Crave a delicious healthy ice-cream? Make this one!

Yes, this lovely healthy ice-cream I created today! I had some ripe frozen bananas & some ripe frozen red currants from our garden last year still in the freezer. I thought why not create this lovely creamy ice-cream?

Yum! Want Some?

So delicious, So creamy,…so healthy too! Made in minutes & if you like it to be a bit more stiff, freeze for about 1 hour into a container in your freezer! Yum yum, I promise! 🙂 Only 4 ingredients! 😉

Recipe: for a whole lot of creamy ice-cream, about + 3/4 cups = + 1750 ml!

Ingredients:

3 medium peeled frozen bananas (355 gr)

1 packet or frozen red currants from the garden from last year (400 gr)

1/4 cup (60 ml) dark agave

a splash or 2 of unsweetened soy milk

Method:

Place all ingredients into your Vitamix. Place fitted lid & tamper on. Blend onto full high-power using tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. This took my Vitamix about 30 seconds and then, on the inside of your Vitamix beker: four mounds should form.

Stop machine. Do not overmix or melting will occur. Serve instantly or place into a fitted container with lid back into the freezer for about 1 hour to firm up a bit! 🙂  Take lovely bowls & scoop ice-cream in it. Eat instantly!! MMMM! You taste the red currants & a hint of sweetness from the agave & bananas!!

After 10 minutes,…

Vegan Gluten-free Cherry Ice-cream with a Secret Ingredient!

Today, I invented this lovely vegan gluten-free cherry ice-cream with a secret ingredient. I know that it is freezing here in Belgium, but I wanted to make a lovely cherry banana ice-cream. This is what I made:

MMM!
MMM!

I made it in 10-15 seconds & then, I froze it for about 1 hour. This photo was taken directly after making it. So, it is in a soft serve stage. 🙂

The soft-serve ice-cream is Vegan, Gluten-Free & Very Delicious too! 🙂

Recipe: For 2 cups ice-cream

Ingredients:

2 peeled medium-sized frozen bananas (I peeled my ripe bananas, broke each one into 2 & froze them together in a plastic bag. I freezed them overnight!)

1 cup + 1/2 cup cleaned, pitted, halved frozen cherries/ A while ago, In Summer, I pitted fresh cherries & halved them & froze them. I needed to use them up.

1/2 teaspoon ground speculaas spices/ How can you make them?

4 tablespoons ground cinnamon, 
1 tablespoon ground cloves, 
1 tablespoon ground ginger, 
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg & 
1 tablespoon ground cardamom. 
 
Mix all the spices well together & place in a fitting bowl & screw the lid well on. Shake well until all joined. Use 1/2 teaspoon.
How to use them up? You can use them in home-made speculaas, in gluten-free egg-free speculaas spiced apple muffins, in waffles, in cookies, in smoothies, etc.

Method:

  1. Place frozen bananas, frozen halved cherries & speculaas spices into your beloved Vitamix. Place fitted lid & tamper in. Turn machine on & turn quickly from number 1 to number 10 & then onto high-speed. Push ingredients into the running blades. Stop from time to time. After about 10-20 seconds, your machine will make another louder noise. Now, your banana ice-cream is ready. It is like soft-serve. Scrape every last bit out of the Vitamix & scoop right away & eat it or place it into a box with fitted lid & place into the freezer for max. 1 hour, to get a more stiffer ice-cream. Scoop out & devour instantly. You can really taste the cherries in here, then a hint of sweetness of the bananas & the lovely speculaas spices too, just right!

Vegan Gluten-free banana ice-creams with Sophie’s twists!

Recently, I have experimented with home-made banana ice-creams! I used a lot of recipes from you-tube & the internet but made this one on my own! 😉

It is really amazing that you can make fabulous banana ice-cream out of 3 large frozen bananas! The flavors, here beautifully combined: rock my taste buds! ooh yes!

Recipe:For 11-12 scoops of banana ice-cream with toasted walnuts, maple syrup, cinnamon & white chocolate chips!

Ingredients:

3 frozen very ripe large bananas if they are not large use 4!  (I peeled my ripe bananas, broke each one into 2 & froze them together in a plastic bag. I freezed them overnight!)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts ( 56 gr), measured when chopped up

1/4 cup vegan white chocolate discs, cut up into smaller pieces, measured when they were discs, not cut up (33 gr) in recipe number 2, use the same amount of vegan dark mini chocolate chips! See picture later on! 🙂

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon maple syrup ( if you use 4 bananas, add 1/2 tablespoon of maple syrup extra!)

Method:

1. First, take a medium non-stick pan & add chopped walnuts. On low heat, toast your nuts until browned on both sides & they must smell amazing! Set aside.

2. Now, place frozen bananas, maple syrup & cinnamon in your Vitamix. Place fitted lid & tamper in. Turn machine on & turn quickly from number 1 to number 10 & then on high-speed. Push your ingredients into the running blades. Stop from time to time. After about 10-20 seconds, your machine will make another louder noise. Now, your banana ice-cream is ready. It is like soft-serve. Scrape every last bit out of the Vitamix & place into a fitted bowl. Now, with help of a spoon, spoon your toasted walnuts & white chocolate pieces through your banana ice-cream. Stir it right through, evenly divided. Place fitted lid on & place into the freezer to turn into a real ice-cream, at least for 5-6 hours. My freezer is set on -18°C! Thaw your ice-cream, 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy! 🙂

Yum!
Yum!

2. Recipe: For 11-12 scoops of ice-cream: Banana ice-cream with maple syrup, toasted walnuts, cinnamon & vegan dark mini chocolate chips! Just the same as above but I use vegan dark chocolate chips instead of the white vegan chocolate discs! Same method as above! 🙂 Enjoy them both! I preferred the one with the dark vegan chocolate chips! YUMMM! Keep obviously in the freezer. It is best made the same day that you want to eat it, otherwise the next day, your banana ice-cream has a more banana flavor & is less interesting & less yummy. So, I made my ice-cream in the early morning & served it after 6-7 hours in the freezer.
