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!!
