When I say summer, what is the first word that comes to mind?

If you said ‘ice cream’ I won’t blame you. I am sure it was among your top 5 thoughts. Don’t worry, it is on my brain too.

But when you are on the path towards a lifestyle of good health and whole foods, there is not much room for ice cream… or so you may have thought.

But you are mistaken! There is always room for ice cream (even for breakfast).

When you are craving ice cream, but also care about your health, all I can say is – thank god for banana ice cream!!! It’s a total life-saver!

Banana ice cream is raw, vegan, healthy and delicious! You can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner… and of course as a snack or as a dessert!

Banana ice cream is super easy to make too! Peel and freeze your ripe bananas (best if you freeze them sliced) and when you are ready to make ice cream, just blend them.

Seriously, it’s that easy and I’ve got 15 recipes below for you to try right now! You won’t be sorry! 🙂

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
