In true Canadian fashion, we’ve gone from winter-like weather to sunny summer skies in just a matter of days. I’m not complaining, of course, but I feel a little ill prepared for feeding my family accordingly. Or I did, until I remembered reading about the frozen-banana-ice-cream craze that seems to be popping up everywhere.
Are you familiar with it? Essentially, you can create a crave-worthy warm-weather snack by placing frozen banana pieces in your food processor and jazzing them up with almond milk, natural peanut butter, a little chopped chocolate and pure maple syrup for added sweetness. Within minutes you’re left with a healthy, soft-serve style ice cream that’s dairy-free, gluten-free, and perfect for after-school snacking.
If soft ice cream isn’t to your liking, you can transfer the processed bananas to a lidded freezer-safe container, and tuck in the freezer until it reaches the desired texture. I find that after an hour or so I can easily scoop it into bowls and serve it to the sweaty kids walking in the door after school.
What is your go-to warm weather snack? Do you ever make ice cream at home?
