Here is a great way to make healthy ice cream just with fruit and whole foods!
You basically blend frozen bananas with frozen fruit or flavourings of your choice. It is so easy, delicious and healthy.
When I have bananas going spotty or see them on special at the produce store I freeze them. I take the skins off and break them up into bendable chunks and put them in old revive salad containers. Then when I want some ice cream I am prepared!!!
The ideal way is to put the ingredients through a screw juicer (like a champion) however this recipe will work in a food processor (with an S blade). If you have an older or smaller one you are best doing small batches.
Just put the ingredients in and process. It will look like it is just chunky and doing nothing, but after around 1 minute it will start to turn into a silky creamy healthy ice cream!!!!
If you are having difficulty getting to this point you can either add a little water (slowly) to help it along, or soften your bananas for around 30 minutes before using. Or you may need to turn the food processor off and press the ingredients down with a spatula or wooden spoon.
Here is the main recipe with some tasty variants: Don't forget to garnish!!!!
