Banana-Berry Ice Cream (no ice cream machine needed!)

vegan banana-strawberry ice creamContributed by Matthew from Vegan HeartlandI know recipes like this one have been floating around the Vegan blogosphere for a while now, but the first time I heard of “healthy ice cream” was when Dr. Oz dedicated half of his show to the movie Forks Over Knives I thought it was a really great idea and a nice alternative to ice creams that are loaded with refined sugars. I was actually afraid to even call this a recipe since it really takes little effort to make and you really could use any fruit you’d like. I just happened to have frozen strawberries on hand. I can’t wait to try this with other flavors! If you’re looking for a sweet and healthy dessert, this is definitely it! 

Serves: 2

  • 2 bananas, sliced and frozen overnight or several hours
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.),
    also frozen if you’d like
  • Shredded coconut for topping, optional

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until well combined and creamy. Must be eaten right away or the bananas become mushy and more “banana texture” like. Or, you can refreeze for a few minutes before eating.
