Easy. Healthy. DELICIOUS.

Marian Frances White's recipe for banana ice cream—from award-winning cookbook Island Vegan—checks all the boxes, and is just the treat for summer.

*****

 

4 ripe (speckled) bananas

 

Carob sauce:

1 tbsp of carob

2 tbsp water

1 tbsp pure maple syrup.

 

Peel the bananas and place in an air-tight plastic bag. Stick a straw in the corner of the open end of the bag and draw out the air before sealing the bag. Place in freezer for at least 8 hours.

Remove from freezer bags and funnel each banana through a juicer (be sure the blade is set for smooth extraction) into cones. One banana per cone.

Serve as is or dipped in carob sauce.

Carob sauce:

Hand mix the carob with the water until smooth. Add the maple syrup and whisk.

Hint: My old-fashioned Champion juicer makes the best banana ice cream.
