Ingredients
  • 2cups coconut cream
  • 1 1/2cups avocado
  • 3 large bananas(anywhere from green-tipped to overripe depending on sweetness desired)
  • 1/4cup coconut oil(refined unless you loooove coconut flavor)
  • 1tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4tsp sea salt
  • 1-4tbsp maple syrup(honey, sugar or other sweetener, optional)
  • 2-5 tbsp cocoa powder(optional for chocolate flavor)
Instructions
  1. ICE CREAM MAKER METHOD:
  2. In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until completely combined.
  3. Quickly add softened or melted coconut oil and blend until fully incorporated, If possible, do this through the hole in the lid while the blender is on:
  4. Put in ice cream maker as directed by manufacturer. If 5 cups is too much for your ice cream maker, do this in two batches.
  5. For the model we have (link above) this amount works just fine and takes anywhere from 10-30 minutes to get to the right consistency, depending on how warm the mixture got in the Vitamix.
  6. If you prefer, chill the mixture before adding to the ice cream maker if it warms up during blending.
Recipe Notes

FOOD PROCESSOR METHOD: Slice and freeze bananas on a baking sheet (optionally lined with plastic wrap or wax paper to help prevent sticking) Blend or food process all other ingredients, saving the coconut oil for last and adding while blender is on if possible. Ensure that the oil incorporates thoroughly and chill mixture in the fridge. When bananas are frozen, add them to the food processor and pulse several times to chop them, add mixture of remaining ingredients and food process until it turns into a lovely ice cream consistency.
