Ice Cream in 1 Minute (With Raspberry Swirl and Mango Variations)

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:


Raspberry Swirl

  1. Blend 1 frozen banana.
  2. Take a couple tablespoons (or more, if desired), of the raw vegan raspberry jam (click for recipe) and swirl it in.


Mango Ice Cream

    Dumb question.. But do you peel the banana before freezing? Or freeze w the peel in tact?
