it's a scientific fact that as temperatures rise so to does the desire (my desire specifically) to consume as much ice cream as possible. #figurefriendlynotsomuch
being that isn't the healthiest of choices, it's important to find work arounds, like turning frozen fruit into the creamy, soft serve 'ice cream' everyone loves.
the secret ingredient, which is no secret to this blog of course, is bananas.
incredibly delicious with no added sugar, saturated fat, cholesterol, and yet all of the flavour one would expect out of a bowl of ice cream. in the past i've added coco powder, peanut butter, and the the delightful combination of both.
thanks to the good folks from 'yonanas' you can now do just the same. this small kitchen gadget turns bananas into delicious creamy soft serve with zero guilt. hello, summertime!
today my craving for cookies 'n cream has taken over, and now i have a guilt-free mid afternoon snack to help beat this heat.
thanks yonanas! xo.
