Lemon Poppy Seed Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce ~ Raw Vegan Recipe

serves 2 ~ $1.10 per serving

  • 4 bananas, sliced and frozen ($.60)
  • juice and zest of one lemon ($.69)
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds ($.30)
  • 1 cup strawberries ($.45)
  • 1 tablespoon agave ($.10)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts ($.15)
  • pinch salt

Banana ice cream is wonderful.  And it's amazingly simple to make with just a food processor.

The strawberry sauce should be made first and set aside. In a bullet type blender, puree the strawberries and agave until very smooth.

In a food processor fitted with an "S" blade, process the frozen bananas and lemon juice and zest until creamy like soft serve ice cream. It can take a bit of prodding and scraping to get the bananas going in the food processor, but it's worth it. Once creamy, add the poppy seeds and give a whir or two to incorporate.

Serve with the strawberry sauce and walnuts.

  1. Oh yum! I might have to make this into a smoothie for that smoothie challenge I've been doing.

  2. Had this for breakfast this morning! Mmmmmm!

  3. Just made banana ice cream for the first time ever in my Vita Mix. I can't believe how much like soft serve it was! And I LOVE lemon poppy seed anything! Even my junk-food-junkie Sweetheart asked for a second bite and said how good it was! I can't wait for your book to come out! Trying your avocado soup for lunch tomorrow.
