I've officially lost track of how many times I've had this as a meal in the past month. Really the past several months (I'm truly obsessed). I know many people think it's weird or unnatural or unhealthy (I'm looking at you mom) but it makes me feel good inside and my tastebuds do a happy dance just thinking about it. If you've never had banana "ice cream" (or "nice cream" as it's sometimes called by the Instagram vegan food bloggers), then you're missing out! Unless you don't like bananas.

Anyway, I just wanted to ramble about it since it's so delicious and glorious and easy. A one ingredient base recipe with endless possibilities. 

METHOD:

1. Freeze as many bananas as you want for a few hours - at least 6, but preferably overnight. (I use 3-4 bananas per bowl). 

2. Defrost for a few minutes before using so that they blend without adding too much water, or any at all if you have a high speed blender or strong Nutribullet. 

3. Blend until smooth and lump free.

What I like to add:

1. Raw cacao powder. This is my favorite was to eat it, a couple of tablespoons of this and I'm in chocolate heaven.

2. Add cinnamon and then top with maple syrup and cinnamon. Alternatively, you could add the maple syrup while blending along with the cinnamon.

3. Matcha green tea powder. I've only tried this once but it was pretty good. I'd imagine if you were big fan of matcha it would be even better.

4. Fresh or frozen strawberries. 

9 times out of 10 I will do the chocolate option. I like to top it with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a bit of the raw cacao crumble I mentioned in an earlier post. I've had this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Not on the same day, promise. It's so simple and easy to do, with minimal clean up. I really love having the knowledge of frozen bananas waiting for me in the freezer to whizz up if I'm feeling lazy.





The stuff of dreams.
