Ingredients for the strawberry and banana ice cream

  • For this two-ingredient vegan ice cream, or “nice cream,” any type of strawberry will do. Whether they’re frozen and thawed, fresh, overripe, or unwanted, you can use them all.
  • This recipe is great for using overripe bananas. My usual method is to peel black bananas and store them in a silicone bag in the freezer. This way, I always have frozen bananas on hand for smoothies or ice cream.

To create a delicious mixture, simply put your ingredients into the food processor and pulse until they are thoroughly combined. You can also try experimenting with different frozen berries or blueberries for a unique twist.
