Can you believe that this ice-cream only contains 3-ingredients? It’s so easy to make and ready to serve after leaving in your freezer overnight. As its freezing, the mixture turns from a gooey paste into a creamy ice-creamy, and it’s delicious whether frozen solid or soft. Make sure your kids don’t dig into it before the party!
Bananas are the first ingredient in this recipe. We can over-emphasize the importance of using organic fruit for your ice-cream. Bananas are one of the world’s most abundant fruit crops. As a result, they’re exposed to a vast range of toxic pesticides to prevent insects from destroying the fruit. These toxins run off the leaves of the trees and end up in the soil where the roots absorb them and end up in the bananas.
Organic bananas won’t be as large as commercially grown fruits because they don’t receive the same kind of chemically-enhanced fertilizer as commercial crops. However, organic bananas contain fewer toxins and come packed with vitamins and minerals essential for the health of your family. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, as well as vitamin C and vitamin B. (1)
The second ingredient; milk, is another food product that you need to take special care when purchasing. Commercially produced milk from factory farms is a toxic food. Cow’s on commercial dairy farms are fed a diet of enhanced grain loaded with hormones and antibiotics to prevent outbreaks of disease and increase milk production. The result is milk laden with harmful chemicals. (2)
Organic raw, unpasteurized milk comes from cows fed a diet of grass – their natural food. Organic dairy farmers don’t pump their cows full of hormones or antibiotics. The result is creamy, frothy milk, perfect for ice-cream.
Take all your ingredients and blend them in a food processor until smooth. Pour the mixture into a bread loaf tin and leave it in the freezer overnight. The following day, your family can enjoy a banana ice-cream party after dinner!
