Brain Freezing Breakfast Party

nana_icecream_7_web

Remember that time that you were a little kid and you asked your mom if you could have ice cream for breakfast and her answer was always “NO.” Afterwards she even gives you a lecture why you need a proper breakfast. Well, I wasn’t one of those kiddies but I can imagine that some you readers might have been. (or is this something that only happens in movies?)
Regardless, moms are always right, breakfast is the most important part of the day. Starting with a healthy balanced breakfast will increase the metabolic rate and gives your body a kick-start. Skipping the breakfast will make your body slow down in processing your next meal, as it tries to hold onto those nutrients. It also means that you will consume more food throughouth the day to keep your hunger down. This may result in you grabbing high calorie, and high sugar foods.

Anyway, a few days ago I woke up and was a hungry monster, like every morning. I jumped out of bed took shower, got dressed, made myself a cup of lemon-ginger tea and dove into the fridge to find something to eat. I ended up with rice milk and leftover frozen bananas. That’s the only thing I could find that was suitable to pass for breakfast. Then I figured that I could turn this into a breakfast ice cream. If my mom knew, she’d call me crazy. It is an easy way to start your day and you can even create this insanely tasty ice cream while you’re sleepwalking. Bananas are a great way to give your body some energy in the morning. Full of potassium and magnesium they maintain a normal blood pressure and the high potassium content supports healthy bones. Furthermore, it helps to ease out constipation and improves digestion due to the high fiber content. They also a help to restore the body when you’ve had workout (I don’t mean the ice cream!). Just don’t go overboard, bananas are a high-glycemic carbohydrates source and you don’t need that much sugar.

PS. You can also make this for dessert of course.

Soft serve banana breakfast ice-cream

Serves 1

These are just a few out of the many combinations you can make. It’s all up to you to make a nice party! Double up the volumes if you make it for a bigger party 😉

Note: Chop up your banana in pieces before you freeze them. It happened to me once; In a rush I just put the whole thing in the freezer (And yes I didn’t even bother to peel it. Call me blond.) and it is way, way harder to chop it up when it is frozen.

1 cup of frozen banana chunks
1/4 cup fresh mango
1/4 cup of frozen berries
1/4 cup rice milk (or almond)

or

1 cup of frozen banana chunks
3 tbs raw cacao powder
1/4 cup rice milk
2 tbs chopped pecan

Put everything in a blender and blend till you have a smooth consistency. Pour it into a cup and top it off with some chia seeds, flax seeds, chopped nuts, coconut flakes, some fresh fruits or whatever you have in the fridge.

Enjoy!
