If ice cream is hard for your stomach to handle, try "nice cream" instead! Blend frozen bananas with Fairlife milk for a low-sugar sweet treat. Fairlife milk is made from cows, yet the lactase enzyme is added to their blend making it a good option for those with lactose intolerance.

All you need:

  • 4 cups frozen sliced bananas (3-4 large bananas)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Fairlife 1% milk
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

All you do:

  • Place frozen banana slices, peanut butter, and 1/2 cup milk into a blender. Blend until a smooth consistency has formed. If things are too thick, add a little bit more milk. 
  • Add in mini chocolate chips and pulse to combine. 
  • Option to eat immediately for a “soft-serve-like” consistency or to transfer into a parchment-lined bread pan to freeze for a more “ice cream-like” consistency. Freeze for about 2 hours. If you freeze for longer, it will become solid and hard to scoop, so you will need to thaw.
  • Serve with more chocolate chips and a drizzle of peanut butter.
