This is so good I coulda died the first time I tried it, since I was really pining for some icecream.

1-2 bananas, chopped and frozen
1-2 tbs shredded coconut
1/4 Cup (chocolate, vanilla, plain) soymilk
1-2 tbs cocoa

Put all ingredients into a food processor, process until smooth, serve and eat immediately. Or you can put it back in the freezer to harden up a bit.

Very low calorie, low fat, and REALLY yummy! [Big Grin]

ahh, thank you. I've needed something like this. I've put on a nice 15 pounds, but am very weak when it comes to ice cream so I can't seem to shift it.

Skim milk will substitute properly for soy milk. If you use non-skim milk, the butterfat will seperate as it starts to freeze. The higher the fat content, the nastier the result of the seperation.

Probably not the best idea but not as bad as using milk straight from the water buffalo

Not to mention you'd have to milk a water buffalo...

Ever had raw milk? That stuff is *good*.

Why does the water buffalo have the lowest amount of water in its milk? j/k

yeah raw milk is good - it has a different taste to it then regular store bought milk.

one could argue that raw milk is regular milk. The store bought stuff is processed and pasteurized and homogenized...

well the definition of raw is

natural: (used especially of commodities) being unprocessed or manufactured using only simple or minimal processes; "natural yogurt"; "natural produce"; "raw wool"; "raw sugar"; "bales of rude cotton"

so raw milk is the correct term.

The term regular milk could be confusing. Its like saying regular data is like raw data - well we all know what raw data is but what makes a piece of data regular? what does it need to have?

I tried making ice cream the "old fashion" way by placing cream, vanilla and sugar in a bowl, then placing that bowl into a larger one with crushed ice and salt (pickling salt works the best). Shake like crazy, and presto - ice cream! This is a lot of work, and you may find your arms too sore to lift a spoon!

Your recipe is much easier. I have all the reagents at home. so I am going to try it tonight! Thanks!

That's why I pointed it out. You called store milk regular milk. Regular is subjective.

At risk of turning this thread into a Herbivore vs Carnivore arguement, I'd like to promote the non-dairyness of this lovely dessert. [Beard of Peter Gabriel!] Since ridding my diet of animal products, icecream in the summer is a real temptation, and this makes that temptation a thing of the past. Which is so cool I could scream... for icecream. [Razz]

PS, try the soymilk, it won't kill ya. [Big Grin]

It would actually kill my friend Faith. She's allergic to something in soymilk and it causes the classic throat swelling shut problems. Raw carrots also do that to her.

Yay for EpiPens!

What if you are allergic to coconut? Can you substitute something else?

Great recipe Nitro. I have a dairy allergy so lactose-free milk or soymilk works great for me.

We have a lactose intolerant friend, this will be nice when she comes over. Of course, we should do a trial run first. Maybe two. Maybe more. Until we get it right. You know how it is.

It would probably be good with toasted almonds in it too.

You can also substitute pineapple juice for some/all of the liquid and the result has quite a tasty pina colada sort of flavor to it.

Pineapple juice with cocoa though? That sounds...odd.
