I finally got around to trying these – soooo good! They are very tasty! I was afraid that these would taste very banana flavored but to my surprise they don’t. I also made them with raisins instead of chips and also added coconut to the above recipe. I think they would also taste good by substituting the chips with crushed walnuts. I will have to try that one next time.
I have had this recipe for some time and sorta resisted trying them. I tried them last night and let me tell you they were very very good! They had a mild chewiness – I did not add rains to half of this batch and both were very good! You would think since these are made with banana that it would taste like banana – but it only carried a minor flavor of banana. You can make them with whole milk instead of almond milk and you can cut the cinnamon in half or eliminate it all together. I added 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips to half this recipe and they came out perfect. I imagine you could substitute all or part of the raisins with chopped nut or dried cranberries. I highly recommend this recipe!
~ 1 cup frozen strawberry yogurt/1 cup banana flavored yogurt
~1/2 cup Nutella
~I cup frozen strawberries
~1 cup nuts (I have tried 1 cup mixed, 1 cup almonds and 1 cup peanuts to 2 bananas – and these were chilled)
Of course this was not all at once. So far everything was really good and I really liked it. It was a very good for you snack that I did not have to feel like I was being bad while eating it. All ingredients were frozen or chilled to keep the “ice cream” cold. For the nuts I added nuts from the baking section – these are what you eat when you are eating healthy because they are unsalted – the type made to put into cookies and desserts and not the ones you buy they are sugared or salted because they are really unhealthy for you.
What type of ingredients do you think you would want to add to this?
I have always loved bananas and eat them regularly. My favorite has always been to slice them and place into a bowl, add orange juice to cover and add a little sugar. Tastes good and gives the body a boost off goodness to start the day off with. These good benefits for bananas just makes eating them that much sweeter. Breakfast is often overlooked and anyone can grab one of these and eat it on the way to work or school. What I like also about bananas is that they are fairly cheap and you can buy them at the beginning of your week with some ready to eat and some still green so you have enough to make your full week.
