Blueberry Banana Ice Cream

30 Sep

Having a healthy relationship with food does not mean you have to give up treats.

I love ice cream but I cannot tolerate dairy.

So I tried this Plant Based Ice Cream recipe I found in Health Magazine.

I am quit impressed that it turned out so creamy and delicious.

 

Ingredients
4 ripe bananas 1/4 cup light agave nectar 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 cup frozen blueberries

Step 1
In advance peel and slice bananas and place on a lined cookie sheet. Place in the freezer  until firm, at least 6 hours and up to overnight.

Step 2
In a food processor, puree bananas, 2 Tbsp. agave and 1/4 cup almond milk, scraping sides of bowl, until smooth, 2 to 4 minutes. Spread ice cream in an 8-inch square freezer-safe container, cover and place in freezer.

Step 4
Remove banana ice cream from freezer and gently swirl in the blueberry mixture using a rubber spatula. Cover and freeze until slightly firm, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately, or store in freezer in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Let soften slightly before scooping.
