Who doesn’t love a big bowl of ice cream on a hot summer day, or as the perfect sweet treat to cap off a delicious meal? The trouble with it is that it’s loaded with sugar, just itching to attack your teeth and cause cavities.
If you’re looking for a tooth-friendly recipe that contains the sweet, creamy goodness of banana ice cream without all the added sugar (and calories!) of the original, your search is over. This is a recipe you can make for your family that everyone will rave about – including your orthodontist!
The best part? You can flavor it with a number of ingredients!
Banana Ice Cream Ingredients and Direction
You will need:
– 2 large bananas, frozen
– 1/4 cup skim milk
1. Place the bananas in a food processor or blender.
2. Puree 1 minute, then scrape down sides.
3. Add milk, puree 2-4 more minutes, scraping down sides after each minute.
4. Serve with fruit topping, or on its own.
This is a great tooth friendly recipe because it combines fresh bananas, with all their potassium, and the fantastic calcium-containing milk. As far as sweet, frozen treats go, you can’t do much better than this banana ice cream!
If you’d like to switch it up a little, or just add an unexpected twist, consider these fun add-ins:
– Crushed nuts (peanuts, walnuts, pistachios)
– Frozen berries (puree with banana before adding milk)
– Peanut butter
– Cinnamon or Cardamom
These are all low-calorie and healthy ways to take your ice cream to a whole new level! In fact, if you’re hosting a birthday party or want to make a family night special, consider setting up a sundae bar. Serve this frozen banana treat alongside all the fixings and let the little ones mix and match as they like.
