Guiltless Banana Ice Cream

The ultimate “guilt-free” frozen ice cream treat made with only ONE ingredient, over-ripe bananas! No cream, or sugar added. Finally it’s OK have ice cream for breakfast.

You know those bananas sitting on your counter, the ones with all those brown spots that you think are passed their prime. Well those bananas make the BEST dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, fat-free, frozen ice cream treat.  (Cute spoons can be found on Etsy For Such A Time Designs )

On my recent trip to the Dole Banana Summit, I was introduced to my first Yonanas Ice Cream Treat Maker – coolest machine EVER! You basically take your over-ripe bananas, freeze them, then run them through this simple machine. Out comes a healthy frozen, soft-serve banana ice cream.

So easy, and fun to make with the family. Ever since I got my Yonanas, we’ve been experimenting with all the possibilities but quite honestly my favorite is some chopped walnuts and berries. I put some colored sprinkles on my toddler’s and she loves it.

You can also add other frozen fruit such as berries, pineapple, mango or if you want something a little more decadent you can add some dark chocolate, or peanut butter. Think of the possibilities!

Now, if you don’t own a Yonanas, you can still make this frozen treat in a food processor , simply freeze the bananas and process until smooth and creamy.  The ultimate guilt-free snack, breakfast or dessert!
