Senior Culinary Producer Jeanette Donnarumma uses a food processor to churn out a healthy and dairy-free sub for ice cream.
- 3 bananas, thinly sliced and frozen
- 1 avocado, diced
- ½ cup toasted pistachios, chopped, divided
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- Pinch salt
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
Add frozen bananas, avocado, half the pistachios, the almond extract, and salt to a food processor bowl. Pulse and begin to combine the ingredients. While pulsing, stream in maple syrup so ingredients begin to “churn;” add a splash of water, if needed, to get the bananas moving. Continue to pulse until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately in bowls topped with remaining pistachios.
