-By Hertha J. Woodruff, A.M.L.S., M.A.
Here is a quick recipe for preparing banana ice cream without the fat, sugar, and additives. It is a refreshing treat for a hot summer day or for Indian summer.
Never throw away another very ripe banana! Just peel, place in a freezer bag, and freeze. Use frozen bananas in smoothies or for the following banana ice cream recipe.
Bananas are high in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, a good source of potassium, and is low in sodium. Bananas contain a digestible source of fiber. One banana is 105 calories. (From: Prevention Magazine’s Complete Nutrition Reference Handbook by Mark Bricklin)
