Strawberry Banana Ice Cream






If you like delicious healthy ice cream this is a recipe for you. It’s not only low in calories but it’s full of fruity goodness. We love making recipes like this around our house because you feel like you are getting something bad for you when you are craving bad, but in truth you are getting nothing but goodness!

I have altered the original recipe a bit, but the original is included down at the bottom. Check out The Primal Home for some fun and healthy recipes.

As I posted below if you are not planning on eating this right away you may end up with a solid block. No it doesn’t freeze like ice cream… it freezes more like ice. In the past I have added 2 tbsp. of  whip cream vodka to the recipe to prevent it from freezing. Although this isn’t a healthy option it’s a way to prevent it from freezing all the way and BTW you won’t taste the vodka. 

Ingredients:
  • 1 medium banana, sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup strawberries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup (More or less) unsweetened coconut milk (Depending on the size of your banana) 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions:
  1. Place the frozen bananas and strawberries into a blender. Start blending then add in the vanilla and coconut milk. 
  2. Once it is nice and smooth but still very thick scoop it out and enjoy! It needs to be eaten right away as it will not keep very well in the freezer. 
  3. If you do not want to eat it right away add 2 tbsp. of vodka this will prevent it from freezing. (I use whip cream vodka when needed)
  4. Makes 2 servings.
