reblogged from fussybellygoesvegan:

Okay, for the record this kinda melted a little by the time I took the photo, but here is another variation of my homemade vegan ice cream! After I posted about having (vegan) ice cream in my life again, a fellow foodie and friend on facebook said have you ever tried making ice cream from a frozen banana? I said I have not and please go on. She then posted a link that explained how bananas when frozen and then mashed up in a blender, become a creamy ice cream-worthy texture. In my excitement, I didn’t read the article fully and correctly, but even then my vegan ice cream came out rather delicious. Adding frozen bananas do make things more creamy. I think for future batches, I wouldn’t use a whole banana, but a half of a banana instead. For me, it was too creamy but that’s just me. When I originally tried to mash up the frozen bananas, my blender only got so far but I then realized I would need to add some more fruit so it could be mashed up better. (Either that or work with a lot more bananas, and considering this was a test batch, I went with more fruit.) I added some frozen strawberries and peaches and it was pretty delicious. There was a slight aftertaste which I also think wouldn’t be present if only a half of a banana was used. TIP: Mixing in a bit of unsweetened shredded coconut to your smoothies makes it richer and tastier! Extra delicious with strawberries, apples and peach smoothies! TIP: To make it more smoothie-ish, just add more waterSome notes: Go easy on the cherries. Having had too much success with kiwis but otherwise, knock yourself out. I’ve been experimenting with (frozen) blueberries, cherries, mango, peaches, and strawberries. I’ve also mixed fresh fruit (pineapple and apples) with the frozen fruit which was also rather lovely. The variations are plentiful and delicious!
