someone try this false ice cream recipe with me

Concerned about my spiralling obesity, the wife has been downloading healthy treats to try out.

She tried this simple recipe the other day, and I want to get some other opinions on it.

Here are the ingredients-

-3 frozen chopped bananas that you let ripen until they get brown spots first, then chopped and put in freezer
-average spoonful of almond butter or peanut butter
-2 spoonfuls of hersheys unsweetened cocoa

blend it till its smooth, and put in freezer.


The result is something that is remarkably close to chocolate ice cream in both taste and tactile feel. When she made it the other day, instead of almond butter, she used peanut butter, but the result seems similar. We also immediately ate it, and it was like soft serve.

Its the strangest thing to eat, it first tastes like bananas, but almost immediately the flavor changes to as if you ate chocolate ice cream, and its like the banana was always chocolate. I want to get some second opinions. You do not taste the peanut butter or almond butter at all.

This has opened a whole new activity with the wife of making banana based false ice creams.

I'm on. Will go buy bananas in the next few days.

How "brown" do they have to get?

I'll bet that would be great if you mixed in some heavy whipping cream.

No but hey, I might try it.

If you are serious about losing weight get a blood glucose tester like a diabetic uses and test before and after you eat. Quit eating things that raise your glucose significantly. Weight gain requires glucose and insulin. Stop the cycle.

Try to fast for 16 hours a day. Keep your blood sugar stable the eight hours that you eat. You will lose weight.

Avoid processed food, sweeteners, flour, and vegetable oil.

Frozen blueberries and cream in the blender make great ice cream. Really great.

Pouring cream into a blender does not seem like a surefire way to make a diet food.

Is the relevance paradox getting me again?

I used to make fruit smoothies with frozen bananas and strawberries along with a bit of greek yogurt. Very very good, might want to give it a try.

I ate some greek yogurt once. It made my breath smell like cat vomit. YMMV.

This time it is the propaganda machine, misinformation and disinformation. Atkin's diet might actually allow such a mixture, not sure.

I didn't say it was diet food, just that it was good.

That is one of the drawbacks, but I hear it is good if you have any skin conditions.

No reason to make this complicated. If you want to lose weight, eat fewer calories than you burn. If you want to lose weight while maintaining muscle mass, keep your caloric intake above your basal metabolic rate (easily rough estimated by various online calculators) and do weight training while keeping your protein intake up. Not really hard. Even I do it twice a year before weigh ins.

An 8 ounce banana has 200 calories and 51 grams of carbohydrate. An equivalent serving of vanilla ice cream has 38 g of carbs, slightly more calories and a buttload more protein. Lower fat, but that difference will be offset by whatever fat is added by the nut butter, not inconsequential.
Given that excess carbs and high glycemic index of ingredients are thought to be the prime contributors to abdominal fat deposition, NOT necessarily dietary fat, I'd bet the difference between this recipe and a bowl of real ice cream is negligible.

My favorite diet advice:
Eat real food, not too much, mostly plants - Michael Pollan.
