NON-DAIRY STRAWBERRY/ BANANA ICE CREAM

Ingredients (makes about 4 cups)

  • ½ cup (or less) non-dairy milk alternative (coconut, soy, rice, almond, etc)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 or 2 frozen bananas
  • 12 ounces frozen strawberries

 

Directions (these are for a Vitamix, modify for a regular blender…you will need a strong blender!)

Add ingredients to blender in the order listed, keeping the cap of the lid off. Set to frozen dessert setting, turn on, and use the tamper to push the frozen fruit down towards the blades.

If you don’t have a frozen dessert setting, pulse several times to break up the bananas and strawberries, then turn on and run for a few minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the blender.
