Nothing beats a frozen dessert on a hot summer day. However, finding an option that is not highly processed or made from dairy (which I can’t eat) and free of added sugars and unhealthy fats is easier said than done. Enter the banana, which is probably the best fruit to freeze and blend that I have ever come across. I started making this as an ice cream substitute for myself years ago. It is easy to prepare, tasty, and the best part is, most people love it.
