I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream…Non-Dairy!
The non-dairy ice cream you can purchase at the grocery is delicious, however, sometimes when you need a quick ice cream without going to the store, these should work for you, especially if you keep frozen bananas in the freezer!!
(Pictures to be posted at a later date)
4 bananas, frozen in chunks
3 small containers of raspberries, rinsed & well-drained
2 containers of strawberries, rinsed, well-drained with stems removed & diced
honey (or other sweetener), approximately 1-3 tablespoons
salt – pinch
Rinse fruit; chop strawberries. Layer strawberry chunks and raspberries over parchment paper on a cookie sheet & freeze until solid.
Layer one container of raspberries & half of one container of strawberries on parchment paper, cover with another piece & freeze until just about frozen through (1-2 hours).
Blend one container of raspberries until smooth; push through a mesh strainer removing the seeds; repeat with one container of strawberries; set strained puree aside in refrigerator if not using right away.
Put banana chunks in high power blender & blend until just about smooth; add in puree & blend until smooth.
Add honey & salt & blend again until smooth; pour into bowl & fold in frozen berries.
Cover & return to freezer until frozen through (overnight).
S’mores (soft-serve like)
1-2 frozen bananas
1 jar marshmallow creme
2 waffle cones, crushed into large pieces or 1 1/2 – 2 cups golden grams
1/2 – 1 cups mini chocolate chips (I like Good Life)
Blend bananas in blender until just about smooth.
Add in marshmallow creme & blend again until smooth.
Fold in Golden Graham’s and chocolate chips; pour into bowl and freeze until hardened.
Caramel Butter Rum
2 frozen bananas, blended until smooth
3/4 c white granulated sugar
2 tablespoons honey (or choice of sweetener)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon imitation butter extract (I used Watkins – I find it at Wal-Mart)
1 teaspoon imitation caramel extract
1/2 teaspoon imitation rum extract
Over medium low heat cook sugar in saucepan; watch carefully, this will burn very quickly once sugar has started to turn. Once all the sugar has been dissolved & is browned, stir & quickly add to the banana mixture.
While sugar is cooking, combine blended bananas, honey & extracts and blend until smooth.
Once sugar is ready, add to bananas. Once the sugar hits the cold banana mixture, it will harden up solid; just whirl in blender until broke up into small chunks & blended well into banana mixture. Place in bowls & freeze until hardened.
I hope you enjoy these flavors as much I enjoyed creating them.
