This exceptionally easy to make  “ice cream” is dairy-free, raw and healthy.  It comes out soft, so I like to serve it in a cocktail glass (plastic works, for kids.) You can make it many different ways, experimenting with adding coconut milk, nut butters, chocolate powder, etc… If you don’t want your “ice cream” green, substitute a heaping tablespoon of almond butter for the avocado. Of use a tablespoon of coconut oil. I also like adding coconut shreds to this ice cream. Nut pieces  work and so do raisins. I must have made this dish ten different ways, since trying my first bite of raw ice cream in a raw food restaurant seven years ago.

This dish is also very child-friendly. Your kid can suggest ingredients and put them in the food processor.

Green Raw Ice Cream

3 frozen bananas (peel and freeze them in tupperware.)

1 small ripe avocado

optional: pistachio pieces, mint leaves

Put the frozen bananas and the avocado in the food processor on and let it run for about five minutes. Stop every now and then to scrape it down. The mixture should get very light and soft. Serve immediately. If using pistachios, sprinkle them on top. I like to serve this dish in a cocktail glass with a mint leaf on top.
