I don't remember where I got the base recipe from (frozen bananas, agave vanilla, sea salt) - maybe from here, or one of my raw food books - I have played around with several variations and this by far, the best one yet.

Recipe Directions

Pre-freeze bananas - select 4 very ripened (brown spots on skin), peel them and wrap in plastic wrap or place in covered container and freeze for at least 24 hours. Break frozen bananas in 1/2 or 1/4 and place in food processor along with raw cacao powder, sea salt, vanilla and 1/2 of the cherries. Process until smooth and creamy, adding more agave if necessary. Finally add remainder of cherries and cacao nibs, pulse just enough to break up cherries and ensure they and cacao nibs are evenly mixed throughout the ice cream. Eat some now (wonderful soft-serve consistency) and freeze the rest for later. Enjoy!

Notes:

1) all measurements (with the exception of the 4 bananas) are approximate - adjust according to your taste.

2) You may want to add a little more agave than you think you need to account for the cacao nibs that are added at the end.

I made this last night! Top marks because it's so easy and so delicious! I used honey because I'm out of agave, and I added a little more cacao powder because that's how I roll! What a great use for frozen bananas and the organic cherries I got on sale! Thanks for posting this!!

I love the So Delicious brand, too. I ate way too much of that in my pre-raw days.
