Overview

Raw soft-serve ice cream is as easy as freezing peeled bananas and processing them in your food processor. For added ice cream bliss, crumble a truffle or other raw goodie (or berries) on top of your ice cream before eating.

Directions

  • 1. Freeze bananas for at least 8 hours. (Peel and chop into quarters. Freeze in tupperware or ziploc bag.)
  • 2. Place frozen banana chunks in food processor.
  • 3. Process in food processor for approximately 5 minutes. You may occasionally need to stop the processor and scrape the banana mixture off the sides to ensure proper processing.
  • 4. As you process, the mixture will become creamier and fluffier. Before serving, add the vanilla and continue processing a few seconds more. You'll know the mixture is ready once it resembles soft-serve ice cream.
  • 5. Consume immediately. (Do not refreeze.)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This is just divine. Try it. You’ll be shocked at how good frozen bananas can taste!

For added ice cream bliss, crumble a truffle or other raw goodie (or berries) on top of your ice cream before eating.

Only make as much as you can eat right away.

Hi Lone, I love it too. I like adding little niblets in, like crushed almonds or cacao nibs. I made canteloupe sorbet this morning too. I think the banana is my most-made one though, because I always freeze my bananas (before they go bad when they're out on the counter) so I've always got lots of frozen bananas on hand.

LOVE! I've made this a couple of times!! Love adding strawberries and blue berries! Never buying ice cream(vegan) again!
Slowly but surely implementing more raw into my diet! Fabulous!

This was SO good, I made it for my sisters and brother and parents and they all said it was really good and can't wait until I make it again. It was really good. Definitely recommended.

Great with raw cacao in the mixture too and a few dates makes it slightly chewy like toffee chips!

I make this yummy one often! But! I add a bit of coconut cream while im blending -- the frozen banana 'stiffens' the coconut cream very slightly and you get more of a ice-cream texture/creaminess :)
Its rather tropical too! Without being overwhelmingly sweet :)
Sometimes i add a little honey and cinnamon for a different dimension on it ----- Everyone i plonk this dessert in front of loves it!

Definitely Eshe! This one can pretty much be made at any size, it processes really well. And you don't need to add the vanilla either.

I LOVE this recipe and have made it often. Just wanted to say that you can re-freeze. I did the other day as I'd made too much for us to eat and I thought that it was worth a try rather than throwing it away. I took it out of the freezer about 15 minutes before I needed it and it tasted gorgeous. It's worth re-freezing if you have any leftovers (though I appreciate that may be very unlikely!!!).

Ooooh this is great to know!! I refroze just once and it was super hard, but I didn't think to defrost it a bit before noshing on it. I like the idea, because then I might be more likely to make bigger batches (less need to clean the food processor that way!)

Hi Againes, well, I have been known to eat the whole thing in one sitting! But you could certainly make two medium sized servings, or even three very small servings.

I enjoy my frozen ice cream with a tablespoon or two of almond butter for added creaminess. it is as decadent as any store bought kind. can't wait to try it with the frozen berries mixed in. yum!

Kristina, that sounds delicious! Do you use the almond butter on top as a topping or mix it in during processing?
