A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get a good deal on a Champion Juicer from Craigslist. Ever since then I’ve been excited to create banana “ice cream” with it. I’d seen this done at our co-op a couple of years ago but that was the only reference I had. So I got some banana’s and go to work.
This really is the simplest thing ever. I peeled, broke in half and put in a plastic freezer bag several bananas and put them in the freezer overnight.
Once they were frozen solid it was time to make the “ice cream”. To prepare the juicer I put in the plate in the bottom of the juicer that diverts everything out the end, as opposed to the screen that lets the juice out. Next I slowly fed the frozen banana halves one at a time into the juicer. It took a minute or so but then amazing frozen banana goodness started coming out of the end, it looked like a soft serve machine!
The seven bananas that I froze made enough of this amazing tree to feed four adults and two kids.
If you’re looking for a great dairy free frozen treat this is it! This should work with other types of masticating juicers but it definitely works with a Champion . I have also heard rumors that you can do the same in a food processor but that’s another post.
