Banana Ice Cream

Banana Ice Cream-1-6Can you believe it’s already September? This summer just really flew by. I’m sure those of you with children or who are going back to school yourselves really feel a big change at the beginning of each school year. For me, it simply means that the days will soon be cooling off and we will have perfect weather until next May. Yay! There are definitely perks to being a Floridian.

Since the beginning of a new school year means that most of you will be extra busy now a days, I though I would share a really easy dessert recipe that I’ve been enjoying a lot lately. I’ve always been a huge ice cream lover and it’s my dessert of choice most of the time. However, I can only have a tiny bit at a time, since I’m slightly lactose intolerant. Anyway, when I saw this recipe all over the internet, it seemed too good to be true. When I tried it one evening, both Sergi and I were amazed at how creamy, luscious and velvety is it. Give it a try. It’s especially nice when you have some spotty brown bananas on hand that you don’t know what to do with.Ā

      I always use a different amount of bananas, whatever I happen to have in the house, so it’s hard to say. Besides, bananas are different sizes. I will have to measure next time I make it.

      I have never tried it, Natasha, so I can’t say for sure, although in my opinion, a food processor would work best. A blender is best used for ingredients that have at least some part of them that are liquid, and in this case, if you add any liquid,it will not be ice cream consistency, but more like a smoothie.

        Thanks for reply Olga. I will have to buy food processor now lol šŸ™‚ i really want to make this healthy and yummy ice cream for my kids since they really like ice creams but most have lots of sugar.

    Wow, a raw vegan ice cream! Yum, I will need to try this. Lately we are trying to incorporate more raw vegetable, fruit dishes into our diet, this for sure will be a hit in the sweet department. Thank you Olga!

    Awesome recipe Olga. Your ice cream is very light and yellow. Mine was brown. But it was too sweet. I didn’t add sugar. It’s just too sweet. The banana itself.
