Almond Butter-Banana Ice Cream

I’m not much of a sandwich person, but one sammy I do love is almond butter with sliced bananas. This is my “ice creamed” interpretation of that snack. The miracle of “banana soft-serve” is that you can have homemade raw ice cream in mere minutes!


4 frozen very ripe bananas, broken into chunks

1/2 cup almond butter -

2 tablespoons agave nectar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt


Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.

This ice cream is best served immediately, but you can freeze leftovers in an ice cube tray, transferring the cubes to a zip-top bag when frozen solid. To prepare the leftover ice cream, place the frozen ice cream cubes in a food processor, let sit for 5 to 10 minutes to soften just slightly, and pulse or process until smooth and creamy.
