It’s no secret that I go nanas for bananas. A good 20% of my recipes on this blog include bananas, like my favorite post-workout green smoothie, my peanut butter covered banana snack or these vegan banana blueberry pancakes.
With the scorching temperatures in Australia at the moment, it’s about time that I come up with my first nana ice cream recipe for this blog. I always have frozen bananas in the freezer for smoothies anyways, so whipping up this recipe is fairly simple.
I’m sure most of you already know the basic concept of blending frozen bananas in a blender/food processor until the results have the exact texture of soft serve ice cream. The banana tastes surprisingly neutral, making it a great refined sugar free/dairy free base for other flavors. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that it tastes exactly like the real deal, but it certainly can satisfy your ice cream cravings! Whilst most other frozen fruits make for an icy texture, banana makes it creamy and rich thanks to its high pectin content.
