It’s Ice Cream Day!

Who doesn’t enjoy this delicious treat from time-to-time, especially during summer? However, when trying to keep weight off and stay healthy, ice cream is the treat to avoid, right? Well…maybe not. What if there’s an ice cream that, after scraping the remains from your bowl, will leave you feeling satisfied, energized, light and even healthier than before you started eating it. You may be thinking that’s not possible. Just wait and see.

Let’s discover a creamy ice cream with just one ingredient (yes, that’s right — one ingredient) that we can make at home with our families.

Turns out, if you freeze bananas until hard, then add to your food processor or blender, they becomes this creamy, delicious, custardy, gooey treat that you can enjoy all hours of the day without ever feeling guilty!
