3 Ingredient Mango Ice Cream {Gluten Free}

Big thanks to my sweet sister, The Veggie Girl, who got these new glass bowls for me {Christmas gift!}.

Who doesn’t love ice-cream? As a child, getting that single scoop of Strawberry from Braum’s was simply heavenly.

However, I did not count calories then – or think about weight gain. Wah. Wah.

As a adults, that guilt-free snack simply becomes quite sinful and maybe a diet sabotager {if you are watching your girlish figure.} Bummer. So you hold off – but it’s painful.

This Mango Ice Cream {though not completely guilt free} is lower in fat and sugar than your favorite childhood ice cream. It contains fresh fruit and will leave you feeling satisfied and not guilt ridden.

You will need: 1 cup of frozen mangos, 4 tbsp. heavy whipping cream {or full fat coconut milk}, 4 tbsp. sweet leaf or stevia sweetener.

First, dump your frozen mangos in the food processor – then pour in your cream. Pulse – for about 4 minutes or so. You want to keep checking the consistency. It needs to look like actual sherbet texture.

When it looks appeasing to you, dump in the sweetener and pulse again. Taste your yummy ice cream. You may want to add more sweetener to meet your taste. It’s up to you.

Enjoy. This is perfect for a little dessert for a small dinner group. You may want to top it off with a little dab of whipped cream. Cheers to the healthier, guilt-free ice cream!

Guiltless, Gluten Free & Low-Fat Ice Cream

HEALTHY ICE CREAMYou scream. I scream. We all scream for ice cream – but the healthy kind of course. This ice cream treat has zero milk in it – and is way low-fat.

I know, almost too good to be true. But, it’s true. So, now you can sit on your couch, in your pajamas, and watch a Lifetime movie with a bowl of ice cream and not feel like a glutton.

This is easy as pie to make. All you will need is: 3 frozen bananas (chopped in pieces), 1 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 cap full of vanilla extract.

Pull out the food processor – and add in those 3 frozen bananas. I would only freeze them for about a day – you really don’t want them too hard.

Blend in these bananas – it will take a while – until you form a paste. [Taste this – it is so good!] Add in your honey, vanilla and cocoa powder – then blend again. Make sure the paste is creamy.

You are done. It was that simple. Then serve in a cute, little bowl. It tastes really good. You will want to make a bowl every night.
