    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.


    LMK how it comes out for you if you try it!

    I stole an idea from someone else (maybe Tarlach?) and tried it just tonight in our new ice cream maker... Turned out well! Basically:


    Blend 1 c. coconut milk, 1 banana, and 2 egg yolks

    Heat gently in pan & stir until mixture thickens (this cooks the yolks)

    Cool & stir for a few minutes, then chill in refrigerator

    Throw in ice cream maker

    I bet that would taste awesome, esp w/ a little vanilla or orange extract (I'm in love w/ orange extract right now...) Sounds sooo yummy! Will have to try!
