|Two-Ingredient Ice Cream with a blueberry on top.|
I first came across this recipe while on one of my favorite blogs: The Natural Selection. I just had to try the ice cream since all that was required was a frozen banana, a little almond butter, and a few minutes of puree-ing in the blender. And guess what? It is so delicious! It kind of tastes like a banana split - amazing!
This is my new "non-guilty" pleasure, and I say non-guilty because there is no sugar added. There are also no ingredients-you-cannot-pronounce. It's just a banana and almond butter (preferably natural). How's that for healthy!?!
So, without further ado, here is the recipe (snatched from The Natural Selection) in a nutshell. Feel free to modify it to your liking:
1 tbsp of almond butter
Note: I used natural peanut butter in place of almond butter, which worked just fine
1. Peel and chop the banana into quarters and freeze for at least 1 hour.
2. Blend on pulse with the almond butter.
3. Keep going until its whipped to a smooth consistency.
4. Pour into a bowl and enjoy or refreeze for later.
Optional: add berries, cocoa powder, honey, or anything else "delish and nutrish" (Cassidy's words)
