I read a post on A Beautiful Mess (A blog by Elsie + Emma) about non-dairy ice cream (Link to post). Being lactose intolerant and an ice cream lover, I decided to give it a try. It was fantastic.
So, I tried the chocolate kind. It was good but my sister thought it was too sweet. If you have a sweet issue I would suggest to lessen the brown sugar amount or get rid of it all together.
What you need:
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
2 table spoons of brown sugar (adjust accordingly to your preference)
1/4 cup of water
A blender will be needed as well.
- Chop up bananas and freeze over night. Depending on how cold your freezer is it may take more or less time.
- Once bananas are frozen, take out of freezer and set aside. Add water, cocoa powder, and brown sugar to blender.
- Add frozen bananas to blender.
- Blend until creamy
I have a really small blender so I had to put in the frozen banana pieces in a few at a time. Even then it got too thick for my blender to handle...when I saw small blender I mean very small. This recipe works better if you have a regular sized blender.
When you are finished, your ice cream should look and have the texture of soft served ice cream. It's rather delicious. Thanks to the girls on A Beautiful Mess. For those who don't know about this blog, go check it out.
