Healthy “ice cream” replacement made with all natural ingredients.
If you have been reading my blog for some time, you know that I’ve got a little addiction to:
*…and a few more things
From Shanghai I brought back with me a few jars of Realicious nut and seed butters. Since it’s getting hot here in the south of Italy and I was craving ice cream and, since I am trying to drop some kgs I have accumulated in my “bulk” season, I decided to opt for a healthier ice cream: my very much beloved nice cream (AKA banana ice cream). To incorporate some healthy fats and avoid adding more sugars from extra fruits, I made a pumpkin seed butter recipe.
Let me tell you, this staff is GOOD, REAL GOOD!
Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
Ingredients (serves 2):
- 2 large very ripe frozen bananas, sliced
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seed butter
- 1/8 tsp vanilla paste
- 1/2 stp spirulina powder
Place all ingredients into a powerful food processor
pulse until creamy
Transfer into a container and place in your freezer for at least 1 hour. Scoop it out and serve it up.
I added a few mixed seeds (flaxs, pumpkin and sunflower) and some chopped fresh strawberries.
Store it in your freezer for a few days. Before serving, for a creamy texture, place the nice cream into your fridge for an hour.
