wanted to try, and well I've tried I and have just put my spoon down and wanted to share it with you guys. You guessed it - Banana Ice cream.....with only one ingredient - Bananas! Super healthy, super tasty and one of your 5-a-day what more could you ask for!
Preparation time: 2 minutes
Cooking time: 3 minutes
1)Slice as many bananas are you want (roughly 1 banana = 1 scoop)
2)Pop the slices in the freezer (freezer bag or try)
3)Leave to freeze for 1-2 hours (or longer if you wish)
4)Remove frozen banana and allow to defrost for 5 minutes
5) Put bananas in food mixer and mix on high for 3-5 minutes until ice cream consistency.
How easy as is that? Just note - that when you first start mixing the bananas they will go grainy, but keep the mixer going it will just suddenly turn into ice cream (trust me).
Now you are free to enjoy one of your 5-a-day. You can even mix it up and add some chocolate chips or sauce, whatever you want. I think this is a great recipe for everyone, especially as a healthy alternative for kids, it's really surprising how creamy and ice cream like this taste. I'll never need to throw away bananas again.
If you have tired it, or do try please let me know what you think.
