Ice cream is one of my all-time favorite desserts. Forget hot chocolate- even in the midst of a frigid Michigan winter, I will somehow find my way to the nearest ice cream shop or frozen dessert aisle in the grocery store. There’s just nothing as comforting as a spoonful of Ben & Jerry’s snuggled up in front of the TV on a couch. I know plenty of other people share this similar love for ice cream, and I also know many who struggle to satisfy their sweet cravings while managing the excess sugar they put into their bodies. These days more and more brands like Halo Top and Arctic Zero have come around with lower calorie and, as people mistakenly believe, more “health conscious” ways to indulge; however, cutting calories and swapping real ingredients for processed alternatives, isn’t necessarily healthier. That being said, if you want to “healthify” the classic treat and still eat real food, I got you. All you need is one key ingredient: bananas. That’s right, a dairy-free (for all my lactose-intolerant ice cream lovers), vegan, and gluten-free ice cream with none of the added sugars and other BS. Plus, banana bread. What more could you want? This recipe is great for sharing with your family and friends and you can pop it straight in the freezer to save for your next sweet craving!
