In yesterday’s coffee talk I promised to have an amazing ice cream recipe for you so here it is. This recipe was inspired by BodyRocker Abigail who shared with us her One Ingredient Ice Cream recipe in July. I couldn’t stop thinking about her idea ever since and was dying to try different variations :) I wasn’t able to do that on our trip to Europe (this recipe requires a freezer and blender which isn’t an option in most hotel rooms) so I’m thrilled that I am finally able take a first attempt at a home made ice cream recipe. Anytime you have cravings for expensive, sugar loaded, store bought ice cream, you can make this healthy alternative that is just as tasty and takes only 5 minutes to prepare.
I used these ingredients: 1 banana, 2 tblsp of crunchy (or nutty) peanut butter, 1/2 tsp of Vanilla extract, and 1 scoop of the pure protein powder that I use.
First of all you have to have freeze the banana so I suggest that you break it into smaller pieces, put it into a plastic container and keep it in the freezer over night.
Put the frozen banana into a blender and add two table spoons of peanut butter.
Add 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla extract.
The last ingredient is 1 scoop of my pure protein powder. This protein powder is all natural and it doesn’t have any taste so you can add it into any meal or drink.
Blend all of the ingredients in your kitchen robot :) until you get this beautiful smooth ice cream.
How you serve your ice cream is totaly up to you. I scooped my portion into a small coffee cup and sprinkled the top with cinnamon (the cinnamon ads an extra flavour that makes it even better). There are 350 calories in the entire amount and my portion represents about 1/3. It’s a sweet little dessert that will brighten up your day :)
That’s my finger – I couldn’t hold back anymore :)
I really enjoyed this treat and I hope you guys will too. If you have any variations or ideas for making this even tastier, please leave your suggestions in the comments below. Just remember that the basic ingredient for this ice cream is the frozen banana.
