Pineapple Banana Nice Cream

Welcome back and happy Monday everyone.  Can you believe its June 1st already?  Is it me, or does the time seem to be racing ahead since this year started?  It feels like we just got over the Christmas holidays and now we are halfway through the year already.  

Well, I welcome June and the start of the summer season although my personal favorite is spring.  It’s not too hot or cold, and it brings rebirth and rejuvenation to not only the environment, but with ourselves and the foods we eat.  

This pineapple banana nice cream fits right in for the coming summer months.  Its cold, refreshing, healthy and it easily satisfies those pesky sweet cravings.  In addition this wonderful snack or dessert really packs in a healthy dose of vitamin C, B6, B1, manganese, potassium and fiber helping you to meet your daily recommended dose of fiber, vitamins and minerals.  

This pineapple banana nice cream is creamy, sweet and delicious without the extra oils, sugars, dairy and artificial flavors often found in regular ice cream.  It is vegan, gluten and grain-free and it is great for those of us who are lactose intolerant and unable to enjoy regular ice cream.  So let’s put this nice cream together.

In a food processor or blender break bananas into chunks if they were frozen whole and add the chunks of pineapple.  Next add the cinnamon, liqueur and agave sweetener. I use the Organic Blue Agave  which is a low glycemic sweetener.  

Low glycemic sweeteners are slowly absorbed by the body to prevent spikes in blood sugar and are perfect for diabetics or anyone watching their intake of sugar.  The agave can however be left out if you are trying to avoid that extra sweetness.  

Process until mixture has the texture of soft serve ice cream.  If it is too difficult to process at first, allow the fruits to melt a bit or add a small amount of your favorite nut milk or water. Stop periodically to scrape down the sides as needed.

Scoop into your favorite ice cream bowl or cup and enjoy.
