7 Delicious Healthy Ice Cream Recipes

When the sun is shining on a hot summer’s day, there’s nothing like a scoop of ice cream to cool you down and make you smile.

But when you’re trying to eat healthy, ice cream is usually the first thing to go.

Now, if you’re cutting out that sugary, processed ice cream you find at the store, we’re glad! Half the time, it’s made with more chemicals than cream and will only make you feel worse in the long run.

Thankfully, not all ice cream is bad. If you use the right ingredients, you won’t have to say goodbye to your dessert.

In fact, we’ve got some recipes that are honest-to-goodness healthy. Not “healthy for ice cream” or “less bad than Ben & Jerry’s.” Our ice cream is full of whole, nutrient-rich ingredients that are good for your body and perfect for that idyllic summer’s day.

Banana Ice Creams

All these recipes are made with a base of one simple ingredient: frozen bananas. The frozen fruit gives a surprisingly creamy, smooth texture while the subtle banana flavor pairs well with many ingredients.

We know that banana ice cream can sound a little strange, but trust us, it’s a fiber and vitamin filled treat that you’ll crave.
