banana soft ice cream with mango, loquat and dates

This story is pretty short. Throw a few chopped bananas in your freezer in the morning and in the evening treat yourself with some super delicious, healthy, creamy and veeery easy to make ice cream. Or, as some people like to say – nice cream 🙂 No milk, no cream, no eggs. Bursting with flavor thanks to a refreshing combination of fresh fruits and dried dates. If it sounds too healthy for you – add some maple syrup or simple homemade brown sugar syrup to taste. You won’t believe (like I didn’t!) that in a few minutes, from a few fruits you can make such a yummy, cooling dessert. Perfect for a hot day…or any day! It’s pretty hot here, in Portugal, so I needed it. A lot. And I still can’t believe that without all this time consuming churning (like with regular ice cream) it’s possible to make such a treat. All thanks to frozen bananas. There is some kind of magic going on after freezing and blending ripe (with black dots!) bananas. You should try it. You won’t regret it.
