A healthy twist on your favorite dessert! Better than sorbet and made with real fruit and ingredients!
With my birthday weekend coming to end, I thought that after all the cake and goodies, I would share one of my favorite ice cream/sorbet alternatives made with freezer staple items!
Nice cream is all the rave these days and I have jumped on board. All you need is frozen bananas (which is great when you have overripe bananas and you aren't feeling banana bread - freeze them!) Your can make nice cream with ANY flavor! I personally LOVE flavoring it with blueberry, pineapple and pitaya!
This nice cream recipe is a simple and delicious recipe and you can add your favorite fruit to the blended frozen bananas and enjoy dessert without the guilt.
This is a low fat, low calorie and natural sugar option to that pint of ice cream ;) Enjoy!
