Strawberry Banana Ice Cream with 3 ingredients and only 5 minutes!
As we are already reaching warm temps here in the southwest, we are enjoying a VERY Simple Strawberry Banana Ice Cream today. I truly enjoy making healthier treats for my Munchkin. That does not generally include store bought ice cream as she is sometimes sensitive to sugar. If you have kids, you will understand that some days I just do not have the energy to deal with a sugar buzz. LOL
So, I decided to whip up a fabulously flavorful, creamy sweet dessert for her. I used frozen fruit and a tiny bit of sugar. It is AMAZING!!! It took less than 5 minutes, I used my blender AND it is only 3 ingredients!
I have even made this recipe using honey, agave, stevia and maple syrup. The stevia powder or real sugar came out the best, but try it with your favorite sweetener and see what you think.
With love from our kitchen table to yours! XO

Pecan Banana "Ice Cream".
Simple Strawberry Banana Ice Cream - serves 8 (makes approximately 64 ounces)
4 large bananas, frozen
4 cups strawberries, frozen
2 tablespoons sugar (or powdered stevia)
Place strawberries in a bowl or measuring cup, sprinkle with sugar and toss to combine. Place bowl in microwave at 30 second intervals until the strawberries soften slightly and the sugar dissolves in the juice.
Add bananas and strawberry mixture to the blender and blend until they reach the perfect consistency.
When your ice cream stops moving in the blender, you will want to stop and scrape down the pitcher of the blender and stir a few times. About 2-3 minutes total blending time.
Your frozen fruit may separate into tiny frozen chunks before it becomes a fabulous creamy consistency, so be patient.
Serve and enjoy! You can also transfer to a freezer safe container and allow ice cream to firm up in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours.
*NOTE: There are no preservatives in your ice cream, so it will freeze solid. Simply remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving to allow to soften slightly. If freezes and keeps beautifully!
