Vegan 3 Ingredient Maple Walnut Ice Cream

3 Ingredient Ice Cream
Bananas are the secret ingredient in this vegan dessert that requires no cream, sugar or ice cream maker. I didn't think the Coffee Almond Crunch ice cream could be improved upon, but was feeling guilty to have avoided the circuitous route outlined by the originators of this delectable dessert. 

So the blender with the small container was retrieved and I blended the heck out of the frozen banana slices until it liquified, froze it again, stirred the walnuts into it and froze it until it was served. I was expecting it to be creamier because all that air had been blended into it, but to be honest, I think the blender step was redundant. 

Ingredients (makes 1 scoop)

1/2 a large ripe banana, sliced
1/4 tsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. chopped walnuts

  1. Freeze banana slices for 15 minutes.
  2. Take out of freezer and blend bananas with maple syrup until liquid.
  3. Freeze in an airtight container for another 15 minutes.
  4. Take out of freezer and mix in the nuts.
  5. Fold, lifting ice cream from bottom to the top to resemble a scoop.
  6. Transfer to serving dish and freeze again until ready to serve.
Note: I used a seedless banana. If that's not available where you live, make sure to remove the seeds.
