(Raw) Banana Ice Cream

18 Oct

The first time we tried this frozen delight was in the restaurant at the Ubud Sari Health Resort in Bali, Indonesia. The menu description made some amazing claims: “Ice cream that’s good for you! No dairy, no fat, no added sugar.”

We scrutinized. Surely this claim was too good to be true!

Well, it makes me very happy to share with you that this in fact was no gimmick. This creamy ice cream is legitimately healthy. 100% raw, 100% vegan, 100% unprocessed and best of all, 100% delicious. Actually, best of all has to be how stinking easy it is to make. Writing instructions almost seems silly.

Raw Banana Ice Cream

serves 2

  • 2-3 large bananas, cut into chucks, frozen

Throw bananas into a food processor and give ‘er a whirl for approximately 5 minutes. You are waiting for the bananas to break down. As times goes by they will get increasingly fluffier, creamy, and smooth. Wait for it. No seriously. Wait for it.

You can scoop the ice cream directly into bowls or into another container to re-freeze if the bananas have softened too much.

I like mine with chocolate syrup. Evan prefers his plain. We both agree that when prepared correctly this treat has the consistency of soft-serve without any of the associated guilt. In other words, an epic win-win.
