Raw Banana Ice Cream

It’s not actually “ice cream,” but it’s cold and delicious!  Best of all it’s an easy and HEALTHY dessert!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Hand mixer/blender
  • Knife and cutting board

Ingredients:

  • 4 bananas (makes 2 servings)
  • Tahini – Sesame seed paste (use a raw, organic version)
  • Vanilla extract (optional)

The Process:

  1. Place the bananas in your freezer.  Leave overnight or until frozen.
  2. Once bananas are frozen, take out and let them thaw.  *Don’t let them get warm, mushy or completely thawed!  You’ll know, because they’ll be rock-hard at first.
  3. Once they soften up – peel the bananas and chop into chunks.
  4. Add the bananas and 3-4 tablespoons of tahini into your hand mixer/blender.SAM_2632
  5. Option to add a dash or two of Vanilla extract.
  6. Blend away – until the bananas are a thick and smooth texture!  The colder the bananas – the longer it will take.
  7. That’s it – you’re ready to serve!

 

 

A few notes:

  • This should serve 2 people – don’t be afraid to add more bananas and more tahini to serve more – but keep the proportions in line.
  • The dash of vanilla extract is optional, but makes a big difference taste-wise.  It’s still delicious without, but just a different flavor.
  • If the mixture is too thick, you can always add some water to thin it out – but not too much!!   2 or 3 tablespoons should do.
  • You can eat this anytime, as a dessert, a snack or after workouts – tahini is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, protein and fiber.
