Basic Banana Ice Cream

serves one

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (or other plant-based milk), if needed

Strawberry Banana Ice Cream

serves one

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup (240ml) frozen strawberries
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (or other plant-based milk), if needed

Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

serves one

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1.5 tablespoons raw cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut palm syrup or other sweetener
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (or other plant-based milk), if needed

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Peel the bananas and cut them into small coins. Put the bananas into an airtight container and freeze for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  2. Combine the bananas (and other fruit) in a blender and pulse until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as necessary. If the mixture is too thick, add the almond milk to achieve the desired consistency. Add flavoring and sweetener, if using, and blend until combined.  Scoop into a bowl, serve, and enjoy!
