Bananas are a serious favorite of mine. We go through an entire bunch of bananas in two days tops in our home!
Not only are they absolutely delicious, but they are loaded with vitamins and minerals for a strong and healthy body. Read more about the health benefits of bananas by clicking here.
Over the years I have come up with some great and unique ways to add bananas to some of my healthiest dishes. Yes, bananas happen to be my go-to for smoothies, but what other ways can they be utilized to add not only nutrition, but tons of flavor to your every day faves?
Here is my absolute favorite banana recipe…in the entire world:
Banana ice cream.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. So you’ve heard of banana ice cream before. But did you know there’s more than one way to make it? I’ve got a recipe for you that will literally make you crave health food in a serious way.
Here’s my twist on banana ice cream… Please do not be mad at me when you can’t sleep at night until you’ve had this dessert :)
*1.5 frozen bananas
*approx. 12 oz frozen organic mangos
*4-8 oz unsweetened almond milk (amount depends on how dense you’d like your ice cream to be. Start with 4 oz and work up to 8 slowly, if you feel it needs more liquid)
*1-2 tablespoons unsweetened and raw almond butter (depends how much you like almond butter)
*pink Himalayan sea salt
*Vitamix or powerful blender
Add bananas, mangos and almond milk to blender or Vitamix. Run blender until consistency is nice and smooth. You may need to stop blending once or twice in between to “mush” ingredients around.
Once the consistency is where you’d like it to be, add almond butter and pulse blender 2 or 3 times, to just mix it in, almost like an almond “swirl.”
Using a spoon or spatula, put ice cream into serving bowls. Add a sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt on top and serve.
Serves 2-3 people.
This recipe is 90% raw, detoxifying, loaded with minerals, blood sugar balancing, creamy, sweet and savory all at the same time. So many health benefits in just one single serving. Enjoy!
