Paleo Hazelnut Banana Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

Two ingredients! That is all this ice cream contains. TWO! In reality, when it comes down to it, you only need one ingredient: frozen bananas. But I had to get all fancy and throw some roasted hazelnuts into the food processor…Oh ya…NO ice cream maker! 


Frozen bananas + whatever you fancy + food processor = soft serve ice cream

If you don’t have a food processor, a blender would also do the job.  This ice cream is basically instantaneous gratification in soft serve form! 


It does take a small amount of forthought…freezing bananas. But seriously…we all have those lingering black bananas that need a home (and not banana bread..again).  I simply chop my spent bananas up into bite-sized pieces, throw them into a baggy, and freeze ’em. 


This past weekend, after I finished a hellacious 10 mile run (IN THE STRONGEST WIND STORM EVER), I ate this hazelnut banana ice cream for my recovery meal. It was the best treat after such a tough run.  I was too hungry to even think or else I would have thrown cocoa into the ice cream too…. next time!
