I’ve been playing around with the paleo movement lately, loving a lot of the health and body benefits I’ve been noticing. From a flatter tummy to fewer food cravings, cutting out grains has proven a really remarkable experiment for my diet. When I mention Paleo to friends, there is often a “Gasp! isn’t it boring?! What do you eat?!” and I’m delighted to share with them the secret: that eating Paleo is far from boring, and actually quite satisfying. Even when it comes to dessert! Sure, I may not be diving into a plate of white cake, but homemade ice cream (no sugar! no dairy!) is surprisingly simple to make, and I could eat it all day. (Actually, you CAN eat it all day…even for breakfast…because it’s that good for you!)
Looking for an easy, beautiful, and totally healthy dessert? Then you’ve gotta try this 3-ingredient Paleo Cherry-Banana-Almond Ice Cream!
Cherry Banana Almond Ice Cream
- 4 very ripe bananas, peeled and thoroughly frozen
- 1 cup frozen organic bing cherries
- 2 tablespoons almond butter
- seeds of 1 vanilla bean
Place all ingredients into an industrial-strength blender (like a Vitamix) and blend on low, then high, until ice cream forms. Serve immediately or transfer to a freezer-safe dish and freeze until ready to use.
