Ice cream is synonymous with summer but the sugar crash and, for some of us, dairy bloat, take away the fun.

Here are five of our favorite healthy super easy nice cream recipes, sure to please any palate.

2. Mango, Strawberry & Banana from Courtney’s Sweets

This tropical delight is a perfect cool-down on a hot day. Bananas are full of electrolytes—calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium—which are vital to nerve and muscle function and lost when you sweat. It’s all fruit, which means plenty of sugar, so watch your intake.
