The $10 Food Day: Banana Nutella “Ice Cream” Recipe

Banana Nutella "ice cream" recipe - a healthy dessert! Repin to save.

This banana-Nutella “ice cream” recipe is awesome for several reasons. One, it tastes great. Two, it’s quite healthy. Three, it only has two ingredients: Nutella and bananas. And fewer ingredients means less money, which is why this recipe is a part of my second $10 Food Day series.

I should mention that this isn’t really an ice cream recipe, hence the quotes around “ice cream”. There is no actual cream in it. But cream will be the last thing on your mind when you take a bite of this deliciousness.

I’m all about healthy dessert recipes, especially ones that don’t taste like they’re healthy, per se. If you feel the same way, you should check out my Pinterest board devoted to healthy desserts:

    I have seen this recipe floating around Pinterest too. I wondered how it would work. I will have to try this! And since it’s healthy, you can eat even more, right?!

    Well, this is a winner! I always buy more bananas than we need so I can use them in smoothies and waffles. This is another great reason to buy even more bananas!
