PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR COOKING ‘KIT’

You are busy, so these are the steps you can do a day or two in advance to prepare food ahead!  (See the recipe below for more details)

This Banana Ice Cream literally has only 2 ingredients: Frozen Bananas and Almond Milk.  My younger daughter is dairy free, so I used Almond Milk, but you can use any milk you have in your house.  To prep ahead, you do need to slice and freeze the bananas, but that’s really it.  This is easiest to do the night before you make them, but in a pinch, they can usually freeze in just a few hours.

I like to buy lots of bananas…some we can peel and eat and others that I let get really ripened and then slice and freeze for smoothies and this ice cream.

Tip: When you slice the bananas, put them into a plastic freezer bag and then slide the slices around into a single layer.  This prevents the slices from sticking together in a big clump and allows them to blend up much easier in the blender or food processor.

MAKING YOUR BANANA ICE CREAM SANDWICHES:

Once the banana slices are frozen, add 2 cups frozen banana slices to a food processor or blender with 1/2 cup Almond milk (or any milk you have on hand).  Pulse to get the blending started and once you see it starting to come together you can just blend.  If it is still way too thick and not really blending smooth, you can add another tablespoon of milk but be careful not to add too much liquid as you want it to be thick like soft serve ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 2 Bananas
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk Any milk you like
  • 3 Graham Cracker sheets, 4 rectangles each

Instructions

Prep Ahead

  1. Freeze Bananas: Peel and slice the bananas, put them into a plastic freezer bag and then slide the slices around into a single layer. This prevents the slices from sticking together in a big clump and allows them to blend up much easier in the blender or food processor.  They need probably 4 hours, but easiest to freeze them overnight.
