- four bananas
- ⅜ cup rice or soy milk
- Take four bananas and make sure that they are ripe. Bananas are ripe and at their sweetest when they are spotty. Peel them and put them in a zip lock bag in the freezer for a few hours until they are completely frozen.
- When frozen, take your bananas out of the bag and cut each one into two or three pieces.
- Put the chopped banana in the blender along with ⅜ cup of rice milk. Water, almond milk, hemp milk, etc. can be used instead. This depends on personal taste preference.
- Use the pulse mode on your blender to start breaking up the bananas. They will not move much in the beginning, but do not get discouraged! This is when you will get your handy dandy spoon and make the magic happen.
- Pulse the blender until the bananas get stuck. Use the spoon to dig in and move everything around a bit. It helps to move the bananas away from the blade as they get stuck. Continue alternating between pulsing and using the spoon. Gradually the texture will change from chunky to smooth.
- Voila! You have transformed an ordinary fruit into luxurious, smooth, goodness! Sprinkle some cinnamon on top and bask in the joy of once again reuniting with your love of ice cream, without the cruelty, for any time of the day!
Tips: Depending if one desires soft serve or hard ice cream, add more or less rice milk. Only put bananas in the blender without rice milk for maximum thickness.
