Strawberry Banana (Ice) Kream

To me the best ice kream is made up of bananas and no dairy. It is healthy, low-fat, and contains no cholesterol, or the acidic animal protein — found in all animal product — that will leach out your calcium and magnesium to neutralize the acids it formed in your body. Instead, you’ll be getting a good amount of vitamins and minerals. Banana is a great fruit because it has a little bit of everything for nutrition. It is a staple to my diet. Most people I know think that bananas are just a good source of potassium. True, it is, but it’s more than that: You’re obtaining more vitamin C, vitamin B6, copper, magnesium and manganese than you are of potassium. And you get so much more nutrition than that — you get all vitamins (except vitamin B12 of course), protein and minerals — including calcium, omega 3 and omega 6!

Below is a simple and easy recipe to make when you’re feeling like a yummy dessert, snack, or just plain craving ice cream. From just four bananas, you are getting quite a bit of nutrition — and not to mention the nutrition intake from the strawberries as well.

Blend in a Vitamix or a food processor until smooth. Then enjoy! Share if you’d like (or not). I devoured it all by myself — yum!

I use bananas as a base for all of my ice kreams I make at home. Sometimes I use blueberries to make blueberry ice kream, vanilla for vanilla ice kream, or just plain banana ice kream. It’s easy to create whatever flavor you desire, so give it a whirl! I’ll be trying raspberries, cherries and blackberries for my next flavors.

Also, if you want to make “yogurt” try this: Use the same ingredients and method as above, but add half a cup of almond milk and make sure the bananas are mostly thawed out and blend until smooth and creamy. The thickness and texture will taste like strawberry yogurt. Eat it plain, or make a parfait out of it.

As always, cheers to your health!

  1. Omg I’m totally going to try this! There’s a lot of ice cream that contains corn syrup and I can’t have it. This seems simple enough 🙂 can I use frozen blueberries?

    • Yup, totally. I’ve used blueberries, vanilla, and even ate it plain. It’s all so good. You’ll like the blueberry a lot. It’s one of my favorites. I just ate that whole bowl by myself after dinner and it was so yummy!
