A Healthy Ice Cream Alternative You'll Love

Want to lose weight but can't resist high-fat desserts like ice cream? Don't worry — you're definitely not alone. Ice cream can be called the "quintessential dessert" for many generations. But with all the cream and sugar that goes into a batch of ice cream, it may not be the best food item for your diet and exercise plan. Thankfully, there is a tasty alternative for this beloved dessert! The next time you have a craving for something sweet, try making banana "ice cream" instead.   You can make a tasty, creamy treat out of bananas instead of resorting to a tub of ice cream. All you have to do is freeze and blend a banana for a creamy, sweet, lower-calorie treat! All you need are 2 to 4 ripe bananas.  Steps: Peel and chop bananas into small chunks. Put them into a plastic bag and freeze them for 2 to 4 hours. Remove the bananas from the bag and blend them in a food processor until creamy and smooth. Serve your healthy and delicious ice cream alternative in a bowl or in a traditional cone.   One medium-sized banana contains around 105 calories. Bananas are also loaded with potassium and other vitamins and are naturally low-fat. What do you have to lose?   Fold in other fresh fruits — like chopped strawberries, blueberries or kiwi — almonds, toasted unsweetened coconut or even pretzel pieces if you like your desserts to be salty-sweet.   Finding alternatives like banana ice cream is one of the best ways to enjoy the cuisine you love without the added guilt and calories. You can eat this ice cream all by its sweet self, or you can spice it up with fun mix-ins, just as if you were at an ice cream shop.
