How to have your dessert and eat it too
If you are into eating clean but you have a sweet tooth, then this recommendation is especially for you.
Some time last year, the Internet was swept away with the famous “one ingredient ice cream”, a cheater’s ice cream made with only one magical ingredient ~ bananas. All you had to do is freeze bananas and blend it, and the result was your favourite frozen treat without all the calories.
It’s low in calories and processed sugar, dairy free, and also highly nutritious. The perfect way to satisfy those ice cream cravings.
Earlier this week, I visited Kite Beach in Jumeirah. I was craving something sweet, so I decided to give Wanna Banana a shot ~ a dessert place that makes this one ingredient ice cream and also offers a variety of healthy toppings to go with it.
These treats come in 2 types: the bite and the ice. Bite is a cup of banana coins, and the ice is the deal that we’re looking for ~ the ice cream impersonator. I selected the ice of course, which comes with one free topping: either date syrup or chocolate sauce.
Taste wise, it’s actually better than I expected. The texture is quite like ice cream, but you can taste the bananas. So if you don’t like bananas, then you won’t go bananas over this.
I also loved the atmosphere at Wanna Banana. It’s a tiny kiosk located around several other small cafes and ice cream parlors just by the beach. So if you’re in the mood for some fresh air or a stroll at the beach whilst you enjoy a sweet treat, then this is definitely the place to go to.
Wanna Banana is located at the Kite Beach in Umm Suqeim.
