A bonus recipe not included in Easy Gluten-Free Entertaining by Christine Seelye-King and Aimee DuFresne.

What if I told you that you could make a soft-serve ice cream in minutes just using your blender? And what if I also told you that this ice cream not only tasted great, has all-natural ingredients and is also healthy? Are you jumping for joy as you salivate in anticipation? I thought so.

Well, wait no longer, here are the details on how to make the easiest ice cream ever.

Ingredients

  • 3-5 ripe bananas, peeled, chopped, and frozen
  • ¼ cup coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation and Instructions

  1. In a high-speed blender, put in the coconut milk, vanilla extract and frozen bananas.
  2. Blend, from low to high speed, until smooth and creamy.
  3. Serve immediately. If left out too long, the bananas will turn brown and mushy.
  4. Top with Mixed Berry Compote (Recipe in the Cookbook) or Chocolate Orange Fudge Sauce (Recipe in the Cookbook).

Variations

  • The milk can be omitted but it does make for easier blending. You can also use a food processor although this takes slightly longer to achieve the desired result. The bananas will become grainy at first and then will eventually become smooth and creamy.
  • Add frozen berries for a sorbet with raspberries, strawberries and blueberries.
  • Swap the bananas with ripe frozen mangoes.
  • Using ripe bananas should ensure the ice cream is sweet enough. If you find it needs to be sweeter, add a little natural sweetener (e.g. maple syrup, stevia, coconut nectar).
