Banana Ice Cream

Saw this on Food Network and couldn’t resist trying out this really easy , healthy recipe and wasn’t disappointed. Here’s my tasty 2-ingredient version:

Ingredients:
2-3 bananas
1 tbsp orange marmalade

Slice the bananas into 1in even slices and lay them on a tray or plate. Refrigerate for an hour. When ready to eat take the frozen banana slices and toss in a food processor. Blending to form a smooth frozen ice cream. I added a table spoon of Cranberry Orange Marmalade and topped with some nuts and cranberries.

The original food network recipe used honey and peanut butter and you can find that here.

Refreshing on a hot summer day!

Enjoy!

Mango Pie or Mango Ice Cream Pie

1 ready to eat graham cracker pie crust

Add the jello to hot water (follow directions on the box). Let sit for 2 minutes. Then mix mango pulp, jello, whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk thoroughly. Pour into the pie crust and refrigerate for 2 hours.

To make the Mango Ice Cream Pie, place it in the freezer for a couple of hours.

For lighter recipe use low-fat condensed milk and lite whipped cream.

Top with a slice of peeled fresh mango or a dollop of whipped cream.

Pistachio delight

Ingredients

1/2 pack of Pistachio powder
1 Heavy Whipped Cream
1 Tin Condensed milk or as needed
1 Cocktail Fruits Pack
1-3 Cups Milk
Marshmallows
Cashews, Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts

In a tray add milk, pistachio powder, condensed milk and mix well without any lumps. Then add whipped cream. This thickens the mixture so you need to add milk. Then add the cocktail fruits (I usually use Apple, Orange, Grapes, Green Pear) and cashews, almonds, walnuts.

To garnish add Marshmallows and pecans on the top and refrigerate it and let it soak for 1 hour.

Yummy!
