Roasted Banana Coconut Ice Cream (Vegan and Gluten Free!)

The catalyst for this naturally sweetened, vegan, gluten free ice cream (don’t be scared by all the descriptors) is a recipe from Karina’s Kitchen for Maple Roasted Banana Ice Cream. Thanks Karina, your creativity, spunk and inspiration continue to be contagious!

This ice cream is not the easiest to make, given that there are a couple of steps involved, however it’s mighty tasty and my children love it—we hid it from my husband because we wanted more for the 3 of us. And he’s been traveling a ton, so it was easy to keep it a secret.

Instructions

  1. 1Place bananas and dates in a 11-by-7-Inch Pyrex baking dish
  2. 2Drizzle with vanilla and coconut oil
  3. 3Bake at 375° for 35 to 45 minutes, until bananas begin to caramelize and smell fragrant—do not let burn
  4. 4Place banana fixins and coconut milk in vita-mix and puree on highest setting until smooth
  5. 5Place mixture in ice cream maker and freeze according to directions
  6. 6Top with nuts, berries or sprinkles and serve
