With the warm weather upon us, it is important to stay cool and hydrated. Our family loves to enjoy summer time snacks, with ice cream being high up on our list! How can you resist a cold ice cream cone on a hot day? It’s like the two go hand in hand!
What I don’t like is all the extra, unnecessary ingredients. I was surprised to find out just how easy it is to make your own homemade ice cream. Not only does this help your budget but you will also be making a healthier food choice.
This easy to make ice cream recipe makes enough ice cream for two people, so if you want to double it up feel free to.
What You Will Need:
- A food processor (we have a mini one which is perfect for our four person household)
- Frozen banana
- 6-7 sliced frozen strawberries
In advance, cut up your banana in slices. Place them in a baggie and then into the freezer. During the summer we usually have three to four bags frozen at any given time (especially since bananas are great for baking!).
After your bananas are frozen, place them in the food processor. Using the grind option, start to break the banana down. Once they are halfway broken down, add the frozen strawberries.
