Hi my friends!! I am very happy today because I will share with you a new recipe that I copied from my friend Krystina Kalapothakos and Kouzounas kitchen!!
It’s been a long time since I was searching for a healthy and guilt free ice cream, not only for me but for my daughter as well. She doesn’t appreciate fruits so I have to camouflage them every now and then! Ice cream is a very nice idea. I experimented with some sorbe recipes but if you don’t have the intention to kill someone with that thing then there is no good to it. Don’t get me wrong they are delicious and healthy but in the freezer sorbe transforms into a solid rock impossible to drill! Sorbe must be made the time you wish to consume it! Plus my daughter doesn’t like it so, farewell!!
Then Krystina came with her guilt free ice cream and I thought that if she likes it then it must be legit!! And it is!! I don’t know if you hate or love bananas but the thing is that it’s not so banananish to taste. Plus the ripe the bananas are the less banana you’ll taste. With peanut butter and coconut flakes in, you sighn up for a very exotic-summery-flavored trip!
So I made it and served it to my little one. Just a note, my daughter is very miserable with fruits-textures-colors-new tastes! She tried it once and gave it back to me. I ate it and she was staring. Then she asked me for some more. That’s it, every afternoon she begs me for ice cream and I am more than happy to give it to her! Plus I love it! I absolutely love it!
So I make about 1-2 kilos of this ice cream and store it in the freezer. If I want some of it I simply let it stand in room temperature for about 10 minutes and serve!
So thank you Kouzounas Kitchen for this recipe! You saved me!!

See you my friends! Filia!
