Banana Soft Serve

Yields 2 -4 servings
Author Doris Fin


  • 4 ripe bananas frozen
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
  • 4 tablespoons nut milk almond/Brazil or water


  • For a chocolate version add 1 tablespoon raw fair trade cacao powder


  • 1 tablespoon unsulphured unsweetened, dried coconut shreds
  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc.
  • Cacao powder


  1. Combine banana, vanilla, nut milk or water, and cacao if using, in a food processor or powerful blender with a tamper, until smooth and creamy like ice cream. Scrape the sides the food processor blender bowl so that all the banana is puréed.
  2. When the mixture reaches the consistency of soft-serve ice cream, scoop into serving dishes and sprinkle, if you like, with coconut, nuts, or a bit more cacao powder.
  3. Variation: 
 Make a sundae with the addition of a drizzle of maple syrup or chocolate syrup. (Cè Organics makes a delicious one with fair trade ingredients.) Or drizzle with a nice brandy for a sophisticated grown-up dessert.
