Recipe Directions

Peel the bananas, pineapple and orange. Put the fruit in your blender bowl [I used my VitaMix] with the water and the agave nectar. We don’t like really sweet stuff so you should put in additional sweetener to your taste. Blend smooth. Pour into gelato/sorbet/ice cream maker bowl & freeze. When done, sprinke with shredded dried coconut and serve.

Kmqq's Thoughts

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 frige 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 shreded 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 AWESOME! 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 water and it would fit better into the frozen bowl of the gelato maker.

Thanks for the question Emeraldgem. No, I froze it using my gelato maker and that way it comes out soft-serve so no need to soften-and-stir. That slightly melted look in the picture is actual melting. I forgot to take a picture before we started eating it. So when I remembered about the photo, I grabbed my husband's bowl and shot a picture of it as he was eating it from the bottom up on the other side (the side you don't see - LOL!) leaving a good shot on this side. I had just started eating it right from the top down and my bowl looked pretty funky!

Hmmmmm? I have an icecream maker with the bowl that you freeze, when I moved I lost the churner. After you frooze it, did you let it melt some and then stir?

Even though my machine had a box that said "Gelato Maker" it really is the regular electric ice cream maker with the bowl that you freeze. You can pick one up at Wal-Mart or K-Mart for about $29. I got mine about 6 years ago at Goodwill for $5 and it's been working perfectly ever since. Thank you Waterbaby and Sky Princess for looking at my recipe. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it.
