Banana Ice cream

Banana Ice cream

This banana ice cream doesn’t require any time-consuming beating or costly ice cream machines! It also doesn’t contain any dairy so it’s a wonderful treat for all the dairy intolerant folk out there who miss out when it comes to ice cream. Surprisingly it tastes like real banana ice cream too! With different variation options, there’s a flavour everyone will like. Make sure to use ripe bananas, even ones going brown, for a sweeter, creamier ice cream. The addition of almond butter adds some healthy fats and nutrients while the coconut cream makes it creamier. I don’t add sweeteners because bananas have a high sugar content.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe bananas, peeled, chopped and frozen (the riper the better)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Method:

  1. Add frozen bananas to a food processor with the other ingredients.
  2. Process until creamy. Freeze for a firmer ice cream or enjoy as is!

Variations:

  • Add vanilla to the above and/or other spices.
  • 1/3 tablespoon of carob powder or cocoa for chocolate and banana ice cream.
  • 1/2 a cup of desiccated coconut for banana and coconut ice cream.
  • 1 cup of berries for banana and berry ice cream.

Enjoy!
