Healthy Ice Cream Sandwiches

These Frozen Treats are Calorie-Conscious and Use Frozen Bananas

— September 25, 2015 — Lifestyle
Foodies looking for a calorie-conscious ice cream alternative should test out these banana 'nice cream' sandwiches by Brandi Bidot featuring frozen banana ice cream. These healthy frozen treats offer similar dessert flavors with a lighter and slighly more nutritious recipe.

These ice cream sandwiches begin with a dairy-free version made from frozen bananas blended with salt and vanilla extract to create a thick banana 'nice cream.' The fruity frozen custard is sugar and dairy-free making it an ideal substitute to store-bought versions. The banana ice cream can be sandwiched between two Ritz crackers and dipped into melted dark chocolate. These mini ice cream sandwiches can be stored pre-made in the freezer making for a healthier sweet dessert to grab for when you have a sugar craving.
Trend Themes
1. Calorie-conscious Ice Cream Alternatives - Exploring innovative ways to create healthier frozen treats that offer similar dessert flavors with lighter and more nutritious recipes.
2. Dairy-free Frozen Desserts - Developing dairy-free frozen desserts using ingredients like frozen bananas as a substitute for traditional ice cream.
3. Convenience of Pre-made Healthy Desserts - Creating pre-made healthier dessert options like mini ice cream sandwiches that can be stored in the freezer for quick and guilt-free indulgence.
Industry Implications
1. Food and Beverage - The food and beverage industry can capitalize on the growing demand for calorie-conscious and healthier frozen dessert options.
2. Plant-based and Vegan Food - Companies in the plant-based and vegan food industry can develop innovative dairy-free frozen dessert alternatives using ingredients like frozen bananas.
3. Frozen Dessert Packaging - The frozen dessert packaging industry can adapt to the need for convenient pre-made healthier dessert options by developing packaging solutions that maintain the freshness and quality of the treats.
