This delicious Soft Serve Banana Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce from Scratch is the perfect easy, healthy, sweet treat.
I am so in love with this. I cannot believe A. how easy it is and B. how delicious and healthy it is. This Soft Serve Banana Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce is a super healthy soft-serve ice cream option!
The first step- cut up some bananas (a great way to use overripe) and add them to the freezer. No problem, because we always have bananas in this house. Then I decided to make a really simple and delicious strawberry sauce to top it with. Because what's more delicious than bananas and strawberries? Not much. Not much at all.
Plus, look at these beautiful strawberries.
I just tossed them into a small pot and let them simmer away on medium-low with a little bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice and just a touch of honey. I don't think adding more sugar to fruit anything is necessary at all. I let these cook down until nice and soft then I mashed them up until it was as sauce-like as I wanted.
Then I just added the frozen sliced bananas to a food processor and blended them while slowly adding just a little bit of milk as it blended to give it a little added creaminess. And whoa. It's like ice cream without an ice cream maker!
Then to top it off I added just a little of the strawberry sauce…
…and a little more…
...Ok, I added a lot.
I was soooo impressed by how much this satisfied an ice cream craving. We'll now be keeping this in our fridge for when either of us needs a little fix- this is an incredibly healthier and equally delicious alternative!
