Ingredients (makes 2 servings):
2 frozen ripe bananas
A splash of milk (I use unsweetened almond or my home-made cashew milk, but any milk will work)
Topping Options (Add 2 to 3 toppings of choice):
Raw Honey / Maple Syrup
Diced Nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts)
Pumpkin Seeds (toasted taste even better)
Chopped Medjool Dates
All-Natural Nut Butter (almond, cashew, peanut)
Fresh or Frozen Fruit
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Peel and chop the ripe bananas into rough chunks or slices. Place in a freezer-proof container (or freezer bag) and freeze for at least 8 hours or overnight.
Place the frozen banana and splash of milk into a high-speed food processor or blender. You can include your toppings at this stage or when ready to serve.
Blend on high for 1 to 2 minutes stopping to scrape the sides every so often. Add more milk for a creamier texture.
Serve immediately as a soft-serve ice cream, or, for a firmer texture, transfer to a freezer-proof container and return to the freezer for at least 1-2 hrs.
