Banana 'Ice Cream' with Oreos

Yesterday I posted this pic -
and asked if anyone could guess what it is.  

On Facebook I had a guess of "maybe a smoothie of some sort? With blueberries and chocolate??"

Excellent guess, but it was actually

Yes, once again, I have taken something perfectly healthy and uhh....de-healthified it? 
oops. my bad.

My kids wanted a treat, and I had frozen bananas on the brain since having an email conversation with another blogger who is preggars, and 'enjoying' all the crazy food obsessions and repulsions that come along with pregnancy. And yes, that conversation included the healthy banana.

For whatever reason, I had Oreos in my house.  Which is such a NO.NO.  Since I have absolutely zero will power.  Anyways, I decided I would take the bananas we had in the freezer, blend them up and toss in a few Oreos. 

My kids thought it was a delicious, decadent treat!  

I used 3 frozen bananas
4 or 6 Oreos (sorry, can't remember!)
1/2 T. cocoa (mainly for color - my kids eat anything chocolate)

and had enough to fill 3 ice cream cones, plus some leftover!

**Don't throw away those over ripe bananas, just peel and stick in the freezer in a freezer bag.  Then you can enjoy 'ice cream' whenever the mood strikes.  Leave out the Oreos, and it can be completely guilt free!

  3. This looks sooo good! A few years ago, I tried blending up some frozen bananas and adding dark chocolate chips per a suggestion out of one of Bob Green's books. It was not as good as I expected. I just know that adding cocoa and Oreos would make all the difference in the world. Yum!

  4. I was way off - I totally thought it was some kind of cake batter. Ice cream looks even better though.

  5. This is a fun idea. I can't resist Oreos if they're in the house either.

  6. The way I see it is this. It's healthiER than if it were just regular oreo ice cream. Therefore...it's healthy!
