Looking for something cold, fruity, and sweet? Why not some ice cream? Oh, you’re worried because it’s not healthy? Easy – throw some frozen bananas in a blender! It’s yummy and healthy! I find that the blenders with the single-serve containers for smoothies work the best with blending the bananas, and are SO easy to clean! Afterwards, all you have to do is squeeze a little soap in the container, add water, blend, and then rinse off the residue!
Also, with the bananas – I let them sit until they’re super-ripe. Then, I peel the bananas and break them up into 2 or 3 pieces, then wrap each banana individually with plastic wrap and throw them in the freezer. When I want to use them, I let them sit out at room temperature for up to 10 minutes before blending.
So here are a couple super easy variations:
- Blend 1 frozen banana.
- Take a couple tablespoons (or more, if desired), of the raw vegan raspberry jam (click for recipe) and swirl it in.
Mango Ice Cream
- Blend about 1/2 cup frozen mangoes (or more if desired).
- Add frozen banana and blend until mixed thoroughly.
Dumb question.. But do you peel the banana before freezing? Or freeze w the peel in tact?
