Guilt Free Banana Ice Cream

This post was created in partnership with Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™. I received complimentary products and compensation to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own.

 

Would you believe me if I told you there is way to make delicious yet healthy homemade ice cream that is dairy free with no additional sweeteners or ingredients?

Well, good news! That magical recipe exists and only requires one ingredient:

Frozen bananas!

The Guilt Free Banana Ice Cream!

Banana Ice Cream

The recipe is super easy and simple and only calls for ripe frozen bananas and a good food processor (which is important). 

My tool of choice is the Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™, which features a smart base that transforms into four high-performance appliances: 72 oz. Total Crushing® Blender, 64 oz. Precision Processor™, 24 oz. Single-Serve Cup, and Auto-Spiralizer.

Perfect for pretty much any soup, snack, appetizer, entrée or dessert recipe. There isn't much this multi purpose system can't do thanks to the 12 Smart Programs: Chef-designed automatic recipe creations deliver optimal results every time. Precisely calibrated patterns of pulsing and pausing combined with ideal speed, power and torque for each attachment create everything from fresh salsa and pizza dough to margaritas and decadent ice creams—all it takes is a simple tap.

To get the smooth consistency for the banana ice cream I use the Precision Processor™.

INGREDIENTS:

• 2 Frozen Ripe Bananas

Optional (but highly recommend):
• Add your favorite mix-ins
 * Nuts
 * Fruit
 * Chocolate
 * Spices
 * Nutella
 * Honey
 * Coconut

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Add bananas in the food processor
2. Blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth consistency
3. Add in mix-ins (optional)
4. Pour into a bowl and enjoy immediately as a soft serve! For firmer ice cream, freeze for 1 hour

After the bananas have been blended to reach the desired consistency, add mix-ins to the banana base. The possibilities are endless and you can create different flavor combinations depending on what you're in the mood for. 

For my creation, I added peanut butter powder, chocolate and an assortment of pecans and pumpkin seeds.

For a creamier texture, add coconut milk - although it's not necessary.

I like to top it off with extra mix-in for a crunchy topping.

One feature that you'll be sure to love from the  Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™ is the Intuitive Touchscreen. The sleek, flat screen responds to your touch and lets you select between vessel-specific Smart Programs and manual options. Plus the durable, easy-to-clean screen stands up to everyday kitchen wear and tear.

Another impressive feature is the Smart Vessel Recognition: In a snap, Ninja’s Smart Vessel Recognition Technology automatically senses which vessel is attached to the base and the touchscreen changes to display a customized menu of Smart Programs on the touchscreen, enabling one Smart Base to become four high-performance appliances.

It's no surprise why this multi purpose blender/food processor system is featured in Oprah's 2017 Favorite Things List.
