Fitlato or Nice Cream

Healthy Ice Cream??

Fitlato is the Fit Girls Guide version of “nice cream” or easy, healthy and dairy free ice cream. There are many varieties- I will share my favorite one here! Peanut butter and banana- aka the world’s greatest combination.

I never used to be a huge sweets person. Dessert wasn’t a big thing at my house growing up and I didn’t crave it… and then I don’t know what happened but now ending the day with dinner just doesn’t cut it for me on most nights. So, I am always searching for new, healthier dessert and treat options. Fit Girls Guide has some great options that don’t require too much work and are delicious. Today, I am going to show you the recipe for the Banana Peanut Butter Fitlato (like gelato… but healthier). You will need to have frozen bananas on hand which I always do because I always buy more bananas than I need.

You will need a food processor or a blender as well. I use my small one when I want to make just a batch for myself and the larger food processor if I am doubling, tripling or quadrupling the recipe.  This recipe makes two 150 calorie servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen banana cut in to slices
  • 1T peanut butter
  • 1T coconut cream
  • 1/2t vanilla bean paste (I don’t have this so I use vanilla extract)- if you do this you will want to use 1/4t extract
  • 60 calories of 80% dark chocolate

Put the frozen banana, vanilla and coconut cream in to the food processor and pulse to chop. Then run the food processor until creamy.

Put in a bowl  and add the peanut butter and chocolate. You can also add these in the food processor but it will be less “chunky”. I keep my PB in the fridge so I find that stirring it in later doesn’t really work- either put PB in the microwave for a few seconds or add it in to the food processor.

I recommend freezing for a few minutes to have it firm up a bit. If you are making it ahead of time and freeze it over night or for a few hours, then make sure to take it out for a few minutes before eating. Basically, you want it to be creamy and thick and not runny or too icy. 

Enjoy! I will be posting more varieties soon!
