one ingredient ice cream

You heard me.  One ingredient.  And surprisingly yummy.  I heard about this a few months ago and tried it right away, and I don't think I wrote about it here.  It's a really nice refreshing dessert for those creamy-sweet cravings, without all of the guilt.  This one ingredient is sweet and creamy and really pretty good for you.  Bananas.  It sounds crazy and potentially not tasty, but it really is impressively smooth and creamy and perfect.  All you do is freeze your ripe bananas (make sure they're ripe or it'll turn out bitter), and once they're frozen, throw them in your food processor.  You might have to add a teaspoon or two of milk (or soy milk, almond milk, whatever) but nothing else.  Turns out like soft serve and you can eat *almost* as much as you want without feeling guilty at all.  Yay for amazing healthy treats!

I'm not a fan of bananas, but this is definitely something I'm willing to give a try! Thanks for the tip!

It's hard to believe that's just a banana... I need to give this a try just because it's so unbelievable!

I can't believe it! That sounds like a perfect treat for me since I'm constantly eating bananas. Thanks Lillian!

We just tried it...so good! I admit, we added a bit of Hershey's syrup, but just got the sake of it being dessert. But I'm way excited about it--thanks for sharing!
