How often is it that you see a recipe you want to make, and happen to have ALL the ingredients on-hand at that very moment? For me, not that often. Especially taking into consideration that it is WAY too early for strawberries here, so why in the world did I have any in the first place… (For a Mother’s Day paleo tart that was delicious.)
Anyway, I was surfing Instagram the other day and came upon NomNomPaleo’s recipe for strawberry banana ice cream. (Obviously, dairy-free.) Her picture was gorgeous, and again, I realized I had all the ingredients necessary. Score.
3 frozen bananas, chopped
1 C frozen strawberries, hulled
1/2 C full-fat coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Place all ingredients in food processor and mix until smooth. (I used my blender and this took a lot of stopping, stirring, and re-starting. However, it only took a few minutes before it totally transformed into a completely perfect soft ice-cream consistency!)
Spoon into a container and freeze!
Both Andrew and I really liked the flavor and texture. With the simple ingredient list, I can see this being something I make with different fruits all summer long!
