How to Make Healthy Ice Cream with Only One Ingredient (Kopie)

*****
We are all aware that many people struggle to lose weight because they can’t bear the thought of giving up their favorite foods, such as pizza, chocolate or ice cream. Fortunately, there is no need to give up the ice cream because there is a very easy way to make a really healthy ice cream substitute at home.

If you haven’t yet heard of frozen banana ice cream, you are going to be amazed. This is a recipe that can change your life. It is a one-ingredient ice cream that has no added fat, no weird chemicals or preservatives and contains only the natural sugar of the bananas.

The really amazing part is that this healthy dessert has a smooth, creamy texture that very successfully mimics real full-fat ice cream. This is very important when you are trying to eat healthy because you can fool yourself into thinking it is a real ice cream. This is also a great way to make kids that don’t like eating fruit to get part of their daily intake.

Here is a step-by-step of how to do it:

Magic ingredient: BANANAS

Directions:

1.You can use as many bananas as you want. They should be very ripe. The best bananas for the ice cream are those that have a spotty peel but the inside is not brown. If the bananas are under-ripe the ice cream will have a bitter taste.
2.Peel the bananas.
3.Slice up the bananas into bottle cap-sized pieces.
4.Arrange the pieces in a single layer on a plate or in a plastic bag and freeze for about 2 hours.
5.Once frozen, put the pieces in a food processor and puree until creamy. Depending on the amount of bananas, how frozen they are and the size of the food processor, you may have to stop the blending a few times and scrape the mixture from the sides of the processor.
6.After the blending, the consistency of the bananas will be of soft serve ice cream. Serve immediately.
7.Use healthy toppings like strawberries, blueberries, honey or nuts.
8.If you like firmer ice cream, return to the freezer for about 30 minutes.
