Ingredients
  • 2 cups frozen mashed bananas
  • ½ cup coconut milk beverage (in the carton)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup finely grated carrots (about 1 small)
  • ¼ cup crushed pineapple (drained)
  • ⅛ cup finely chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Add bananas and coconut milk to blender container of a high-speed blender such as a Ninja or a Vita Mix. Pulse a few times then process on high until ingredients are well blended and look like ice cream. If your bananas are frozen very hard, you may have to stop a few times and scrape them down.
  2. Remove blade and stir in remaining ingredients. You may pour the ice cream into a bowl to do this if desired.
  3. The ice cream is now the consistency of soft serve. I suggest putting it in the freezer for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to blend.

Happy Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day!

We have an extra “bonus” blog post today because I just learned today is Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day.  How did I miss that one?  You may know that I come from a family of ice cream lovers with lots of recipes for traditional ice cream as well as banana based “fruit creams.”

So today I decided to share with you my recipe for Carrot Cake Fruit Cream.
