We’ve been beating the heat over here with this soft serve that is so smooth, creamy and refreshing that you wouldn’t believe it is also extremely healthy! It’s an all natural dessert- with no extra sugar or preservatives, and completely free of dairy, gluten and soy. It’s “ice cream” you (and your kids) can even enjoy for breakfast! My son believes that this stuff is the best food ever invented.
To make this delicious desert, start with a few ripe bananas. The riper the better, as bananas get sweeter over time.
Peel, chunk and freeze the bananas in a freezer safe bag. This step takes a while, and is best done overnight or the day before. After they are frozen, place the banana chunks in a food processor and blend for a few minutes, scraping the sides every so often with a spatula.
This is what it should look like. If you want, you can be done and enjoy some banana soft serve. Throw a little chocolate and fresh strawberries on top and you’re got yourself a banana split sundae! I like the banana ice cream so much, it seldom makes it into a bowl, I usually grab a spoon and eat it right out of the container!
If you’re looking for a little different flavor, add whatever fresh fruit you want. Fresh is best, or if it is frozen, let it thaw for a little while. It will be much easier to blend, and the texture will be smoother. I had blueberries and raspberries on hand so I threw them in!
Blend for a minute or two and enjoy!
Ok, just one more picture. Yum!
