Pineapple Lime Ice Cream

We all like to splurge, especially with ice cream in the summer when its hot. But buying anything made with dairy and refined sugar isn’t splurging at all, its down right wrecking! So if you want to splurge, it pays to just make your own. Doing so isn’t hard. In fact, it doesn’t even require an ice cream maker! All you need is a good blender and some creativity. For raw vegan ice creams, the simpler the better. Pineapple ice cream needs only 3 ingredients, pineapple, bananas, and lime!  So you don’t need to give up on that occasional ice cream splurge to cool off and enjoy your summer. Most importantly, you don’t have to put a pause on health!

Ingredients

  • 5 large frozen bananas, cut 1 inch chunks
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Blend all ingredients until thick and creamy. You may need to spill in a little more lime juice or coconut water if your chunks are too big. Once its completely whipped, refreeze the ice cream for another hour or so for a better texture. Place in the freezer using a bowl with a lid or fill up popsicle molds. My toddler couldn’t wait and wanted an ice cream cone right away! 🙂
