This recipe started out as a really simple, 3 ingredient dairy-free ice cream.
It was tasty, but like most things, is even better with chocolate. If you have an ice cream maker, use it. But I like to play. With food, appliances. I couldn’t stop thinking about using the dryer to make ice cream. Why not?
Chocolate Banana Soft Serve
1 (13.5 oz) can coconut milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Whisk cocoa powder into coconut milk. Add mashed bananas, maple syrup, and pure vanilla extract. Pour into a sturdy 1-gallon plastic bag (or 2 quart-sized bags) and seal. Place bag with ice cream mixture inside another 1-gallon bag with ice cubes and half a cup or so of rock salt. Use fluff setting on dryer to spin for 10 – 15 minutes.
Just a warning – it’s kind of noisy with the ice cubes banging around in the dryer.
