If you have followed my blog long enough, you know that I love my banana ice creams! You may already be familiar with this Almond Chunky Monkey or Banana Cherry Garcia. The reason I love them so much is because they are so easy to make and you need an ice cream maker.

I make due by blending up bananas with all kinds of fun ingredients using a food processor (a blender would do fine too). They can be served as a soft-serve, or frozen for a few hours and scooped out like ice cream. The best of both worlds. Just blend your ingredients and enjoy now or later. Easy and done!

How To Make Coconut Ginger Banana Ice Cream

Notes

*Canned coconut milk should be chilled before using, store the remaining in the refrigerator for up to a week.

If using shredded coconut, place in food processor/blender and blend until finely shredded or creamy.

Try not to over blend, it will become almost frothy. I personally didn’t care for over blending.

Adjust ingredients to suit your taste.
