Ice cream. We love it! Who doesn’t? There’s something soooo comforting and indulgent about a bowl of frozen deliciousness.
But if you’re a New Years resolution setter, this sweet treat has probably been ixnayed from your list of good for you foods.
Beyond the caloric content, dairy-based ice cream is also not your #1 choice for ethical, conscious eating. Dairy cows are some of the most mistreated animals… we won’t get into that here but just Google “dairy cows”. It won’t be the most uplifting read of the day, but it’s important to understand where the food you consume comes from, and the process.
But back to ice cream. We were inspired by the recipe by Pinch of Yum to make some of our own dairy-free, sugar-free and guilt free ice cream. The secret ingredient here are bananas.
