Diabetes friendly- and easy as PIE dessert....nope not actual pie but something even better

So, I had to quickly update about a great ice cream dessert that is super easy to make, AND healthy?

CRAZY. Also, super super cheap!

You ever buy a bunch of bananas and by the time you have eaten all you can, there is always 1 or 2 that have gotten too soft or spotted for you to eat? Well some would say throw into the freezer to make banana bread later with them. I say the same thing except peel and chop, then freeze in a bag. If you do them two to a bag it makes it easier for serving up in smaller amounts as ICE CREAM!

You need a Food processor or Vita Mix though for this.

Vanilla Ice Cream (made out of bananas for the base)

1. 2 frozen bananas chopped up
2. 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
3. you can add some ice cubes or a bit a milk to get the consistency you want

Spoon into two bowls or have it all to yourself!

It is the creamiest texture and is super yummy. It should almost be bad for you but its not. No added sugar and not a ton of milk fat for the base.

Eat it all the time. I just started replenishing my frozen bananas in the freezer and starting this new routine was easier then planning out dinners ahead of time. I generally have bananas in the house. Try it with adding other ingredients you like, nuts, raw chocolate powder or syrup, blend in other fruits like strawberries or also add protein powder.
