Health & Fitness: An Easy Summer Dessert

I have been asking for healthy recipes that I use. Here is a super easy summer dessert with only 1 ingredient, BANANA! This is how you can make banana ice cream using only bananas. I LOVE this!

  1. Take a few over ripe bananas and peel them.
  2. Cut them into chunks that will blend well in your blender.
  3. Put them on a plate and freeze them for 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Put the pieces in your blender and pulse a few times. Keep going and scraping down the sides until creamy (adding a splash of milk is optional.) 
And that is it!! You can add chopped nuts or whatever else. If by the time you have blended it and it is to soft, just put it in a container and freeze it again and use an ice cream scoop.

Banana's are good for you because they are chock full of Potassium. Potassium plays an important role decreasing the risk of high blood pressure and stroke, it increases strength and helps reduce stress.

What are some of your favorite healthy snacks?
