Ice Cream for Breakfast

  • ~2 minutes

I LOOOOOVE ice cream. It’s one of my favorite desserts. I really love gelato and fruity types, so I have been dying to try this “breakfast ice cream”. Of course, I didn’t make mine for breakfast. I made it for dessert!! You can let your kids have it for breakfast EVERY morning and they will think they have the best mom ever.

bananas
First, you start out with a few bananas. I grabbed 5 so I would have a few servings, but you could use 2 for one serving.

Cut or break the bananas up into small chunks. Put them on a plate or in a container and freeze them for 2 hours. I let mine freeze over night and they got WAY too hard. If you freeze them over night, pull them out a little while before you start to make your ice cream so they aren’t so hard to blend.

I added a handful of chocolate covered strawberries I had hidden in the freezer.

blending-away
I started to blend like a mad woman and NOTHING was happening. I stuck the spoon in the a few times trying to push the frozen fruit down, hitting the blade and scaring the ever loving crap out of myself. After that, I decided to toss in a heaping spoonful of Greek yogurt to give it a little “liquid”.

Of course, the yogurt didn’t work much and I just needed to let the bananas soften up a bit.

Blend, scrape, blend, scrape, voila!! Delicious, healthy ice cream!!

Of course, I made extra so I put a serving into a jar to save for later and shared the rest for my kiddos!!
