The Guilt-Free ‘Ice Cream’

Every other week, Nikita heads to the kitchen to test out recipes we think the mang’Oh community will love.  As a twist on the usual healthy fare, our recipes are usually sweet treats that incorporate an abundance of fruits, veggies, whole grains and nuts.  We believe that “real food” treats eaten in moderation can add some fun and variation to a healthy, plant-based diet.  We hope you’ll try them out and let us know what you think!

What an easy and great dessert to make on a hot day! No added sugar or cream, yet just as delicious as ice cream.

Besides the amazingly creamy taste, this dessert is packed with protein,  potassium, fiber and many vitamins and minerals. Best of all, you don’t have to feel guilty while you’re enjoying it.

Ingredients

2 Ripe bananas
1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter ( I prefer the one with less sugar because i find it too sweet otherwise

Directions

  1. Slice bananas and put them onto a sheet of baking paper
  2. Put into the freezer for 1-2 hours
  3. Take them out and put them into a powerful food processor
  4. Once smooth, add the peanut butter and combine

You can add other flavors to the bananas such as chocolate chips to make it chocolate-y.  Enjoy!
