Skinny Ice Cream Sundae

I was given a free one-month subscription to try the new Simple Start plan and write about my experience.  Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative are my own.

Skinny Ice Cream Sundae

Last week, if you follow me on Facebook and Twitter you know that I began my Weight Watchers membership. It’s only been one week using the Simple Start Program and I actually been having a great time using their super cool iPhone app. It takes all the guess work out of what to eat, making meal planning super simple. It even adds up the points for you, which means no need to waste time measuring or weighing out every little piece of crumb you eat.

This week’s trip to the grocery store was a breeze with my new Weight Watchers app. I had no clue that fruits and veggies were ZERO points. Yay! As you can imagine my cart was filled with fruits and veggies, especially bananas which are my favorite!

And speaking of bananas, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite healthier desserts to satisfy my late night sweet tooth. Instead of indulging in a delicious Twix Cupcake or Cake Batter Funfetti Bars, I used  bananas to make an ice cream sundae. That’s right, an ice cream sundae!

With fruits and veggies being ZERO points, I made an ice cream sundae using frozen bananas, yes BANANAS! The ones that are sitting on your counter with all those brown spots that your about to throw away. Well those banana make the BEST fat-free, gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, ice cream sundae!

Today’s recipe is simple all you need is over-ripe bananas, peel them and put them in the freezer until frozen, then using a food processor, process the frozen bananas until smooth and creamy. No sugar or cream added. Just healthy frozen, soft serve banana ice cream. Delicious!

Super easy and fun to make, and the possible toppings are endless  but my favorite so far is a couple of chopped walnuts, fresh berries and it’s wouldn’t be a sundae without SPRINKLES!

I just started the Weight Watchers Simple Start program, but am already SO excited about making these simple changes for a healthier and happier me. I love that I can still enjoy the things I love to eat…like ice cream sundaes but with a healthier twist!

  1. I dont have a food processor. Will a blender work for this?

  2. To make chocolate-banana ice cream just sprinkle your frozen banana pieces with unsweetened cocoa powder before blending.  (Let sit for a few minutes.)  OR….add a tablespoon of no calorie chocolate syrup (I use Walden Farms).  You can also add frozen strawberries to the bananas — voila, another  flavor.  Enjoy!!
