Banana Ice Cream

Okay, this is an awesome recipe!  It is totally healthy, and is not really made of ice cream... yet you will be blown away by how much like ice cream it really is!

One ripe banana diced and frozen
1 oz Cream Cheese frozen
1 scoop vanilla protein powder

Prepare before hand, the banana and cream cheese.  Make sure the banana is very ripe, like you would use for banana bread.  Be sure to use freezer bags for the bananas to help prevent them from turning brown.  I found 1 oz single serving packets of cream cheese at our local Sam's Club, and I just keep all of them in the freezer so they are ready to use.

After both items are frozen, put them in a food processor with a scoop of vanilla protein powder.  Begin to chop and grind until smooth.  Stir and scrape as needed.  

The mixture will take on the texture of ice cream.  Put it in a bowl and eat your full meal complete with protein, carb, and healthy fat!  Not to mention how filling it is!

This is one of my absolute favorite meals!  Give it a try!  you'll be hooked!

Note:  If you do not want to use cream cheese and protein powder, you can just use the bananas alone and get the same affect.

Happy losing!

  1. this is SO good! i have tried it with the cream cheese, and i have also just substituted milk instead, as well. it is REALLY tasty and curbs that sweet tooth of mine, too! :)

  2. It is totally awesome! I can't remember where the original idea, of just the frozen bananas, came from...but I decided to add in the cream cheese and protein.... so indulgent! thanks for commenting!
