When I had Huff the Tot, I was very much committed to losing the baby weight quickly. After having Huff the Babe, however, my attitude is much more laid back.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d like to be back to my pre-baby bod, but if I can choose between taking an hour-long nap and an hour on the treadmill, Imma choose nap. Because of this, I told myself that I’ve REALLY got to start watching what I eat. I decided to start giving my usual splurges a healthy makeover, starting with ice cream!
I remembered there was an episode of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood (yes, you read that right; I’m a mom, yo) in which Daniel and his mom make one-ingredient banana “ice cream”. I Googled the recipe and got to work.
Here’s what you need:
That’s it. Bananas. As many or as few as you’d like (or have on-hand).
First, slice up the bananas and place them in an air-tight container:
Then, pop the slices in the freezer. Ideally, you should leave them in overnight, but they can stay in as little as two hours.
After they’ve frozen, pop them in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is creamy:
After that, pour the mixture into another air-tight container and place it back in the freezer (again, either for a few hours or overnight. I left mine in overnight…mostly because I forgot about it-ha!).
I REALLY liked this! It had the consistency of gelato and was super yummy! Plus, it gave me that ice-cream-feeling without being full of fat and processed ingredients that I don’t need. This was a definite win!
