Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours or overnight
Equipment: plate or baking pan, knife, measuring spoons, blender
- 2 large ripe bananas (the riper the better)
- 2 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk
- Slice bananas into ¼ inch coins.
- Line a plate or a baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper and distribute the banana slices, making sure none are overlapping.
- Leave to freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Place frozen banana slices and 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk into a high-speed food processor or blender.
- Blend on high for 1 to 2 minutes stopping to scrape the sides every so often.
- If your blender is having a hard time blending the bananas, add more almond milk by the tablespoon.
- Once fully blended, the mixture should have the texture of a super thick smoothie or soft serve.
- Transfer to a bowl or cup.
- Eat as is or mix in any additional toppings.
- Try adding different flavors like cinnamon, pumpkin spice, matcha powder, cocoa powder, or peanut butter powder.
- Optional toppings: sliced almonds, dark chocolate chips, and diced strawberries.
- The almond milk can be switched out for other milks like cashew milk, oat milk, soy milk, or nonfat milk.
- Make sure the bananas are very ripe because the riper they are the sweeter the taste.
- This creamy, icy treat has plenty of potassium and fiber from the bananas and calcium and Vitamin D from the almond milk (make sure it’s fortified)!
- You can buy a bushel of bananas when they are on sale and cut them into coins to keep in the freezer.
