I normally don't post about food or recipes, I'm not a food blogger. But I am a food eater. And if you know me, you know that I have been a Weight Watchers member forever for about 3 years. So everything I eat costs points. And I'm always looking for a bargain.
Today I was craving ice cream, I had a couple teenyweeny Skinny Cow ice cream cups. I checked the points on them…4. FOUR POINTS for like, two tablespoons ice cream. Bargain? Nope.
So I remembered I had this banana that I popped in the freezer because it was almost overripe. Sometimes I freeze them for smoothies. And I remembered that I had seen something amongst my favorite foodie bloggers about making ice cream out of a frozen banana. I believe I saw it here. So I pulled out my mini food processor, popped in the banana and let it whip. It took a while, few minutes, and I ended up adding a couple of tablespoons of half and half, to loosen it up a bit. But when it was done?
Heaven. For only one point.
It made about 3/4 a cup. I did add a drizzle of caramel to top it off, so really two points for the whole deal. And again, since I am not a food blogger, I have no pictures to show you. Plus I ate it so fast my camera never had a chance.
Yummy. Hit the spot. Total bargain.
Thank you, Roni.
That is my public service announcement for the day.
