It is pretty simple, just add pineapple and mashed bananas to the basic ice cream recipe.
We invited a friend over to enjoy Brazilian Black Bean Stew for dinner and thought that something tropical would be a nice accompaniment.
It is a pretty simple and tasty recipe, but a little shredded coconut would have added a nice flavor to it.
- 1 cup non-dairy milk, divided (almond milk is our favorite)
- 2 Tablespoons arrowroot powder
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 ripe bananas (mashed)
- 1 cup crushed pineapple
In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup (60 ml) non-dairy milk with arrowroot powder, and set aside.
Mix coconut milk, remaining 3/4 cup (175 ml) non-dairy milk and sugar in a sauce pan over low heat. (add cocoa powder or any other ingredients for desired flavor) Stir slowly until sugar is dissolved. When it starts to boil, remove from heat immediately and add the arrowroot mixture. The liquid should thicken. Next, add vanilla extract, pineapple and banana.
Refrigerate mixture until chilled, approximately 1 to 2 hours. Add to your ice cream maker and follow instructions for your machine.
