This frozen treat is both delicious and nutritious!

Peel and slice a banana into pieces, then place in a glass container and freeze.

When you are ready for a cool treat, put the frozen pieces into a blender (I use a small 2-cup size), and process on high until smooth.

Place the ice cream into a serving bowl, top with chopped nuts, and sprinkle with cinnamon!

Creamy and delicious!

Bananas provide potassium, magnesium, and fiber.

The nuts contain protein, healthy fats, and fiber, which help to stabilize blood sugar and keep you full longer.

Cinnamon is a source of manganese (helps regulate blood sugar), calcium, iron, and vitamin K.

So, go cool off and satisfy your sweet tooth with some banana ice cream!
