For me, summer is a season of contradictions. On the one hand, the hot weather makes me want to face-plant into a chocolate sundae and on the other, I want to lose weight.
My antidote: homemade vanilla soft serve.
Not only will my jeans thank me for shovelling this deliciousness down my gob instead of a Magnum, so will my busy schedule as this recipe literally takes less than a minute to get from my freezer, to my food processor, to my mouth.
4 frozen bananas (broken into small chunks)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup coconut or almond milk
Simply blend all ingredients in a high speed food processor until a smooth soft-serve consistency is achieved.
Enjoy immediately plain or top with yummy stuff.
I topped mine with coconut chips and Whittakers 72% dark chocolate…
Also good with fresh strawberries…
And natural peanut butter…
Or a mixture of both!
PS This recipe is not only healthy and delicious but also naturally free from dairy, gluten and refined-sugar, making it an ideal ice-cream alternative for you and your little munchkins! X
I really need to start freezing bananas, they seem like such a useful thing to have in the freezer. Thanks for the dairy-free recipe!
I often buy a lot of bananas when they’re on sale and freeze them. They’re definitely super useful! X
