The idea came from a family recipe for fruit cups that was amazing but not healthy at all. So getting my inspiration from paleo banana ice cream, I made a healthy version. Enjoy as a side or dessert!

  • Mix mashed bananas and milk together in a bowl; fold in orange slices. Pour mixture into the prepared muffin cups. Freeze until solid, at least 1 hour. Defrost for about 10 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes:

You can sub in other kinds of fruit for the orange slices. If you have a dairy allergy or are paleo, you can just omit the milk.

If not serving right away, store in an airtight container for as long as you wish.

I made this after lunch and then served it to two grandchildren after their naps. They liked it. Then I served it as dessert for my husband and me after dinner. Considering I have not eaten sweets in 8 weeks I thought it was very refreshing. It's definitely a healthy alternative to sugar laden sweets and snacks and something I don't feel guilty eating. The only problem I see is that the bananas darkened a little. I'm wondering if they will darken even more by tomorrow. Read More

The taste was good but the texture was not. My kids and I didn't like the pieces of orange in it. Maybe a bit of orange juice instead or mandarin oranges might be better to us as far as the texture goes. Read More

Not a Fan of this personally, but if you really like bananas it was good. It’s no-frills and literally tastes like bananas and then oranges as you chew them. I was surprised that after it was frozen and the cupcake paper was stuck to the desert, so you will have to have it sit out for a couple minutes to thaw a little so you can get the paper off.

I altered this a bit, used three oranges, two bananas, some orange zest, vanilla soy milk, vanilla extract, some cinnamon and a dash of chocolate protein powder! Read More
