Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • ¾ cup roasted hazelnuts (and/or almonds, pistachios)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ tablespoon agave or maple syrup or 1 medjool date
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Peel and slice the bananas and put them in a freezing bag or container. Put in the freezer overnight or until they are frozen (minimum 4 hours).

There are two ways to make the ice cream

  • 1) with the nuts mixed in with ice cream.
  • 2) or to crush them and sprinkle them over.

To make the ice cream

  • remove the frozen bananas from the freezer and put them in a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse. Every now and then scrape down the sides with a spatula. Pulse until the mixture has the texture of a soft-serve ice cream. Put the ice cream in a container and freeze up to two weeks.

Notes

To toast the hazelnuts, simply put them on a baking tray in a 300°F preheated oven for 5 minutes or put them in a skillet over low heat. Let them cool then peel them by rubbing handfuls of them with your hands.
