My kids never tire of banana ice cream. Which is good. Banana Ice Cream is easy and versatile. And I have a huge crush on recipes that are easy and versatile.
I also love that I don’t have to turn on my oven for this dessert.
Here is my beloved food processor. I seriously put this baby to work!
For your rainbow ice cream, simply combine one frozen banana to one cup of colorful frozen fruit or a handful of fresh spinach.
My new favorite is the mango. It’s the lovely orange hue above.
During the day my preschoolers devoured dainty scoops of each color.
For the after school crowd, I simply layered the colors in a glass, topped with a strawberry, and covered with plastic wrap in the freezer.
They thawed beautifully and everyone loved guessing which fruit made each color. Success!
A perfect healthy treat for a Saint Patrick's Day celebration or just because. Try different fruits to make different hues.
- 5 Frozen Bananas
- Red: 1 Cup Strawberries, Frozen
- Orange: 1 Cup Mango dices, Frozen
- Yellow: 1 Cup Pineapple, Frozen
- Green: 1 Handful Spinach, Raw
- Purple: 1 Cup Blueberries, Frozen
- Toppings: Whipped Cream or fresh fruit
- Have all of your ingredients measured and on a large cutting board so you can work quickly. Combine one frozen banana with the strawberries and blend until creamy. You may need to scrape down the sides once. When it looks uniformly smooth, transfer into a bowl. Rinse out the bowl of your food processor and work through each of the colors.
- Immediately invite your crew to sample and build their rainbow sundae. You can also cover and freeze until you're ready to use.
