I don’t necessarily like the phrase “guilt-free” when applied to these recipes. She uses that phrase because the “ice cream” is made from frozen bananas and is sometimes referred to as “nice cream”. She says “guilt free” because there isn’t the fat and sugar typical of regular ice cream. There is a bit of added fat and sugar in a few of theses recipes, but not a lot.
The reason I don’t like the term “guilt free” is it leads a person to believe they can eat unlimited amounts, which isn’t true. Remember, bananas, especially ripe bananas contain a lot of sugar. Also, these recipe have added ingredients which contain fat or sugar or both. So, there is still a lot of sugar in “nice cream”. Another thing to remember, is that eating one banana during the day is fine, but it takes a few to make a bowl of “nice cream’. Just something to keep in mind.
With that said, it’s still a wonderful way to enjoy a sweet treat without a lot of extra calories and the feeling you’ve “cheated” on your diet. In order to stay on a diet, it’s important to find ways to treat yourself on occasion, without going overboard.
