No-Churn Almond Banana Chocolate Ice Cream


No ice cream maker needed to make this Ice Cream.Amazingly simple ingredients and easy grind-blend-freeze method ,the ABC ice cream is sumptuous summer treat.The creamy ground raw almonds and caramelized banana mixture freezes perfectly without any crystallization.The chocolate craving is quenched with flavonoid-rich cocoa powder and the semi-sweet chocolate chips.


The raw almonds have more vitamins intact which are otherwise lost in roasting the almonds.Nevertheless the other nutrients like calcium,vitamin E,essential fatty acids and minerals remain unharmed in roasted almonds 1.
Store raw almonds cool in fridge for better flavor and prolonged freshness.For the ice cream one can choose between unsalted raw or roasted ground almonds or unsweetened almond butter.

Recipe : No-Churn Almond Banana Chocolate Ice Cream
Ingredients
1 cup raw almonds
2 very ripe bananas
1 tablespoon virgin pressed coconut oil
2 tablespoon 100% cocoa powder
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk or soy milk
1/2 cup agave nectar or honey
pinch of salt
Semi sweet chocolate chips and raw almonds for garnish.

Method
Peel and slice the bananas.Heat the oil in a saute pan,lay the banana slices in the pan and let cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until caramelized.Cool before blending.

Grind the almonds in a high performance blender like vitamix for 1-2 minutes until finely powdered.Add the milk and the caramelized bananas,sweetener and salt,blend for another minute on high until smooth and creamy.Transfer in a freezer proof container and set in fridge for 4-6 hours until firm and frozen.
To serve,thaw for 15 minutes,scoop out in a store-bought waffle bowl,top with semi sweet chocolate chips and more raw almonds.
