Frozen fruit ice creams and sorbets made from real fruits are the best way to enjoy something sweet while still eating healthy. They provide no refined sugar while providing your body with superfoods and whole food nutrition. Bananas make a creamy rich ice cream due to its high pectin content. This ice cream remains a favorite allowing me to indulge my sweet tooth without the guilt.
4 ripe bananas (the riper the better)
4-6 Tbsp coconut milk or any non-dairy milk
1 tsp vanilla
A pinch of sea salt
Peel bananas and slice into ½ inch rounds. Place on a parchment-lined tray in a single layer single and freeze for at least 3-4 hours. In a blender or food processor, add the frozen bananas coconut milk, and vanilla. Pulse and scrape down the sides, as necessary. You can add more milk for a soer consistency. Serve and top with your topping of choice.
Helpful tip: is is a great way to use bananas that are starting to get overripe, just slice and freeze them. I keep my frozen banana rounds in a freezer-proof container, so I always have them handy when I am craving something sweet
