  • banana "ice cream"

    Just got back from the store. Going to make banana ice cream tonight. So amazing and simple. One ingredient - bananas! Peel a couple ripe bananas, cut into thirds or fourths and freeze. When ready, place frozen bananas into magic bullet, ninja or similar appliance and pulse. At first not much seems to happen but then the bananas become a soft serve! DO NOT add any juice etc. ONLY bananas. Put right into bowl and top with crushed nuts of choice. I might use a drizzle of chocolate agave or a small amount of dark chocolate. If desired, place soft serve into freezer for a while to firm up more before serving.

    frozen bananas and chilled coconut milk blended is really good too.
    I like to add almond butter and cocoa powder

      Add a few frozen strawberries and a dash of either stevia or vanilla extract and it tastes like the frozen yogurt at yogen fruz (for you canadians).

            dont use agave its highly processed and really and truely is just as bag as high fructose corn syrup. if banana is ripe enough do not need any added agave. Honey would have seemed like a better option...IF U MUST use a sweetner. Agave is 90% fructose, processed at very high heats

              Ya I agree but even honeys not great at all either with the fructose content. I use stevia myself.

                I love banana "ice cream" - so yummy! My kids don't seem to be able to tell the difference. They ask for it all the time! I have to be careful though, too many bananas causes me to gain weight.

                  depending on who you are, this is still a high sugar treat...if you're lean and your body is efficient, it should be fine, but for those wishing to lose some fat...I would reserve this treat for ONLY AFTER a good workout...and even then, rarely. It is fabulous though... if you sprinkle cocoa powder in it...as it's pureeing....and then a bit of stevia and vanilla ..puree some more...it's amazing! I always have half, frozen avacados handy too, in case I run out of fresh ones, and throwing a half of that in makes it even more rich and creamy. :-) like chocolate pudding..... mmm..

                    Does anyone have any bright ideas for replacing the banana with something else? I'm pretty badly intolerant to bananas and avocados are a complete no go so it can be hard to find something thickening for desserts like this.

                      coconut milk thickens when chilled. I freeze it, then scrape some into a bowl with a big fork or spoon. Give it a few minutes to soften then you can stir it into a soft serve

                        Ok, I guess you could blend in some frozen berries to make it a bit less rich too. I'd imagine it's hard to eat too much pure coconut milk! My mum makes ice-cream just by blending frozen berries with regular cream and stevia so maybe that would work just as well with chilled coconut milk.

                          vanilla extract & coco powder is good.

                          A few berries and the juice of a lemon or lime will make it taste like sherbert

                            I make "ice cream" with frozen strawberries, and a few tablespoons of coconut milk. I don't like bananas. The coconut milk makes it creamy and helps the blender blades from getting stuck.
