FROZEN

 

I have told you time and time again how much love I have for Pinterest. It is amazing, the new things you discover up there or the new ideas you get are so worth the hour I spend there daily. For those of you who are still too backward and don’t know what Pinterest is where on earth do you live???? Pinterest is a social networking site where you share photos (pin) of things you find interesting (hence pinterest). It can be anything food, drinks, cats, cars, motor bikes, movies, your dream house, wedding ideas, party ideas, ANYTHING!! You save this in your own folders and you can later refer back to them. It’s like an online idea diary. I LOVE IT.
So I found this recipe on there and I thought that it sounded so impossible. I mean how do you blend frozen bananas and come out with a creamy substance? Doesn’t that defy logic? Shouldn’t you get a juice or flacked/shaved ice particles?? Turns out my science is wrong. Once the frozen bananas have been blended for long enough what you end up with is a creamy frozen dessert. Totally SUGAR FREE!!! How cool is that??? I loved this dessert not only coz I like bananas but mainly because it’s healthy. So on a night when you really want some ice cream but you are trying to watch your calorie intake, make this and your craving will be dealt with and your waist and hips will thank you later.
