{Banana Ice Cream}

Kids love ice cream. Okay. Lets be honest, adults love it, too. I love ice cream. But I've been following a pretty strict diet of no dairy, no grains, and little sugar - most of the time, at least.

Banana ice cream was my answer.   Good for kids and me, plus tasty and cold for those hot summer days (or nights) when you're craving something sweet and need to cool down. 

Banana Ice Cream Recipe
3-4 bananas
1 cup frozen berries
3 tbsp homemade berry jam (optional)
1 cup coconut milk or dairy milk

Before you start, cut up 3-4 RIPE (and they must be ripe or it will not taste right) bananas into 1 inch cubes. Place in the freezer to freeze solid. 

Once the bananas are frozen you are ready to make ice cream. 

Add the frozen bananas to a blender or food processor.  Blend until creamy. 

Add your frozen berries and jam. Blend. 

Once everything is blended and creamy, it's ready to eat as soft serve. Or place in freezer to harden. 

I've had it without berries and it's still good.  I'm sure adding cocoa powder would be awesome, too. Lots of variations to try. Have you tried banana ice cream?  What flavorings have you used?
