Another hot afternoon means another round of ice cream at our house. We’re all enjoying having a cool, healthy treat on these hot summer afternoons. Today’s flavor of choice? Banana Cardamom. The bananas provide the sweetener, and the nut butter adds a richer mouth feel (as well as some healthy fats) that you wouldn’t otherwise get without adding cream. Here’s how I made it:
Banana Cardamom Ice Cream Recipe
2.5 cups Milk of choice (coconut milk works excellently for this, but dairy or almond milk would also work)
½ cup Almond Butter (peanut butter would also work)
2 teaspoons ground Vanilla Beans
2 teaspoons ground Cardamom
¼ teaspoon Salt
Process Bananas and spices in a food processor or blender until thoroughly combined.
Add milk and process until thoroughly combined.
Add almond butter and process until smooth.
Pour into ice cream maker and freeze until ice cream reaches desired consistency.
Serve and enjoy.
