Banana Ice Cream….You have to Try this!

When I first read this post over on Gena’s blog, Choosing Raw, I just knew that I had to take the bananas I had sitting out & place them in the freezer to make this “ice cream”.  I took two, perfectly ripe bananas, peeled them, cut them into large chunks & place in the freezer.  I kept them in the freezer all day (about 6+ hours) and took them out after dinner to make my “ice cream”.  I placed the frozen bananas in my food processor and let her rip.  A word to the wise (hopefully wiser than me)….hold onto the FP!  Those frozen banana chunks will have that FP hopping all over the place!  I think I nearly scared the pants off of Hannah & Aaron!  LOL!!  I pulsed for a few times & then let it run for 5 minutes.  What I was left with was an amazingly smooth & creamy soft-serve like treat.

I topped my creation with chocolate chips (kind of defeats the raw part of this, but oh well, I am going for gluten-free for the time being, maybe raw down the road ;) ). 

For all those out there who have to be dairy, lactose or casein-free, this is the perfect dessert (sans chocolate chips).  Just top with some fruit or maybe coconut or savor alone.  YUM!!
