Strawberry Coconut Banana Ice Cream

(Makes about a quart of ice cream.)

Ingredients

4-5 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
6 large, ripe strawberries
1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened)
1 teaspoon strawberry OR coconut extract (optional)
powdered sugar or another vegan sweetener, if needed
a splash of coconut milk or creamer, if needed

Directions

1 böhmische blasmusik herunterladen. Put the bananas and strawberries in the food processor and pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl bestes bildbearbeitungsprogramm kostenlosen deutsch. If necessary, add a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer to get things moving!

Alternately, you can allow the bananas to defrost on the counter top for 30 to 60 minutes beforehand, so that they’re easier to work with kostenlose kriegsspieleen. Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a butter knife.

Note: Since introducing extra liquids (such as non-dairy milk) into the mix results in a slightly icier finished product, I prefer defrosting to non-dairy milk audible herunterladen pc. If you’re in a hurry, pop the bananas in the microwave for 20 to 45 seconds instead.

2. Add the shredded coconut and pulse until blended. If desired, add a strawberry or coconut extract for a more intense flavor herunterladen.

3. Sample the batter and add a bit of sugar if needed.

4. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container. Enjoy immediately as soft serve, or pop the ice cream in the freezer for an hour+ for a firmer dessert silvester bilder herunterladen. Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, microwave it for ten seconds to help loosen it up (or let the container sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to eating, depending on room temp) twinmotion kostenlos.

This tastes great served with fresh strawberries and topped with shredded coconut and vegan sprinkles!
