Banana “Ice Cream”
After hearing about this “recipe” several times and seeing lots of rave reviews online I couldn’t wait to give it a try. It certainly couldn’t be easier, and I found it to be really tasty as well. If you’re on the Weight Watchers program, since fruit is now “free” this is also a zero point dessert! Make sure your bananas are ripe before freezing to get the sweetest flavor out of them. You can make as much or as little of this as you’d like at a time simply by using more or less frozen bananas, so it’s an easy dessert or snack to throw together for a group or just for one! The ice cream tasted great on its own, but if you want to jazz it up you can add any fun toppings you’d usually enjoy on ice cream for additional WW P+ (pictured above with 1 tsp mini chocolate chips). The ice cream is pictured without toppings at the end of the recipe. Enjoy!
Banana "Ice Cream"
Yield: 1 serving
- 1 large ripe banana
- Chop up banana into bite sized pieces and put into an airtight Ziploc bag. Freeze banana pieces for at least 2 hours. Once frozen, put banana pieces in a blender or food processor and blend until creamy.
This is yummy on its own (and 0 WW points!) but it’s always fun to add toppings. I mixed in 1 tsp of mini chocolate chips and it was delicious. You could also top with chocolate syrup, melted dark chocolate, FF Reddiwhip, nuts, sprinkles, caramel, melted peanut butter or anything else you’d put on ice cream (all for additional points).
