Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Dairy-Free Frozen Banana Spumoni "Ice Cream"

Paleo Spumoni Ice Cream

Are you looking for a dairy-free Paleo dessert?  It doesn't get any more guilt free than this.  

So, this isn't exactly authentic spumoni ice cream, but I'm guessing you already figured that much out.  It's my Paleo take.  Traditional spumoni ice cream has three flavors:   chocolate, cherry, and pistachio with candied fruit/nut in between them.  

My version is strawberry, chocolate and avocado. Yum, yum!  And even better, it's made with only frozen bananas as the base?!  Give it a try, and if you're feeling adventurous - add some dried fruit/nuts to add a little texture.  Hope you enjoy!  --J

Ingredients (2 to 4 servings)
  • 5 medium-sized ripe bananas
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons good quality cocoa powder
  • 1/2 avocado
  • optional: maple syrup
Instructions

Slice bananas into coins. Place in a freezer bag and freeze for at least two hours.

When frozen, separate the frozen banana slices into three equal groups.

Take one third of the bananas and place into a food processor (a small food processor is best). Process until smooth. Add the strawberries and process again until smooth.

Place the strawberry mixture in a small freezer safe container (I use a 6 inch mini pie dish), moving the mixture to one side to make space for the other flavors. Place back in freezer.

Add the next third of bananas into the clean processor. Process until smooth. When smooth, add the cocoa and process again until combined.

Take the dish out of the freezer and if the strawberry has not completely set yet, use a spatula to move the strawberry mixture to the side and put back into the freezer until it is solid enough not to melt into other side. Add the chocolate mixture when the strawberry is set enough. Put back in the freezer.

Add the remaining third of banana slices into the clean processor and process until smooth. Add the avocado. Process again until smooth. Here, you may want to add additional maple syrup to taste.

Take the dish out of the freezer and and scrape any melted cocoa mixture to the side. When set, add the banana-avocado mixture.

Please the dish in the freezer for 2 hours loosely covered with foil. Then it's ready to serve and enjoy.  This is best enjoyed immediately.
