Blended frozen bananas create a perfect texture for raw vegan “ice-cream,” and, when combined with berries, offer an exceptionally healthy treat for hot summer days.

Recipe Servings: 3
Recipe Total Time: 30

Ingredients for ice cream:

  • 6 frozen peeled bananas, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup pineapple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup cherries, pits removed.

To serve:

  • 3 bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 3 cherries
  • 3 tsp unsweetened dry coconut
  • 3 Tbsp raw Spanish peanuts, chopped.

Using a food processor or blender, make 3 types of ice-cream: banana pineapple, banana blueberry and banana cherry. To do this, just combine 2 frozen bananas with the pineapple, and then do the same with 2 frozen bananas and the blueberries, and then with the cherries accordingly. Transfer into separate bowls, cover, and place in the freezer while making the rest of the flavors.

Assemble the banana splits in pint-size jars shortly before serving. Place 3 or 4 tablespoons of each flavor in layers in the jar, separating them with slices of banana. You can slide banana pieces along the glass walls, too, for a different effect. To top the ice-cream off, sprinkle with 1 Tbsp of peanuts, 1 tsp of coconut, and add a cherry. The ice-cream will keep in the refrigerator for about an hour.
