Equipment

  • High speed blender or food processor
  • Freezer-safe container
  • Baking sheet

Ingredients
 

  • 4 medium frozen bananas ($0.64)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks ($1.38)
  • ½ cup full-fat coconut milk ($0.28)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup ($0.30)

Garnishes optional

  • Toasted coconut shreds

Instructions
 

Nice Cream

  • To start, peel and freeze bananas and pineapple chunks (preferably overnight). When they are frozen, add both fruits to a high-speed blender or food processor.
  • Add in coconut milk and maple syrup, and blend on medium-high until you achieve a smooth, soft-serve consistency. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides a few times.
  • After you have a creamy consistency, transfer nice cream to a freezer-safe pan or container (we usually use a loaf pan). Cover nice cream, then freeze for approximately 1-2 hours before eating.
  • If you like a softer consistency, or you're impatient, you can also eat the nice cream immediately.

Coconut Shreds

  • To prepare the coconut shreds, preheat a toaster oven or oven to 200 degrees F. Spread the coconut shreds evenly on a baking sheet, and toast them for 6-8 minutes (or until they start to turn a golden brown).
  • Serve nice cream with toasted coconut shreds on top, or whatever else you can think of!

Notes

  • Optional ingredients are not reflected in the price of the recipe.
  • For increased coconut flavor, add toasted coconut into the food processor before mixing.
  • For best results use a high-speed blender or food processor.
