Yummy - delicious - rich, creamy, HEALTHY - treat

Saturday, July 20, 2013

I got home from the pool and all the way home I was thinking about a treat - I thought I might have an ice pop, I thought I might have some dark chocolate, but when I walked in, Ed, said to me, "Mom, I have a treat for you." He then offered me a small bowl of yummy soft ice cream - okay, it wasn't even ice cream. It was a frozen (over ripe) banana with a tablespoon of chopped nuts added and then blended up in the blender for long enough to create the ice creamy texture. No sugar added - no milk added - nothing but banana and a few nuts to add something different.

After my pool time, it was pure heaven - AND PURE healthy - had carbs (healthy ones) and protein (and some healthy fats too). He made himself some too but added cocoa powder to his and let me try that too and both were really good and good for us too.

    I have seen this on pintest and bought bananas today. Can't wait to freeze and try. Whoever came up with this originally was a lifesaver!

    That Ed is just awesome and how thoughtful of him and insightful that he had ready a healthy really cold treat for you. It does sound delicious and refreshing. I'm always freezing ripe bananas and putting them in a bag in the freezer so Brent can use them to make his much loved Smoothies. He just uses cut up frozen banana pieces, non-fat milk and if we have any he'll put some berries in it and blend this mixture. He loves them and has a tendency to make too many of them as we run out of a gallon of milk so fast, ugh. They are really good but I don't like drinking my calories very often even though they are low calorie. You're probably fast asleep by now with Ed up and listening to some good music.

Hugs & Love,

    This sounds very good. I like to eat my bananas with vanilla 'Light and Fit' yogurt and some Cocoa Almonds.

    Sounds good! I have often sliced a banana and frozen it when it was getting ripe but have never put it in the blender!

    Wow ! I just, today, saw a recipe that used 4 bananas to make 4 servings... the thought crossed my little pea brain I wonder if it can be done for just one serving.... Now I know that it is true. and a few chopped nuts makes it sound even better.. Thanks for sharing... (Thank Ed, too !)

    Sounds delicious. I have some over ripe bananas that I was going to throw away because I don't like them like that, but you just gave me a great idea. Thank you so much.
