A healthy homemade blender ice cream made using bananas, peanut butter, pure vanilla and unsweetened almond milk. This is the perfect healthy treat for all ages, including toddlers.
Ice cream!! I mean who doesn’t like ice cream? From its creamy texture and sweet taste, there is so much to love. However, it also comes with a lot of added sugar. This is where homemade blender ice cream came to life.
I love to give Everly treats. I like to keep them healthy most of the time, and of course, enjoy some sugar sometimes too! But, not all the time.
