I am so excited to be back here with all of you for Sweet Saturday and even more excited about this super easy recipe for homemade Paleo ice cream. Want to know the best part? You don't even need an ice cream maker!
It's starting to warm up a little here in middle Tennessee, and I always love a cold treat to cool me down under the sun, especially a cool treat that won't make me feel guilty for eating it afterwards. The sweetness from the ripe banana and the tartness of the pineapple go hand in hand to create such a delicious treat!
You can get really creative with these blended fruit ice creams. I have always had a weak stomach for dairy, and I am so glad that now there are so many different forms of dairy-free ice creams that actually taste good! And now that I can make them from home, it reassures me that there won't be any dangerous, hidden ingredients that could upset my stomach.
These Paleo sweet treats that I've been creating for Intersection Coaching are really starting to show me how much we can benefit from removing the sugar and flour in desserts without sacrificing taste. This gets me experimenting more and more in the kitchen, and I love it! Hope you all enjoy this super easy, 3-ingredient ice cream!
3-INGREDIENT PALEO ICE CREAM
SERVES 2-4 PREP TIME: 10 MIN, COOK TIME: N/A
- 2 ripe bananas, frozen
- 2 cups chopped pineapple, frozen
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- In a food processor, blend frozen bananas until creamy. This may take a few minutes of stopping and scraping down the sides. Don't fret -- it will get creamy!
Add frozen pineapple, and blend again until creamy.
Now you can get creative! You can either add in the coconut to the fruit to create some texture, or you can save it to toast and sprinkle on top.
Now after the fruit is nice and creamy, transfer it to a freezer container and freeze for at least an hour to help it firm up again.
Once firm, grab your favorite ice cream scoop and serve!
NOTE: This recipe will make 2 large bowls (about 1.5 cups each) or 4 small bowls. Enjoy!
