Do you know how creamy bananas can be when frozen? The consistency is amazing. Years ago I would slice, freeze, and then snack on frozen bananas. Until I discovered this dessert. Gone are the days of my sucking on frozen sliced bananas. This dessert is amazing. A satisfying, dairy free soft serve from a banana base. I discovered this on a blog that I follow called, Choosing Raw. http://www.choosingraw.com. Since then I have made 1,000,001 variations of this. Chocolate soft serve, peanut butter soft serve, pumpkin peanut butter soft serve…. All with the frozen banana base, and a couple of add-on ingredients. The possibilities are endless. You just have to be willing to dust off your food processor.
For today: Blueberry Soft Serve.
About the ingredients
- The bananas– DO NOT THROW OUT THOSE OLD BANANAS! I never waste bananas in this house. Brown bananas need love too. Honestly, the most ripe bananas are the sweetest, am I right? Slice them up, freeze in a freezer bag and keep them on hand for smoothies, and this yummy soft serve recipe.
- The blueberries– Do you keep frozen berries in your freezer? full-time? Give them a home, in your freezer, permanently. Not just for summer!
- Truvia– Optional healthy sweetener. Toss your Splenda, this is a better choice.
On to the recipe:
Blueberry banana soft serve
(makes 2-4 servings…how hungry are ya?)
3 frozen bananas (sliced and peeled beforehand)
1 cup frozen blueberries
3-4 tablespoons milk (I use almond milk to keep it dairy free)
1-2 packets Truvia (optional…depends on your need for sweets!)
Toss all ingredients into your food processor. Process until desired consistency, scraping the bowl down as needed.
A few Sundays ago we even had soft serve for our family breakfast. Living on the edge.
