This is one of my favorite desserts to make for Tristan. He LOVES it. It’s perfect for summer and SO easy as you only need a blender. No ice cream maker needed. It’s vegan and oh so clean using only 4 natural ingredients.
A few notes…this is best enjoyed immediately or with in a day or so. If it sits in the freezer for longer than about two days it can get icy so be sure to put it out about an hour or so before you serve. Or just enjoy as more of an iced dessert. Another amazing option is to make these into popsicles using molds. I very highly recommend this option as well!
Makes about 1 quart of ice cream
- 1 ripe banana
- 3 cups of frozen watermelon, cubed
- 3/4 cup of canned full fat coconut milk
- Tablespoon organic maple syrup (this is optional but I recommend it for extra sweetness and creaminess… the sugars help with this)
Blend all of the ingredients above in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately! You can also freeze in popsicle molds or pint/quart containers. As another fun option I’m looking forward to exploring, you can sub the watermelon for any fruit. Tristan has requested blueberry + lime…😆
