You may be noticing a funfetti theme here. And you know what, I’m not ashamed of it. Who doesn’t love something with bright multi-colored sprinkles in it. But the best part about this recipe is the fact that it is made with bananas. I know what you’re thinking – “Ok, then it must be disgusting. Why would I eat it?” Well, yes, you’re right, it’s not the same as ice cream. BUT it still tastes delicious in its own way (and you can trust me because normally I’m a doubter when people try to make desserts healthy).
Recipe adapted from here.
Ingredients (makes 3-4 servings)
5 frozen bananas (I recommend peeling them, cutting them in half, and then freezing them overnight in a ziplock bag)
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sprinkles, plus more for decorating the top
1. Place the frozen bananas in a food processor and pulse until creamy.
2. Add the vanilla extract, butter, almond extract, maple syrup, and baking soda. Add the sprinkles and pulse just until mixed.
3. If you’re ok with a smooth consistency, serve immediately. If you’d like it to be a bit firmer, place the ice cream in a small tupperware and put it in the freezer until it reaches the desired texture. I sprinkled a few more sprinkles on top when I served it.
