How to make vegan ice cream
There is many different ways on how to make vegan ice cream. For this recipe we will use frozen bananas as our base. Generally, Plant based ice cream with frozen bananas is often referred to as nice cream. The basic concept is blending frozen bananas in a high speed blender or food processor until creamy. Creating a healthy and entirely vegan base for soft-serve ice cream!
How to freeze bananas
You can actually freeze bananas in a couple of different ways, depending on your style and needs. Firstly you can stick them into your freezer as is, with the peel on. Once frozen stick under hot water for around 30 seconds and the peel will come off.
Secondly, peel bananas before freezing. To store peeled bananas, use a freezer friendly bag or container. Squeeze the air out of your freezer bad, seal it and stick it into your freezer. Generally I recommend the second way of freezing your banana, along with pre-slicing them as well.
How long does it take for bananas to freeze?
It takes 1 - 2 hours for a banana to freeze. If you properly store them, bananas can be stored up to 3 months in your freezer. Beyond that time they will remain safe for eating, but they may lose some of their flavor.
