Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream

It’s perfect weather for ice cream here in Dallas.  So I am busy making new flavors like this Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream.  Or rather, “nice cream.”  I call it nice cream because it’s made with frozen bananas.  That makes it very healthy too!

Now, don’t get scared off by the phrase, healthy ice cream. I promise it’s really delicious!  My 6 year old actually begs for this almost every afternoon in the summer. The best part about this?  You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this! Yay!

I didn’t blend mine super well because I liked the bananas kind of chunky, but you are more than welcome to blend until smooth.  You can also make this with sunflower butter instead of almond butter for a nut free option.

When I go to the store, I always buy two bunches of bananas so I can put one bunch in the freezer.  That way I always have bananas on hand to make this.

I think these cookies are healthy enough for breakfast too.  The quinoa flakes and nut butter add a nice amount of fat and protein, keeping you full for a while.  If you don’t want to use quinoa flakes, you can use quick oats instead.

This recipe is also easy to make nut free by using sunflower butter.  I imagine it should work out just fine.  These healthy cookies literally took 5 minutes to whip together too!
