Andy has quite the sweet tooth. I’m not ratting him out or anything, anyone who knows him knows he’s a sucker for candy bars, Sweet Tarts, and Pepsi. Oh, don’t get me started on the Pepsi. I’ve tried having him drink Seltzer water, but it’s not the bubbles he likes, it’s the sweetness.
So when we started on The Whole 30 program a while back, we learned that sugar was not an option. It’s right in the rules, no food with sugar. I thought Andy was going to break down, but he surprised me. He said he was ready for the challenge. And yes, I know The Whole 30 does not allow dessert-like foods. We didn’t eat this “ice cream” while on The Whole 30 program, this was part of our Paleo experiment after all was said and done. And I really liked this experiment.
Turns out to make Paleo-approved ice cream, all you need are frozen bananas and almond butter. (We couldn’t have the dairy or peanut butter due to the rules.)
Two Ingredient Paleo Ice Cream
2 bananas, peeled
1/4 cup of almond butter
The night before you want to make the “ice cream,” peel and quarter two bananas. Place them in the freezer in a plastic bag. Let freeze overnight.
When bananas are completely frozen, place them in a blender or food processor. Pulsate until bananas have become a smooth mixture. Add in almond butter and blend just until combined.
If mixture is too soft, put in freezer for a half hour to firm. Serve and enjoy.
