Banana Ice Cream (dairy-free)
- 4-6 Medium, Ripe, Peeled and Frozen Bananas
- ¼ tsp Organic Vanilla Bean
- 1 tsp of honey (Optional)
- 2 Tbsp of Hot Water
Organic whole vanilla beans are available in the spice section of better grocery stores. Take one Vanilla Bean, slice it down the middle and use a knife to scrape the inside of the whole bean which should yield about ¼ tsp of vanilla bean. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or other powerful blender (such as a Bullet, Vita Mix, or Ninja) until a smooth, scoopable consistency is reached. Place in a glass dish topped with dark chocolate (60% or higher) shavings or chips, nuts or cold espresso on top. Since banana can be quite naturally sweet, we do recommend this as a special treat and within the portion recommendation provided, especially for those seeking to stabilize blood sugar levels, lose weight, or manage diabetes.
