Banana Split Ice Cream
We are getting back into warmer seasons, and what better way to celebrate incoming warm weather than with ice cream! I’d never heard of banana split ice cream before, so I decided to be creative and try something new. The best part? You don’t need an ice cream maker, just a blender or food processor!
This recipe serves two. I’ve calculated two bananas per person.
4 frozen bananas, cut into small chunks – make sure you cut the bananas up before freezing them
1/2 cup defrosted (previously frozen) strawberries, so that you have the liquid with the strawberries
1/2 cup MimicCreme, unsweetened (or heavy cream or milk of choice)
1 teaspoon alcohol free vanilla
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
nuts – optional
cherries or other fruit – optional
- In a small bowl mix the liquid sweetener and cocoa powder until well combined. Feel free to heat up the liquid slightly if it’s not mixing well. Set aside.
- In a blender put the bananas, strawberries, MimicCreme (or milk of choice), and vanilla. Blend until smooth and it looks like ice cream.
- Spoon into bowls, and top with your homemade chocolate syrup and whatever other optional ingredients you would like.
If you don’t want to eat it right away, or if you have left-overs, you can freeze it and then take it out of the freezer about 30 minutes before you want to eat it.
