Ice cream for breakfast? If it’s this stuff, then by all means, indulge! I have an ice cream maker, but I realize that not everyone does, and I believe that shouldn’t stop someone from being able to enjoy homemade healthy ice cream. Hence, I came up with this nutritious and delicious recipe for homemade banana strawberry ice cream that doesn’t require an ice cream maker! This is just as creamy and delicious as the real deal, but without all the processed sugars, and it’s also dairy and gluten free! Win, win, win all around!
This is a really easy-to-make recipe, and you will love the result! Let’s get to it!
HEALTHY HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY BANANA ICE CREAM
Ingredients: Makes about 6 cups
- 6 bananas
- 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
- 5 Tbsp. of the creme that’s on the top of a can of unsweetened coconut milk (make sure your can is BPA free)
- 1 1/2 tsp. alcohol free vanilla
- small pinch of stevia (optional) – I didn’t use any, but it depends on how sweet you like your ice cream.
1.) Peel your bananas and cut into slices. Place the slices on a plate and stick the plate in the freezer for 2 hours minimum.
2.) After bananas are frozen, place the bananas and the frozen strawberries in a food processor (if you don’t have a food processor, you can use a blender). Process on high till mixed well and becoming smooth.
3.) Add the coconut creme, vanilla, and stevia.
4.) Blend till smooth.
5.) Transfer mixture to a container with a lid and freeze for a minimum of 3 hours.
6.) Once frozen, scoop into a bowl and serve.
