I've made this before, and it's really yummy. (Totally not low carb though!)
Strawberry Banana Coconut Milk Ice Cream
In a food processor blend the following (all measurements approximate)
1/2 frozen banana
5-6 frozen strawberries
1 cup coconut milk (full fat)
1/2-1 tsp vanilla extract
Puree until there is a smooth consistency--add more/less coconut milk to get the right ice cream-like texture.
SOOOOO delicious--my dh thought it tasted as good as the homemade strawberry ice cream I've made in the past, and he can be pretty picky, esp. when it comes to *my* cooking. If you keep a few bananas and a bag of strawberries in the freezer, you can make this in minutes. My favorite part is that there is no sweetener needed--the bananas certainly make it sweet enough!
Thank you so much... I will defiantly be trying this! I might put some protein powder in it to balance the carb overload. and im thinking about getting an ice cream maker and putting the cocunut milk and fruit in it.
GREAT idea ondrea! The sugar rush of this is a bit too much for me--I love the idea of adding a protein powder....I also wonder about adding eggs or egg yolks--I've read of folks doing that with ice cream for a better texture. I need to look into that!
You could totally use a blender to mix it all together than throw it in an ice cream maker! I really found it to have a very similar consistency to what comes out of my ice cream maker when I food processed it (w/ the fruit pre-frozen) though.
My new easy favorite.. Frozen blueberries, shedded coconut, & the cream from a cold can of coconut milk. Mix up very quickly, & the frozen BB's freeze the coconut milk instantly to them. So it like a frozen treat with zero effort of prep. Reminds me of jumbo Dippin Dots.
