My four year old loves ice cream for dessert. What kid doesn't?
I'm not a fan of giving it to her too often, though, because it's not the healthiest in the world. She does usually choose the fruit varieties over the chocolatey kinds, so that's something right? They're all packed with sugar, though.
And the last thing I need is a toddler hopped up on sugar right before bed. If you have kids, I know you're with me on this.
There is the sugar free. But, that's way worse than the regular ones because when they take the sugar out, they pump the chemicals in. No, thank you. I'd rather give her the real sugar than the fake stuff.
I recently came across the idea of this frozen banana ice cream on Pinterest. You know what's in it?
No extra sugar, no dairy, no fat. No ice cream maker or rock salt required.
Too good to be true? Oh no, friends. This one's a keeper. Blend the bananas in your food processor and the result is exactly like soft serve ice cream. Ah-mazingly good. And because I can't resist the peanut butter/banana combo, I threw some in for added yumminess. TRY IT!
