You can not possibly tell me this doesn't look like soft serve ice cream..............seriously, doesn't it?
Looks can be deceiving and in this case, it is truly so!
Do you know the BEST part about this?
NO ice cream maker required! Isn't that fabulous!
I'm sure you've seen a few versions of this on Pinterest, but I added something else to it to get that toffee flavor I craved!
Can you guess what has no calories, is naturally sugar-free and has amazing taste using only ¼ teaspoon?
You guessed right if you guessed the new flavor English Toffee by Sweetleaf Stevia!
Stay tuned tomorrow for a SWEET SWEET Giveaway! Are you subscribed so you won't miss it?
- 1 ripe banana, semi-frozen
- ¼ teaspoon [url href="http://www.iherb.com/p/9674?rcode=yaj035" target="_blank"]English Toffee stevia[/url]
- 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter, no sugar added
- optional: chopped walnuts
- If you don't have a banana already peeled and frozen, put one in the freezer for about an hour.
- Using a food processor, place the banana in and let it go until you start seeing that is becoming very smooth, no lumps.
- Add the peanut butter and stevia and continue to process until smooth again.
- Pour it into a serving dish and place it back in the freezer for another 15 minutes.
- That is it! Top with walnuts or even some dairy free sugar free whipped cream!
I've been making various flavors of "banana ice cream" for my kids for years, they really think they are eating ice cream! I always slice the bananas before I freeze them though since it helps out my food processor.
This looks great! But can I replace the banana with something else? They give me migraines. And so many sugar free/ Paleo recipes call for it. Help please!
I doubt you can use anything other than bananas. When frozen and blended, they have the perfect creamy texture that is very similar to ice cream. Sorry!
Just happen to have fresh frozen Maui bananas and since I don't care for stevia, will use Coconut Secret's Low Glycemic Raw Coconut Nectar that I just bought. Great way to avoid the leftover Halloween candy in the house.
I know you said this is diabetic friendly but I know for me 30 carbs for a snack would be to high. I am only supposed to have 15 for snacks and 30-45 for a meal . Looks real good though .
OMG this look amazing!!
My English toffee sweetener just cam in today!!!!
Does the nutritional info include the walnuts? I'm guessing not. Not a huge deal, those can be easily figured in. I have some chilling in the freezer right now. I am using it as my post workout snack. I used my 1 cup handy chopper plus and it worked great! A lot easier clean-up than digging out my blender!

Nope, not for the walnuts. Good idea with the hand chopper!
I tried this but used the frozen bananas, frozen strawberries, cinnamon, vanilla creme stevia and riocotta cheese, it was great. But that adds some dairy to the mix. You could use the peanut butter. It is taxing on my little food processor, so maybe the blender would be better.
Where is the best place to purchase flavored Stevia? Thanks in advance
You can buy it at Whole Foods but it will be more expensive. I get it online through iherb.com , its cheaper and if you use my code you will receive $5 off your first order. YAJ035
Thanks so much for the tip and the code for the $5 off... I cannot wait to make this dessert... Thanks again
Looks awesome but I thought bananas were higher on the glycemic index. Not that its bad but I wonder if another fruit would work too! :))) Banana's range from 47-60 when 100 is highest.
Thanks for this idea!
Yes true they are higher on the glycemic index but with no added sugar in the entire dessert they are a very good option for a diabetic.
Can't wait to try this. Looks really good. I love recipes that use naturally sweet fruit too.

I need to get some English Toffee Stevia right away--this ice cream looks amazing!
This seems impossible to think it has no milk. It looks just like ice cream. I could eat a bowl of toffee ice cream right now. YUM!!!!

I am so amazed by the simplicity of this recipe. I'm sure it's waaay over the top..can't wait to try it myself very soon. I should be receiving some chocolate raspberry stevia in the mail soon and this will be a GO when I do. *-* Thanks for sharing -
Yes I mailed the chocolate raspberry out on Wednesday so you should be getting it today or tomorrow! The "ice Cream" is fantastic!
This looks sooo good! I can't wait to try it! Is the toffee flavor brand new? I haven't seen it in stores. Although since I live almost 100 miles from the nearest store that even stocks stevia, I haven't exactly been scouring the shelves lately! I have recently stocked up on powdered sweetleaf stevia, mostly due to discovering your site. I love it!
Thank you! yes, it is new and you can order through the link on the post. I haven't seen it yet at my Whole foods market either but you can get it online and it is so good!
I wonder if I could make this in my Yonanas maker?? I don't have a Food processor.
I'm sorry I don't really know what that is, but as long as its like a blender it should work fine.
I have a blender so I could use that instead of the food processor? The Yonanas maker was a Christmas gift - I haven't used it yet. You use frozen bananas and it makes them into a custard. My husband thought I would like it since I always enjoy this place down at our shore called "The Bashful Banana" which serves "Banana" ice-cream (with additions of other frozen fruit and an all fruit fudge sauce that I would love to have the recipe for)
This looks great i have to be careful with sugar amount. What can i use instead of toffee since i can't have soy otherwise i'd def. try it soon !
The stevia is not made of soy so you should be able to have it. It is a naturally sugar free plant and the leaves are boiled down to produce the liquid. You could certainly leave any sweetener out of the recipe all together as the banana is sweet enough really.
