Here’s a wonderful way to make a delicious, healthy frozen dessert super-fast!
This delicious ice cream has three ingredients and a fraction of the sugar and fat you’d find in bought ice cream. The bananas create creamy texture without cream, and it’s easily adapted to a dairy-free option. Kids love it and can make it themselves, and you can vary the fruit – just use your imagination and what’s in season. The Vitamix is so powerful this takes just seconds to do.
