This ICE CREAM is BAH.NA.NAS.
After seeing an utterly ridiculous infomercial for a product that blends bananas into ice cream called Yonanas (Google it – it’s pathetically hilarious), I was quite flustered. My blender can do the same thing. So WHY have I not tried this yet?!
And I admit, I have been sucked into the infomercial world before. The Magic Bullet totally enticed me (and… don’t tell anyone…but if the full-length infomercial is on tv, I still watch it) and I bought one, but it died within a year. So what did I do? Bought another one! That one died too. Lesson learned.
But oddly enough, I find a strange comfort in watching infomercials late at night if I can’t sleep & they’re the only thing on TV. Am I alone in this? Or do you watch them, without any intention of buying the product?
So I made Dark Chocolate Banana ice cream today. Holyyyyyy Sheets-N-Things.
It was just one of those times when you think, “Where have you been all my life?”
This is so delicious, so good for you, so unprocessed, so sugar free (save for the dark chocolate chips but c’mon). And this is a pretty good size portion!
All I did was blend a frozen banana (it was huge) with 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I added two teaspoons of cacao powder and a pinch of xanthan gum.
I topped it with Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate chips then dug in & fell in love. There are so many ‘ice cream’ flavours floating in my head. Next up is mint chocolate. Then chocolate almond. I’m salivating. Not lady like.
So the only running I did today was to & from my car & Walmart. However, I did buy a speed jumping rope for only $6 and used that for a good amount of time today and it made me realize two things. 1) I’m not that great at jumping rope and 2) jumping rope is a cardio fest! It burns a ton of calories and it gets hard as hell. This is great for when I don’t feel like leaving the house to workout.
So before I leave you all to make dinner (nothing special, just a turkey burger), I’ll present to you my adorable dogs who make my home all their own. The living room contains 2 love seats & 2 chairs, and they rotate sleeping on all of them. They’re cute, so it’s ok. But this was too adorable for words:
