Sugar-Free Banana “Ice Cream”: {Kids Cook} Monday Meal

Sugar Free Banana "Ice Cream"

Did you know that there is a delicious, creamy, luscious, dessert that isn’t packed with sugar? Sugar-Free Banana “Ice Cream” has no added sugar and is completely delectable. As if bananas aren’t tasty enough on their own, the simple act of freezing them ramps up their sweetness to a whole new level. Blend those frozen bananas with a little milk or unsweetened coconut water and you get a deliciously creamy frozen banana treat that’s full of flavor without any added sugar. If you’re taking the Fed Up Challenge but still want to enjoy a sweet treat, this luscious delight stays within the parameters of the challenge. Dessert perfection!

With some support, your teeny tiny sous chef can help you by:

1. Chopping the bananas before freezing them.

2. Placing ingredients into the food processor or blender.

3. Pushing buttons on appliances.

Eliana helped chop the raw bananas. A lefty (me) teaching a righty (Eliana) how to cut was interesting.

Eliana helped chop the raw bananas. A lefty (me) teaching a righty (Eliana) how to cut was pretty interesting. But we figured it out.

But she got the hang of it. We'll fix that index finger later.

My teeny tiny sous chef got the hang of it. We’ll fix that index finger later.  We froze the banana chunks for an hour and proceeded with the recipe.

 

In a blender, blend the frozen bananas and milk or coconut water.

*Making this ice cream is also a great way to use up the random bits of leftover banana Eliana doesn’t eat. I slice off the part that was eaten, wrap it in plastic wrap and stick it in the freezer.
