Healthy Oreo Blizzard

oreoblizzard7


This homemade and healthy Oreo blizzard has a much lower sugar content than a real Oreo blizzard plus it can be made vegan.  I promise that the kiddos will love it! 

I decided over the weekend, that I am very “Goldilocks” about banana ice cream.   If you make banana ice cream out of bananas that are overly ripe, it turns out too sweet.    But, if you make banana ice cream out of bananas that are too green, then the banana ice cream really turns out too “banana-ee”.

I need my banana ice cream to turn out just right.  My advice?  stick those bananas in the freezer right when you see a few brown spots starting to appear.  Then the banana ice cream will be perfect.

Anyway, I have had this DIY Oreo blizzard in the back of my mind for a while now.  I just needed to find the day to make Chocolate Covered Katie’s Homemade Oreos.  Oh my gosh you guys, you MUST try these!  I am not going to post the recipe for the Oreos here, visit the link above if you want to make them for this recipe.

If you don’t have time to make homemade Oreos, I guess you can still use the real thing.  But also, I have seen healthier, gluten-free “Oreos” at Whole foods too.

I actually didn’t make the cream filling for these Homemade Oreos. I couldn’t find one of the ingredients at any of the stores in my town, so I just decided that the blizzard would taste fine without the filling.  ( although next time I am home in Chicago, I will pick that ingredient up)

Be sure to make the banana soft serve first.  THEN add the Cookies to blend together.  Otherwise the cookies will get too pulverized.

My husband thought that maybe a spoonful of peanut butter would be a wonderful addition to this dessert.  My kids and husband enjoyed this treat as a snack on Saturday afternoon.  What a great treat it was.  If you’re not sold on banana ice cream yet, then you must try this!

    That sounds amazing. We get these from DQ all the time, but I had no idea I could make one myself.

     
  2. That looks delicious! Anytime you can hack a recipe like an Oreo Blizzard and make it healthy, it’s a winner. Thanks!

  18. We discovered the banana ice cream trick last year and it’s great, but as you say, you have to get it just right. We have also taken to doing a sorbet/smoothie/meringue kind of thing that is good also.

  20. This looks delicious! I love banana milkshakes so I’m sure I’d love this Oreo blizzard.
