Guilt-free banana and Nutella ice cream

Guilt-free banana and Nutella ice creamI recently came across this recipe for an instant chocolate-chip ice cream in Chatelaine and immediately thought it was a great idea for when I need a guilt-free (and healthy) way to squash my sweet tooth.

This recipe literally takes less than five minutes to prepare, and is a great way to use up ripe bananas sitting on your counter.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 3 tbsp. of Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread
  • 1 tbsp. of skimmed milk

Method:

  1. Peel and slice the ripe bananas in half, and freeze until firm.
  2. Once the bananas are firm, remove them from the freezer and add them to a food processor.
  3. Whirl until you get a smooth, soft serve-like consistency, and add the Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread and skimmed milk.
  4. Incorporate using a spatula, making sure you get the sides of the food processor.
  5. Add desired toppings (Rice Chex cereal pictured above), and serve immediately.

Optional: If you’d prefer harder, frozen texture, you may opt to put the mixture in the freezer until the desired consistency is reached.
