Regardless of you either loving summer or complaining about the scorching heat, there is one thing we can all agree on during these months: ice cream. If there is anything that brings together a perfect summer day, it is always ice cream. I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy a nice cup of ice cream throughout the summer. However, the calories, fat, and sugar can quickly add up when you indulge in ice cream multiple times throughout the week.
Well guess what? I am here to tell you that you can enjoy your ice cream guilt-free with this simple ice cream made with only 3 ingredients! This ice cream is made with frozen bananas, which is blended to make a creamy base that resembles the texture of ice cream. Keep a batch of sliced bananas in your freezer all summer long for a quick treat when you are craving some ice cream. Although I have made the most basic form of this ice cream with just sliced bananas in the past, I wanted something more, maybe something with a little bit of caramel...
I'm sure you have seen or tried the 2 ingredient banana pancakes made with only eggs and bananas all over the Internet. Although they will never replace my regular pancakes made with flour, I enjoy whipping up a batch for a quick breakfast or as a snack. I wanted to take the pancakes to another level by packing in more nutrition so I added hemp seeds and all-natural peanut butter. The result was a pancake that was not only packed with more nutrients, but also a super easy, flour-free pancake that is fluffier and tastes better than the traditional 2 ingredient pancakes!
Try these pancakes for a post-workout snack or when you are looking for something to get you through to the end of the day.
These pancakes are:
Packed with protein
Healthy fat friendly (Omega 3 & 6)
When I am having these pancakes for breakfast, I add a little drizzle of Maple syrup and a dollop of peanut butter.
