Blueberry Nana Ice Cream

13 Mar IMG_2166

Spring has finally arrived, and it feels like summer in L.A. It’s time for bike rides, long walks at the beach, laying in the sun and ice cream.

Most ice creams are made with dairy and tons of sugar and artificial colors and flavorings. This recipe is very healthy, since its main ingredient is frozen banana. No added sugar, and no dairy. 

Kids will love it and adults too! They will never guess they are eating homemade awesomeness.

Ingredients 

6 frozen very ripe bananas (the riper the sweeter), slice before freezing 

1 pint fresh blueberries (or frozen)

Method

Place the sliced frozen bananas in a food processor or really good blender such as Vitamix or Blendtec. I use a Cuisinart food processor and it shakes as if it is about to take off, but I hold the base tightly. 

If you choose to use a blender, or your food processor is not very good you might have to any a tiny bit of liquid such as water, coconut water, fruit juice or any milk you prefer.

Pulse until it starts to become creamy and add the blueberries. Pulse again until it reaches a smooth texture, being careful not to over process it.

Choose the topings of your liking and Voilà. You can use cacao powder and nut butter, coconut and lime, just be creative and make your favorite Nana Ice Cream.



If you make a big batch, store in the freezer and leave it at room temperature for ten minutes before you eating. I like to put mine in small glass containers with lid so it’s already portioned and ready to be eaten.

Bom Apetite!
