There are so many banana based ice cream and smoothie recipes out there, it may be difficult to understand how exquisitely delicious this blender soft serve is. Although frozen bananas are the base, the flavor of bananas is almost unnoticeable behind the delicious and delicate flavors in this ice cream.
The recipe is so easy, even my ten year old can whip up a batch all by himself. And the best part is, its low in sugar, so it won’t cause jittery hyperness of other ice creams. To get started, peel and cut bananas in half and and freeze over night. The best bananas for this recipe are spotted brown on the outside and still firm and white on the inside.
You Will Need:
1 ½ frozen bananas
1 cup milk, preferably a nut milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon gray sea salt
2 to 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
dash ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons sugar or stevia (we use homemade fig or date syrup)
Add all ingredients in order given to a bullet-type blender. Blend until smooth. You may need to add a little more milk, if the ingredients freeze too solid to spin in the decanter. Serve up as is, or freeze for up to 20 minutes to make a scoopable ice cream to serve guests.
