This is another post about a method rather than a recipe. It is something I saw on Dr. Kim’s blog. He used frozen bananas to make a pie filling. As soon as I saw it I thought why not just skip the crust and make ice cream. Since we bought a masticating juicer as one of our healthy Christmas presents I knew I wanted to try this. I have been suggesting it to Dan every few days and he was completely uninterested. Today I decided I was making the “banana ice cream” whether he wanted it or not.
Tonight I put the blank plate into the juicer and grabbed the bananas from the freezer. I had frozen very ripe bananas (peeled) in a Ziploc bag weeks ago so that I could make this. I took bananas from the freezer and stuffed them into the chute on the juicer and an unnatural looking extruding mass came out the front of the machine. It wasn’t too appealing looking but I persisted with the entire bag (about 6 bananas). I tried the bananas and to my amazement it was the taste and texture of banana ice cream. The texture was so perfect I could not believe it. I then added a swirl of my homemade cinnamon walnut butter. To say this was good doesn’t do it justice. OMG this was amazing. Even my husband, who is not a banana lover, offered to go to the store for more bananas after a few bites. We didn’t need any bananas, but it was that good that he was willing to trek through the 30 plus inches of snow for bananas.
If you have a masticating juicer you really need to try this. We are both completely besotted by this concoction, as my new friend Laloofah would say. We will be making more of this very soon (as soon as we run out actually). This is absolutely mind blowingly delicious. Laloofah tells me you can make this with frozen bananas and a food processor with a little non-dairy milk if you don't have a masticating juicer.
