Can’t drop the ice cream addiction? For a sweet treat, whip up a frozen banana in the blender. Presto: healthy banana “gelato.”   
Daily Dose
If ice cream is your go-to treat when you’re craving something sweet, try this guilt-free version instead: frozen blended bananas. Whipping frozen bananas in a blender turns them into a thick, rich, custardy treat. Here’s how: Peel and slice a couple of ripened bananas. Place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer and freeze for two hours. Blend the fruit in a food processor or blender, scraping the mixture off the sides when it sticks, until it has a smooth, custardy consistency. Serve immediately. Experiment with different flavors by adding in peanut butter, hazelnut butter or fresh berries. You’ll be amazed by just how good something so simple can be. Eat it plain or spread over graham crackers for an open-faced ice cream sandwich.
