  2. Improves digestion: in addition to providing energy, the fiber in bananas regulates bowel movements, preventing stomach discomfort.
  3. Supports heart health: bananas have potassium and magnesium, two minerals essential for heart health and blood pressure control.
  4. Antioxidant: bananas are high in dopamine and catechins, antioxidants that help lower your risk for some diseases.

Banana Nice Cream

(2 Servings)

Ingredients:

2 medium bananas

½ cup Raspberries, Blueberries, or strawberries

1 teaspoon honey

3 Tablespoons almond, oat, or coconut milk

Directions:

  1. Slice the bananas and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet along with the raspberries. Place in the freezer for at least 2 to 3 hours, or overnight.
  2. Remove the frozen banana slices from the freezer and place them in a blender or food processor. Add the honey and milk and process on high speed for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the nice cream is smooth (you may need to scrape down the sides).
  3. Serve and enjoy! This is best eaten immediately but can be frozen for eating later, with a much stiffer texture.
