5 Minute Ice Cream

Nope, I’m not kidding.  This takes 5 minutes.  What’s better than ice cream in 5 minutes? Thaaaat’s right….nothing.  For those asking for healthier dessert options, I am here for you.

This isn’t just a great dessert because it takes so little time, it is also a great dessert because there are only 4 ingredients.

Now listen, I am going to be honest with you.  This is no Ben and Jerrys, but if you’re looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth, this is the perfect thing.  And!  The entire pan is only 437 calories!

You’ll need 3 bananas to start off with.  Now these do need to be sliced and frozen.  Since I normally have frozen fruit in the freezer, these were readily available.  Along with the bananas, you need to have 1/2-3/4 cups of frozen strawberries (or any type of fruit you’d like to use along with the banana).

Add your frozen fruit into a blender along with 1/2 cup milk (any kind of milk should work, I just used 1%) and a teaspoon of vanilla.  Blend everything together and you should have something like this:

Mine seemed to be a tad bit thick, so I did end up adding some more milk to allow it to blend easier (hence the 1/2-3/4 cup of milk I stated above).  It only takes a couple minutes to blend everything together, maybe 2-3 minutes, and you should get a nice smooth consistency.

From here, you just need to pour the mixture into a pan and pop it in the freezer until frozen.

That’s it, you’re done!
