When I want a treat, I tend to go for the real thing, not a lower-calorie substitution. But this two-ingredient recipe for Nutella banana “ice cream” is just so nifty and delicious, I just had to share it with you! Basically all you need is a frozen banana, a food processor, and a heaping spoonful of Nutella (or another tasty spread). You can also make this recipe your own by adding coconut, vanilla extract, or other frozen fruits.
One frozen banana (slice into 1/2 inch disks before freezing)
1-2 Tablespoons Nutella hazelnut spread
Place frozen banana in mini food processor. Pulse until it begins to form a creamy paste, then add Nutella and continue pulsing until just blended. Spoon into a “scoop” shape and serve. That’s it!
