Chris's Week Thirteen Recipe: Raw Ice Cream

No, I am not turning into a raw foodie. I saw this recipe on The Happy Herbivore's vegan blog and I couldn't get it out of my head. Maybe it's because I gave up sweets for Lent. Maybe it's because, after a long cold winter, my body is missing some essential vitamins. In any event, I gave this a try today and it was fun!

Raw Ice Cream

Peel, separate into chunks, and freeze

2 very ripe medium-sized bananas

Put the bananas in your food processor or blender and add

1/4 c unsweetened Almond Breeze (or your favorite non-dairy drink of choice)
1/4 t vanilla extract
1/4 t cinnamon

Blend until smooth. (I left a few chunks just for fun, and because I was getting hungry!)

Would I make this recipe again? Yes, ma'am! It's perfect if you're tired of making banana bread with your over-ripe bananas. It's also very good if, like me, you don't really want to buy a full container of ice cream. Oh, and did I mention it's practically fat-free and has no added sugar?


  1. I told Chad about this recipe and when I listed the ingredients he said, "'Almond Breeze'? Isn't that something you put in an air freshener?"

  2. Ok, we made this after dinner this evening and it is quite tasty! I made a small alteration. I used vanilla flavored Almond Breeze and left out the extract. I know I will use the rest of the Almond Breeze for something, but I have a hard time finishing regular nondairy product. Chad even approved! Although, he did follow his praise with "It still isn't ice cream since it uses neither ice nor cream."
