When you are avoiding processed sugar, you still crave the sweetness – duh. We have been totally addicted to this fake ice cream, like I buy extra bananas hoping no one will eat them so I can make this
almost every night.
Have you tried Banana “Ice Cream” yet? If you haven’t (you probably have) you are in for a real treat…bad joke.
I wish we stumbled upon this recipe years ago, it’s totally a “where have you been my whole life” sorta thing. I’m not even an ice cream fan, but I am a sweet sugar fan and this nails that craving, like woah. And to make it even more awesome, the kids cannot tell the difference between this and regular old ice cream and it’s good for them. Also the perfect use for bananas that are looking a little freckled.
- 2 sliced and frozen ripe bananas
- 1/2 teaspoon raw honey
- pinch of cinnamon or a splash of vanilla extract (or both)
- as needed cold coconut milk (you can use any kind of milk, but I like how “whipped” coconut milk makes the “ice cream” taste)
Slice 2 bananas and lay them out on a cookie sheet, the put it in the freezer. Freeze for 2 hours. Toss the frozen slices in a blender (only the hardcore/strong blenders will do!), put a bit of honey, cinnamon and a splash of cold coconut milk in the blender. Blend. Add more coconut milk as you need/if you need. Scoop into bowls, eat or top with whatever you dig then eat. We like to drizzle a tiny bit of maple syrup and almond butter on top. mmmmm!
If you haven’t tried it yet, do it
