Written by: Brandi Monasco
It’s officially summer and here in Texas, man, is it HOT. And it’s not the “dry” heat either. We deal with humidity almost on a daily basis, which makes the heat even more miserable.
And you know how we Texans like to cool off during the summer?
With ICE CREAM!
Summer is the best time to enjoy a bowl of frozen ice cream and the more healthy it is, the better!
When you’re trying to eat healthy, but still crave that sweet taste, try this delicious recipe for homemade, healthy ice cream!
It’s THAT simple!
Double Chocolate Ice Cream
- 2 frozen bananas
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1 cup almond milk
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour the mixture into a freezer safe container and place in the freezer until solid.
- Scoop into bowls and enjoy!
Now, why is it healthy?
Bananas: Bananas are one of the world’s most popular fruits as well as one of the healthiest fruits. Bananas are loaded with potassium that your body needs to help lower your blood pressure by the dilation of your blood vessels. And because they lower your blood pressure, bananas are also great for your heart health.
The potassium in bananas also help in preventing loss of muscle mass as well as helping to support the preservation of bone density. Bananas are also fat-free and cholesterol-free and they only contain 110 calories each!
Almond Milk: Almond milk provides 30% of the daily recommended amount of calcium that your body needs. Calcium helps to maintain the strength and health of your bones and teeth. Almond milk also contains vitamin D that helps to keep your blood veins in optimal shape, allowing them to maintain good blood pressure.
And the chocolate, well, that’s just the best part of the ice cream! Have you ever tried to make your own healthy ice cream at home?
