Banana Based Ice Cream Alternative

Bananas make the perfect, non-dairy alternative to the loads of sugar, egg yolks and cream used in traditional ice- cream - not to mention the health benefits of this potassium rich snack. Plus, it gives you something else to do with those ripe bananas on a hot, summer day.

Banana Based Non-Dairy Ice Cream Alternative

Cook Time

Prep time: 2 hours
Ready in: 2 hours
Yields: Makes about 8 1/2 cup servings

Ingredients

  • 5 medium sized bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1/4 cup (Flavor Ingredient) peanut butter, chocolate or fruit, etc., (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons (Flavor Enhancer) extract, fruit juice, honey, agave nectar, etc, (optional)
  • Toppings flavored syrup, chips, candy, etc., (optional)
  1. Peel and slice bananas into about 1/4 inch rounds. No need to be precise. Place sliced bananas in a gallon size freezer bag. Spread them out and lay the bag flat in the freezer until frozen - about 2 hours. I prefer to leave them in overnight.
  2. Put frozen bananas into a food processor or heavy duty blender. Blend well. If you're using a blender, you may need to blend small batches at a time. Add your flavor ingredient (chocolate, peanut butter, fruit, etc.) along with any flavor enhancers (extract, fruit juice, honey, agave nectar, etc.). Blend well. Add water or non-dairy milk by the tablespoon as needed to assist in blending to a smooth consistency. Serve soft or freeze for a firmer consistency. Add toppings when served.... and keep experimenting. Have Fun!

      Thanks VacationTrip. I like your recipes, too and will follow. I just made Peanut Butter Banana ice cream with honey. It was delicious and I didn't feel a bit guilty when I ate three servings in one day.
