Homemade no Dairy Ice Cream
4 large very ripe bananas Optional: 1-2 tbsp. of Almond milk
Raspberry, Chocolate Chip:
1 c. frozen raspberries ½ c. dark chocolate chips
Peanut or Almond butter
2 tbsp. natural peanut or almond butter
1 c. chopped walnuts 1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup frozen chopped mango
1 c. Frozen Strawberries 1/2 c. chopped almonds
2 tbsp. dark chocolate sauce
Peel bananas and slice into ½ inch pieces. On a large plate of baking sheet, arrange the bananas in a single layer. Freeze for 11/2-2 hours. Using a powerful blender or food processor, puree frozen banana slices until the mixture is creamy and smooth. Add 1 of the variations above or another variation of your choice and puree. If you would like a bit more creamy texture you can add 1-2 tbsp. of almond milk. For a soft serve ice cream version you will want to serve immediately. If you would like a harder version that can be scooped, just place in the freezer for a few hours. Serve in a desert dish with your favourite healthy toppings!
