Roasted Banana Soft Serve

I would rename this stuff Banana Bread Batter Soft Serve. Because that’s exactly what it tastes like. Its pretty amazing and so good for you!

If you read any healthy food blogs, I’m sure you’ve seen this recipe. I love that this version roasts the bananas prior to freezing then whizzing them in the food processor. I always seem to have over ripe bananas in my freezer, so I’m definitely going to be making this again.

I topped mine with some chopped pecans to give it some texture, which I enjoyed. Of course, I also enjoyed it without the pecans. I love how dark it got because of the caramelized bananas. It almost looks like peanut butter!

Roasted Banana Soft Serve

Yield: 1-2

Ingredients:

3 very ripe large bananas

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Peel the bananas and cut into 1-inch pieces. Arrange banana pieces on the prepared baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes.

Remove baking sheet from the oven and allow the roasted bananas to cool completely.

Place cooled roasted banana pieces on a parchment paper-lined plate and freeze until solid. Transfer frozen roasted bananas to a freezer-safe zip-top plastic bag for future use OR proceed to the next step.

When ready to transform the frozen roasted bananas into soft serve, remove the bananas from the freezer and place in a food processor or high-speed blender. Process or blend until the roasted frozen bananas take on a creamy & smooth consistency.

Eat immediately!

    The frosting recipe is missing something. ‘1/4 butter’ ??? Pound or cup? But it sounds great.

    I’ll have to double check the recipe and fix my typo this weekend. Sorry about that. For anyone who asked why they look slushy. This was one of my first Vegan cupcakes and I was using low-fat soy milk. This causes the cupcakes to come out gummy/sticky and not rise very much. I filled them the same amount that I usually do, they just didn’t rise up much. I’d like to try this recipe again to make prettier margarita cupcakes.

    I use non-vegan ingredients and they turn out great as well. Also, I seem to have to double the powdered sugar for the frosting to give it an substance, and then I have way too much frosting 🙂 I also add a bit more lime than the recipe calls for, but that’s just me.
