Raw Banana Ice Cream

EASY SHMEAZY RAW ICE CREAM!  It’s so easy, you’re going to say, nuh-uh…there’s no way that’s all you have to do.  And I’ll say, yeahhh-huhhhhh!  Watch this…

Take 3 RIPE bananas.  Chop them into 2 inch or so pieces.  Put them in a freezer baggie or a Tupperware container and put them in the freezer for a few hours, or overnight.    When you take them out, they will look like this:
frozen ‘nanas!
Take your frozen ‘nanas, and put them in a food processor.  I added one tablespoon of raw honey, but you don’t even have to do THAT.  Pulse it a few times to get them to break up.  My food processor wanted to dance off the counter, but that’s because I had left these in the freezer for 3 days and they were hard as rocks.  Not necessary to do – just a few hours or overnight tops is all you need.  So put the ‘nanas in, and pulse a bit, and when it looks broken up just press down the on button and let it run for 5 minutes or so.   
I added less than a quarter cup of spring water as the food processor was running just to make it a little creamier.  You can do that, or not, or add a little nut milk, or add nothing – totally up to you.  
After 5 minutes, it looks like THIS:
Yep.  That’s all you had to do.  Put frozen bananas in a food processor and blend.  
I flavored mine with a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon and a tsp of nutmeg to give it that spicy fall pumpkin-ish flavor and I also added a chunk of frozen (real) pumpkin.  It worked! I had pumpkin spice ice cream!  Next time I make it I’ll use less bananas so it tastes more pumpkin-y.
If you want to make raw chocolate ice cream, just add a tablespoon of raw cacao powder …you can even add raw cacao nibs!    If you want it to taste like strawberry ice cream, just add a ton of frozen strawberries to the food processor.  
It’s so easy.  This has no dairy, no added sugar (unless you want to with some raw honey, agave, or dates), no chemicals, no food coloring number 5, nothing you cannot pronounce. This soft serve is just BANANAS!  That’s IT!  Flavor it however you choose!  Get creative.  It’s pretty hard to mess this up.  It also looks quite pretty in a glass 🙂
And tasted quite yummy in my tummy.


Hope everyone is outside enjoying this beautiful weekend!  

Lovely comments!

  1. What a weekend, and such yummy goods love it. Will try the banana ice cream tomorrow. Did you leave yours overnight? – http://getfitordietrying1.blogspot.com/

  2. I left mine in there for 3 days which was wayyy too long! The bananas were hard as rocks! So I would say 6 hours in the freezer would probably be perfect, but overnight works too! You don’t want them so hard that your food processor jumps off the counter!!! 😀 Let me know how it turns out!

  3. It Was yummy, and its healthy can’t ask for more. Loved it 🙂

  4. was that dinner?
