When summer delivers ice cream weather, we turn to this brilliant three-ingredient recipe: chocolate banana nice cream — naturally vegan and low-fat. Just cut up the bananas, freeze and swirl with your favorite flavors.
We have some real chocoholics under our roof, but you could use anything—frozen strawberries, blueberries or a little vanilla extract. Bonus — this nice cream is nut-free, soy-free, and gluten-free too!
