I know Valentines Day has passed but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy some chocolate in your life. I seem to have a sweet tooth all year long so I’m always looking for new ways to make eating dessert guilt free and healthy! Since trying to eat a dairy free diet, I’ve been purchasing almond and coconut milk ice-cream options at the grocery store. Although I love that you can now buy these options, I do find they can contain a lot of sugar and are not always budget friendly. While living in Australia I found it extremely hard to find dairy free alternatives and if I did they were very pricey! I’m talking roughly 16 AUD dollars for a small Haagen Dazs size tub! Crazy I know… So what did I do? I made a healthier, budget friendly low calorie ice cream bite to satisfy my sweet tooth without the guilt. I never like to deprive myself when it comes to food, so if I can make or find a healthier option you bet I’m going to try it!
So here it is, my delicious dairy free banana ice cream bites…
The best part is you can add any filling or topping you like. If you wanted you could fill them with strawberry jam, peanut butter ( personal fav), and top them with goji berries, cranberries, or crushed pistachios!
Before: Naked banana peices
And with a little almond butter icing. Next time I’m going to try peanut butter for more of a kick.
Enjoy these banana ice cream bites with a nice BIG mug of your favourite tea. My current favourite tea lately has been Yogi’s Chai Rooibos 🙂 Comment below what yours has been!
