Strawberry Banana “Ice Cream”

Have you made Mock Ice Cream from Bananas yet? If you haven’t, then YOU ARE MISSING OUT! I am telling you – this is magical! Frozen bananas whip up in the food processor to make a dairy-free, delicious, & healthy “Ice Cream” treat! Happy Healthy Faux-Cream…

Chocolate Chips on Strawberry-Banana Faux Ice Cream

By taking any banana when it is nice and ripe and throwing it in a food processor for a few minutes you can make an absolutely delicious fake ice-cream. If you are not a fan of bananas, you can still enjoy this treat because something about this freezing and whipping process makes the banana flavor almost disappear! You can even make your favorite flavors by just tossing it in toward the end of the whipping process (chocolate powder, nutella, or peanut butter are some of my favorite additions).

STRAWBERRY-Banana Faux Cream

After Strawberry Picking last week, I decided to whip up (literally) some Strawberry-Banana Frozen Whip. I always have banana chunks in the freezer (perfect for making this type of frozen treat, or baking, or a nice cool sweet healthy treat whenever you want) so all I needed to do was freeze some strawberries (I didn’t cut mine in half, I would suggest that to you). You are just freeze-time away from making this delicious frozen delight yourself! Some perfect toppings for this Strawberry-Banana Mock Cream would be a drizzle of good honey, mini-chocolate chips, or chocolate syrup!

Strawberry Banana “Ice Cream” — 8 Comments

    • Thanks so much Jen – I just love how banana (especially frozen ones) can make anything seem so rich and decadent, even if it is not!!

  1. You know the kind – the shiny, modern little shops that have popped up all over the place in the last few years. They lure you in with their self-serve stations and their topping bars loaded with oodles of tempting bites, and before you know it, you’ve got yourself a problem. {And a $10 cup of yogurt.} Anyway, it all started out quite innocently. A new fro-yo place opened up last year in our neighborhood, so we decided to check it out. As much as I love food in general, I’m pretty boring when it comes to frozen treats – single flavor, no toppings, just plain ol’ tart-yet-creamy frozen yogurt deliciousness. Steve, on the other hand, gets pretty interesting with his add-ons: Gummy Bears. Granola. Nuts. Sometimes independent of each other, and sometimes all in the same serving. {Shudder.} But the beauty about this yogurt utopia was that there was something for everyone.

  2. On a hot summer day, nothing beats a cool and refreshing frozen treat. Whether you have an affinity for ice cream or if your heart belongs to the almighty popsicle, we are joined together for our love of frozen desserts. Thanks to our genius bloggers, it has become easier than ever to create homemade popsicles, homemade ice cream, and homemade frozen yogurt.
