A delicious, skinny, dairy-free, sugar-free, 2-ingredient breakfast treat!
Is that an oxymoron?! 😉 Not anymore!
It’s a Wednesday… Middle of the week… So I thought of giving my creamy ice-cream posts a break and present this totally guilt-free fruity treat!
Still can not believe your eyes?
Trust me guys… This ice-
cream is magical! Totally melt-in-your-mouth kind!
Tastes totally rich (even if it’s not!) and decadent!
Make it either post-workout and gobble it up immediately (which is just what I did!) or make it pre-workout, chuck it in a freezer and polish it off once you’re back from sweating out!
Totally acceptable as a dessert too!
So how did I accomplish this? If you remember my Mango & Banana Oatmeal Smoothie with a hint of Basil and Peach, Apricot & Banana Minty Milk Smoothie recipe, then you know how I had used frozen banana chunks to get a silky smooth consistency for my smoothies. Frozen banana chunks get a total make-over when they are whipped in a blender. If you don’t like bananas then this is even better because they don’t even taste like bananas anymore after freezing and whipping! Super-ripe bananas give the best of results! I always have frozen bananas sitting in my freezer waiting to be used! If you don’t then freeze the fruit for at least 2 hours prior to making this.
To whipped frozen banana goodness, I added frozen strawberries and the result is in front of you! Put on your thinking caps and start thinking of all the different flavors you can eat this way and that too guilt-free! Add cocoa powder or peanut butter or Nutella or frozen mango cubes or frozen peach cubes… Let me know what you would like to experiment with!
Skinny Strawberry & Banana Ice-
Yields: 4 scoops
- 1 large overripe banana, cut in to chunks and frozen
- 4 large strawberries, frozen
- chocolate-chips for topping (optional)
Add the frozen fruit in a blender or food processor bowl and whip for 30 seconds. Scrap down the sides and whip it again till you get a smooth, soft-serve kinda consistency.
Serve immediately topped with chocolate-chips (if using) or re-freeze any left-overs and let soften slightly before enjoying!
