strawberry-banana ice cream

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.


NomNomPaleo’s Strawberry Banana Ice Cream

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!
