The most delicious post-workout treat ever: Sweet, Banana ice cream

Hello! Hello! Hello! Let’s make sweet Banana Ice Cream!

Bananas are the staple fruit for any health conscious eater because it’s so good for you. Just some of the health benefits of bananas include bowel regularity (sorry), they can dramatically help to improve weight loss since they have a low-calorie count while being deliciously sweet, and here’s something a lot of people don’t know – bananas are good for your eyes. The little bits of Vitamin A in bananas help to regulate clear vision.

Who can say no to that?

Not me.

Let’s get to it.

To make banana ice cream you will need one ingredient – seriously. Aside from the perks of a healthy body, making this delicious treat is just so much easier than making anything else remotely as sweet and beneficial.

What you’ll need:

6 large bananas
1 cutting knife
A sealable plastic container
A blender

This shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to make. You can opt to use more or less bananas according to your preference.

STEP 1:

Peel and slice the bananas into tiny chunks using your cutting knife and prepare to blend.

STEP 2:

Blend the banana chunks to a smoothie-like texture.

STEP 3:

Pour the blended banana pump into your sealable container and freeze as desired.

It’s really that simple.

Once the ice cream is frozen, scoop yourself a good helping to enjoy after a long day or post-workout.

Top Tips:

Switch things up by flavouring your ice cream with berries and nuts. I like to use crushed almonds but you can also use peanut butter – add three tablespoons of peanut butter before blending to freeze.

I’d decided to make this post-workout treat one day after my cousin was planning to throw away perfectly good, ripe bananas one day. If your bananas begin to display brown stops, don’t throw them away, use them to make your ice cream. The riper your banana ice, the sweeter your ice cream will be.

It’s totally worth the sweet, refreshing taste.
