My Favourite Ice Cream aka The Healthy Choco-Banana Ice Cream

This is very very hard for be to blog, simply because there are A MILLION GAZILLION amazing flavours that you can experiment with when it comes to banana ice-cream. But that is definitely a GOOD thing. Expect many more of these to come. I have done strawberry, cherry, mango, chocolate, peanut butter, grape, date, oh-my-God I can't even think of all the flavours you can experiment with. All I can say is that...You better start experimenting and sharing your inventions with me! 

This recipe happens to be completely vegan and GUILT FREE. Did I say guilt free already? Let me say it again - it is completely GUILT FREE. Now let me introduce you to a world where you can eat ice cream, every day, and eat your body to health. Now, I am going to give you two recipes.

On the photo (a bit melted already because missy here was trying to get a nice photo): 

1) Chocolate Protein Banana Ice Cream

2-4 bananas frozen bananas (they were cut into little pieces in my freezer, I am unsure)

1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I struggle to eat enough protein, since there is close-to-zero halal meat here, and protein shakes are just an amazing and delicious way to get that extra protein-intake and it's an ideal post-workout drink to just mix with milk or water, but this is mainly for my fitness-junkies out there!)

I blended these two together, and it was a tad too sweet for my taste, so I added:

1 tbsp raw cacao powder 
I added some frozen cherries on top and there you go. 

Now, I am going to go out on a limb, and assume that the majority of my followers do not have protein powders at home, so since I am already sharing a choco-flavor, then I will share with you my other favourite, the Healthy Reese's Ice Cream if you will:

4-5 frozen bananas
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons nut butter 

Add all the ingredients to your high-speed blender or food processor, or even a hand-mixer can work. Blend all together. I have a Vitamix, so there is no problem, but if you have a blender that is not that powerful, then it definitely helps to add either a bit of milk or water, and keep scraping the excess off the sides and scooping the mix around, so it would get right into the blade, as opposed to just running around and around and around without anything really happening. This happened to me with my old food processor whenever I wanted to add dates or nuts..round and round we went, and went, and went...and nothing. 

Serve right away. Enjoy!

Add whatever toppings you want (seeds, nuts, cinnamon...up to you) if you want any! 

Thank me later! Don't forget to #teamhealthyeslimah and stay healthy!

Love you,
