Equipment

  • blender or food processor

Ingredients

  • 3 cups frozen banan chunks can substitute other frozen fruit
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk substitute almond or oat
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla or 1/2 vanilla bean, scraped

Instructions

  • A day ahead of making this dessert, peel and freeze a bunch of bananas, breaking them into chunks.
  • When you’re ready to have dessert, place three cups of the frozen banana chunks into a blender or food processor.
  • Add the coconut milk (almond or oat) and vanilla.
  • If using a blender, start on low speed and increase up to high speed, stopping and scraping the container sides and blending again to incorporate.
  • If using a food processor, begin by pulsing the mixture to break the bananas down and then blend constantly until it becomes creamy. You may have to stop and scrape the sides.
  • If the mixture is having a hard time blending, add more milk a tablespoon at a time until a thick soft serve consistency is reached..
  • Portion out into serving bowls. Top with granola, chopped nuts, cacao powder or nibs.
  • Serve and enjoy. This is also delicious served with your favorite cake, brownie or between cookies.
