A closer look at what’s inside:
Believe it or not, the texture of a frozen banana is very similar to ice cream. Bananas make up the base of this dairy-free ice cream adding natural sweetness, potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.
I love lemon and sour things! You likely know that lemon is loaded with vitamin C — with 1 fruit providing over 50% of your daily-recommended intake.
Ginger contains many beneficial compounds that exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and anti-tumor properties. One of which is gingerol, a powerful substance that has been used medicinally for centuries. Studies have suggested that ginger can be effective in preventing and treating chronic disease.
Dairy-Free Milk or Yogurt
Use your favorite dairy-free milk or yogurt in this recipe. I opt to use plain and unsweetened yogurt to let the other flavors stand out. Make sure you check the sugar content of your yogurt before purchasing — some varieties are packed with added sugars.
