self magazine dairy free banana ice creamThis quick and simple ice cream recipe is for those dieting, sensitive to dairy, avoiding a majority of processed foods or just want something   yummy to eat. Banana "Ice-Cream"

  • 4 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Freeze bananas on a single layer of parchment paper at least three hours. I keep peeled bananas frozen for smoothies so I used four of those and though they were not pre-cut, the results were awesome. In a food processor, pulse all the ingredients until the texture of soft serve ice cream and enjoy.

For a more gourmet presentation, mix finely chopped almonds with a little maple syrup and sea salt in a bowl and sprinkle over the banana ice cream. Recipe from the April 2013 Issue of Self Magazine.
