February 2019 Update:
Unfortunately Wanna Banana has been permanently closed.
The absolute guilt-free alternative to ice cream! Wanna Banana offers frozen bananas in three options: blended as ice cream, cut in pieces as frozen snack or blended as a smoothie.
You can choose between sizes and toppings, of which almost all of them (except for the chocolate chips, chocolate syrup and honey) are vegan! I went for the ice cream with peanut butter (which was prepared right in front of me) and it was absolutely delicious – the consistence of the ice cream was much smoother than what I was used to from recent ice creams I had tried and it was perfectly sweet.
Alternatively they offer ice cream with dates, raw cacao, cinnamon, blueberry and strawberry. If that’s not enough for you, there’s even the option to add almond flakes, blueberries, chia seeds and many more on top!
For the smoothies they’ve got choices like Mango & Chia, Pomegranate & Berry or Almond Boost.
I have to admit that 22 AED for a cup of frozen bananas with peanut butter is a lot, but it’s still a lot cheaper and healthier than the ice cream I normally get at the grocery store!
Stop by and try the next time you are in Kite Beach or Sports City and let me know which one you tried and how you liked it!
