It’s National Ice Cream Day! And here at Two Young Ladies, we LOVE ice cream. We love making it, and we of course, love eating it. We had so many different ice cream recipes to post, but we thought we would mix it up, and post a healthy version of a classic.
What? Healthy ice cream? No your eyes did not deceive you, and the best part is, you don’t need an ice cream maker! Yes, this ice cream churn free. All you need is a food processor.
If you can’t have heavy cream, you can use coconut milk or your favorite non dairy substitute.
Healthy Strawberry and Banana Ice Cream
- 1 Cup Strawberries (Sliced)
- 2 Banans (Sliced)
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- Zest of 1 Lemon
- 1 Tablespoon Turbinado Sugar
- 4 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
THE NIGHT BEFORE you want to make this, slice your strawberries and bananas and put them in the freezer to freeze.
When you’re ready to make your ice cream, put the bananas and strawberries in a food processor. Pulse until the bananas and strawberries have broken up.
Next, add the zest, extract, and sugar. Pulse until combined.
With the food processor running, slowly add the heavy cream. Pulse until smooth. Transfer to a freezer safe container and enjoy!
