Banana Cashew Ice Cream #Vegan

Hi Guys !!!

Bananas are favorite at my home !

My hubby is a great fan of 'A Banana a Day' ! And so is my littlest one :)

Cashew paste makes 1 of the yummiest treats from India: Kaju Katli.

So I decided to combine the sweetness and creaminess superheroes ;), (shh...eliminate SUGAR), and try this experiment !

On the 'motherly instinct' side...
Did you know, that Bananas provide us with immense digestive benefits by feeding good bacteria in our gut, and provide us with great cardiovascular performance strength.
(Loaded with Vitamin B6, Manganese, Vitamin C, Potassium, copper and Bioton).... 

And Cashews are some of the most potent bone building raw material (phosphorus, magnesium, manganese) and great for immunity too (zinc) we should tap into from time to time !!

So what's the delay ? 
Lets get started with this ultra-simple, fast recipe !!!

Banana Cashew Ice Cream !

Serves: 3

  • 1 medium banana - cut into small chunks and frozen overnight.
  • 3/4th cup soaked cashews.
  • 2 soaked apricots
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste.

1. Grind up the soaked cashews into cashew butter and keep aside.
2. Grind up the frozen banana into a lumpy paste.
3. Combine all other ingredients and blend on high till fluffy and thick paste forms. With consistency not so easy to fall.
4. Put in freezer overnight.
5. Next day, after thawing a little, scoop it out with an ice cream scoop, and serve :)
6. Can use toasted pecans and 
some fruit to garnish and make it pretty :)
