Rating5/5 (from 1 ratings)5
YieldA very generous quart; 8 people
3 bananas (frozen)
½ small pineapple
1 orange (I used Valencia)
1/8 cup blue agave nectar
1 cup water
½ cup coconut (dried, shredded)
1. Peel the bananas, pineapple, and orange.
2. Put the fruit in your blender bowl (I used my Vitamix) with the water and agave nectar. We don’t like really sweet stuff so you should put in additional sweetener to your taste.
3. Blend smooth.
4. Pour into gelato/sorbet/ice cream maker bowl and freeze.
5. When done, sprinkle with coconut and serve.

I wanted something good for dessert and being partial to “ice cream,” I thought I’d whip something up fast.
So since I had half a small pineapple left in the fridge, that was the main flavor.
I used the frozen banana for the texture and “cold” so it wouldn’t take so long to freeze.
I added the orange as a bridge flavor between the sweet of the banana and the tart-sweet of the pineapple.
I actually wanted to put the shredded coconut into the ice cream at the end like a ‘crunchie’ but by the time I got to the kitchen to do it, it was already overflowing the gelato maker so I just sprinkled it on the top after it was served.
It tastes awesmoe! The picture is 1/2 of what it makes minus what my husband had eaten before I remembered that I needed to take a picture (the missing part is turned to the back-- lol!)
You could serve 8 people generously from what this made. You could actually leave out the 1 cup of water and it would fit better into the frozen bowl of the gelato maker.
