Healthy Soft Serve. That sounds like a gimmick, right? Like “Low-Fat Soft Serve”, made with some overly-processed powdered milk so it’s not really any better for you… or even if it is, it tastes like garbage. But this stuff’s the real deal, I promise. With nothing but frozen fruit and all-natural flavors (like lemon juice, cocoa powder, cinnamon, ginger, or other spices), it’s a treat everyone can love. You don’t even need any added sugars–not even a drop of honey–because bananas are naturally so sweet.
Banana-based ice cream isn’t a new thing. In fact, it’s something of a trend in the health food communities, with tons of variations out there, and for good reason. It’s freakin’ delicious! So next time you find yourself craving a cone, whip up this ultra-easy recipe instead. If you keep some frozen fruit on hand, it will only take a couple of minutes to prepare. You could be eating it in less than the time it took you to read this post. How awesome is that?
But that’s not even the best part. This particular recipe is for Raspberry-Lemon Soft Serve, but there are lots of other cool flavors you can make. Check ’em out:
