Banana Ice Cream Granola Snacks

Updated on November 4, 2012
Cast your vote for Banana Ice Cream Granola Snack

I saw this recipe briefly on TV, and attempted to Google it, but had no luck. It only involved two ingredients, so I figured I would give it a try on my own. Turned out great! The frozen bananas are put into the food processor and whipped into ice cream, which is a delicious one ingredient dessert on it's own- with no fat! The other ingredient is granola or Muesli, which could be any variety you like. Basically it is like a small healthy ice cream sandwich. Make sure the granola is in good contact with the ice cream so it doesn't fall apart when eating. The finished product stays in the freezer, and can be pulled out 5 minutes before eating. Makes a great after school snack, or simple dessert, and is very healthy. Enjoy!

  • about 2 cups granola or muesli


  1. Peel and slice 3 bananas. Spread out in single layer on parchment lined pan and put in freezer until frozen, can be overnight.
