Banana Almond Butter Coconut Ice Cream. Sugar Free, Dairy Free, All Paleo

Photobucket

Last year i made homemade summer fruit peppermint frozen yogurt, here: http://wp.me/p29LbV-2z and talked about the mentality of weight loss. Check it out.

Eating good food is something you should enjoy without having to think about anything else but the dish in front of you. Sometimes, that becomes difficult when you are trying so hard to be fit and can’t indulge every time you want to.

This season it will all be about picking your moments. By all means, indulge, eat the crisp lechon skin, gulp down that thick creamy risotto or drink up those sweet cocktails, just don’t do it everyday.

So for those days where you might have some sweet withdrawals and you are about to throw caution in the wind and say, hey, screw you body, try this recipe out.

It LITTERALLY takes 2 mins and it tastes so good! It’s completely dairy free, sugar-free, no additives and can be modified to your hearts desire.

Did i mention that it is 100% paleo? Yes, well only if cavemen had access to food processors or blenders.

Banana Almond Butter Ice Cream

Recipe for 3 (or for 1 ice cream lover, or a person that hasent eaten all day)

the night before, peel and chop 3 sweet bananas, freeze some coconut cream in a full ice rack (we need 5 cubes). The next day, put the 3 bananas, 5 coconut cream ice cubes in a bowl with 1/3 cup of almond milk. Let it thaw for like a minute or so. Put everything in a food processor or a strong blender. Go on high and stop when its nice and smooth. At this point you can either incorporate a tbsp of peanut butter and blend again (or chocolate or honey or anything else you want really). Or just put a scoop in a cup and place some peanut butter on top (1 tsp) with some sel gris (grey sea salt). If you over blended it and it becomes too soft, put it in a flat Tupperware and place in the freezer for at least 40 minutes or until the desired consistency is reached.

You will be AMAZED by how creamy it is and how this is truly ice cream and not just a copy cat.

      I’ve been a long time visitor to your website. But I have to say that this is one of my favorite recipes that you came up with. :) By the way, do you watch some of Chef Jacques Pepin’s cooking shows? Your style of cooking reminds me of him in a great way. :)

      I cannot live without ice cream but I am starting to avoid dairy products and artificial sweetener. This video will surely help me beat my cravings for ice cream. So glad I visited your blog. Continue to inspire people.

      I just made this and it was delicious, thank you. I am sharing on my blog on Monday so more people can see your wonderful easy recipe. One thing you may want to amend in your ingredients list above, you say coconut cream and on the video coconut milk, I used milk but if people do not watch video they may get in a pickle.

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
