Nut Free Banana Ice Cream Base
Been looking for a nut/seed free ice cream recipe for a while. Got the idea from a restaurant, Bonobo’s. This is just the base. Options are endless what you can add to make other flavors. The banana surprisingly gives it a creamy texture, but not an overly dominating flavor.
3-4 very ripe bananas
1 tablespoon coconut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Put bananas, coconut butter and vanilla in high power blender and process until smooth and creamy. Put in freezer to firm up for about 45 mins – hour. Take out and put in ice cream maker according to instructions (usually about 20 mins or so). If you don’t have an ice cream maker can likely just keep in freezer for a bit longer and process in the blender again at a low speed.
Other ingredients to add to make other flavors:
Mango ice cream—1 ripe mango
Mint chocolate chip—1 tbls. spirulina, fresh mint leaves, handful of cacao nibs
Peach ice cream – 2 ripe peaches
Chocolate banana – 1 tbls of cacao powder
Carbo mint – fresh mint leaves, 2 tbls carob powder
You get the point. Experiment and have fun.
