Black Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream!

Here’s What You Need: (Serves one very hungry person)

2 large, extra ripe bananas (read: with lots of brown spots) —  peeled, sliced, and frozen
1.5 cups of frozen, dark sweet cherries, pitted (I buy the private selection label from Kroger – they’re super sweet!
1 frozen strawberry
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup frozen pineapple
1/4 cup frozen mango
15 grapes (not frozen)
1 Tbsp agave or honey (or French Vanilla liquid stevia)

Food processor (here’s the one I use and love) 
zip top bags

Peel and slice two very ripe bananas into coins and place in a ziptop bag. Freeze until solid, at least 4 hours. Preferably overnight. (PRO TIP: I buy bananas in bulk, let them get extra ripe and covered in brown spots, and then slice & freeze a bunch of them in individual baggies. That way, they’re ready to go when I want to make smoothies or nice cream!)

Add the frozen fruit to the food processor, and blitz until they form little pebbles. (Warning — this makes a LOUD noise, and shakes the food processor, so be ready!)

99% of the time, the chopped up fruit pebbles will stick to the side of the food processor, and the blade will have nothing to chop up. It is at this magic point, that you add the grapes to the food processor, and let the food processor pulverize those to grape juice at the bottom.

Then, stop the food processor, and scrape down the sizes, and then keep processing until it comes together and forms a creamy, soft-serve consistency. You’ll need to repeat that step 2 or 3 times, to help the food processor out.

Lastly, drizzle in your sweetener of choice, and process for 30 seconds, to fully incorporate throughout. (Or simply eat as is, it’s certainly sweet enough!)

Friends, there are NO. WORDS. to describe the utterly outrageous flavor party that explodes in your mouth.

I mean, I make a mean bowl of nice cream, on the reg…but BLACK CHERRY?! This was next level delicious!

We’re talking – eyes roll to the back of your head scrumptious!

The consistency is just like the old fashioned creamy, whippy dip ice cream from a scoop shop! It is thick and perfectly creamy.

I love how melty it is, too! You can’t believe it’s made from stinkin’ bananas!!!
