This past summer I officially fell in love with banana soft serve. It is absolutely amazing stuff. Here is a fancy recipe for some. This ice cream has a beautiful fuchsia colour. It is as vibrant in appearance as it is in flavor. —DUZE @BakingBackwards

What You'll Need
  • 5-6 peeled frozen bananas
  • 1 1/2 tbsp organic vanilla extract OR the seeds of one vanilla pod
  • 1 shot vanilla rice milk ( I like Natura rice milk)
  • 1 pinch coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic grounnd cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon organic maple syrup
  • 2 ice cubes of frozen beet juice
  • 1/4 cup organic 100% cocoa powder
  • 1/8 cup poppy seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  1. Buy or juice your own beet juice. Freeze into cubes in a ice cube tray.
  2. Next day: If using vanilla pod, split down the middle and scrape out the seeds into a food processor. Puree first 8 ingredients until silky smooth in a food processor. Add chocolate chips and pulse once to incorporate. If you are feeling adventurous, throw in 1/8 cup of poppy seeds and pulse. Serve immediately for soft-serve like ice cream OR transfer to a large bowl and freeze covered with cling film for hard ice cream texture.
  3. If you are VEGAN and do not consume alcohol, use a vanilla pod instead of extract. I highly recommend including the chocolate chips, especially if you find the beet flavor too overpowering.
