2 Ingredient Ice Cream – 1 WW Point
With trying to lose weight and become a healthier version of me, I have had to come up with some alternate food choices. I wouldn’t say that I am terrible about snacking really late at night. On most days I can check out of the kitchen at a reasonable hour (7pm or earlier), and not check back in until morning. There are those occasions though, where I will be laying in bed working on my laptop and watching a show, and I get a fierce hankering for something sweet! Those urges come and go for me.
Right after starting the #iheartOmron Fitness Challenge, I got that hankering something fierce. With the pressure of trying to be good for myself, the scale, the gals in the challenge, etc. etc., what’s a girl with a sweet tooth supposed to do?
I recalled sharing an easy ice cream recipe from My Pinterest Addiction, a couple of weeks ago, using frozen bananas. The recipe was inspired by Recipe by Photo, but I twisted it into something different. The time came where I was desperate enough for something sweet and creamy, and I bit the bullet. Here goes….
Take 2 bananas (I like mine when they are just starting to develop a small brown spots on the peel), and slice them up about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. You won’t want them too ripe or too green.
Stick the bananas in a bag, or on a plate, and place them in the freezer for about 2 hours. Remove the bananas from the freezer and put them in a food processor or blender. Pulverize the bananas, while scraping down the sides every so often. You will want the bananas to get nice and creamy, but keep some of their firmness from being frozen.
Add 1/2 Tbs of Nutella (or Peanut Butter) to the bananas, and mix.
Voila – you’ve got a bowl of Banana and Nutella ice cream that account for just 1 Weight Watchers Points Plus Value! This is a dessert you can feel good about! I was worried that 1/2 Tbs of Nutella wouldn’t be enough to flavor the ice cream much, but it totally worked for me. I personally can’t eat a lot of ice cream because I have some teeth sensitivities, so a bowl like this was just right, and it DEFINITELY did the trick for getting rid of my sweet tooth!
(I apologize I don’t have process pictures – I was too eager to eat my treat after a couple of days of strict dieting!)
