A couple of characters* came by today looking for a possible job as blog mascots. Honestly, I don’t know about those two. They were chill and all but they seemed much more interested in the ice cream I had made than anything else.
Especially that little one. Totally fascinated by the amazing, super healthy ice cream made out of just frozen bananas. The little guy couldn’t get over it.
Frozen banana ice cream has been floating around the internet for awhile now. I’ve experimented with a number of different additions from soaked cashews to drops of vanilla extract to chopped dates and various fruits.
I liked it best when I kept it simple, two ingredients, banana and another fruit, either cherries or strawberries.
It couldn’t be any easier to make, just slice up a ripe banana and freeze in a single layer. Cut up and freeze whatever fresh fruit you’re using.
In a food processor, blend the frozen fruit until it’s creamy. It may take a few minutes, so don’t give up too soon. Be sure to stop and scrape down the sides so everything is well-blended. It’ll come out like soft-serve, you can eat it as is or pour into a container and freeze until it’s solid.
Serve in a cup or these vegan and gluten-free dessert bowls, they’re like ice cream cones but in a bowl shape.
