Banana mint chip ice-cream! (clean eats/vegan)

March 19, 2014

Today we’re going to talk bananas. Not only are bananas amazing in baking as egg substitutes and natural sweeteners they’re super good for you too. Bananas have high levels of tryptophan in them which basically means they tell your brain to tell you to be happy. Haven’t you ever wondered why bananas are smile shaped? They also keep your heart happy because they help lower blood pressure and regulate blood sugar levels. Yay. Speaking of heart health, eating a banana before a work out gives you a quick energy boost and having one after helps restore all the potassium you lose during a workout. ┬áSo even if you’re not a fan of banana, I hope my little blurb on their goodness entice you to at least give this recipe a go! I mean it IS ice cream after all!

Clean. Simple. Ingredients.
