Honey Banana Ice Cream

Honey banana ice cream

Who loves ice cream?

We LOVE ice cream; almost as much as honey. It is definitely one of our top five favorite foods lol. I am not going to lie had some trouble with this recipe, it has taken me quiet a few months to get the consistency just right. I think I finally figured out how to make it work. I have had loads of people ask how to make a dairy free ice cream; so I began playing in the kitchen with a simple way to do it. Lets face it many people are struggling for time and it has been getting harder to make things at home! I did add the chocolate and caramel whipped honeys, so if you want this completely dairy free keep those out. So here is my simple Honey Banana Ice Cream.

Ingredients:

3- ripe medium banana’s

1 cup- Cashew milk

1/4- 1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup- chocolate whipped honey (optional)

1/4 cup- caramel whipped honey (optional)

Directions: 

Unpeel the banana’s and cut them up into 1 inch chunks. Place them in a quart ziplock bag and freeze them over night. Place the frozen banana’s into the blender and start blending. Add 1/2 cup of cashew milk and let blend, add the second 1/2 cup and blend again. Add the 1/4 cup of honey. If you do not use the chocolate or caramel whipped honey or dairy free equivalent; add 1/2 cup of honey.

Tips:

-Add some crunch with adding a TBSP. of peanuts or almonds

-Add 1/4 cup of fresh fruit on top

-Add whip cream

What do you do with honey?

At The Honey Cottage we have heard a lot of questions, but by far our favorite it; what do you do with honey? If you have been in at The Honey Cottage and asked me, you see me get all giddy and excited as I explode with all the ways you can use honey.

Several times Lily has been with me at the shop and was shocked when one kid said they did not like eating honey by itself. As you can imagine, her jaw dropped and she looked at me in shock. I explained to her that some kids don’t know how to use honey.

Lily had an idea idea to start making recipes that are simple, fun, and allow kids to use their imagination with honey! So we are now starting The Honey Cottage for Kids specifically for kid friendly recipes. We hope you are as buzzed as we are!!

This month’s pick is:

Honey Boats

Ingredients:

3 Stalks of celery

2 TBSP-Peanut Butter

1 TBSP-Raw Honey

Toppings:

-Flaked coconut

-Raisins

-Dried Blueberries

-Chocolate chips

-Walnuts

-Honey

Directions:

Cut the celery stalks into 2-3 inch sticks. Stir the peanut butter and the raw honey together. Spread the peanut butter and honey on top of the celery sticks. Stick the flaked coconut on top so it looks like sails. Add raisins, chocolate chips, and walnuts to a couple of sticks. Add blueberries, chocolate chips, and walnuts to another couple of sticks. Finish the remaining sticks with chocolate chips and walnuts (my mom loves this one because it kind of tastes like a candy bar). I like adding a drizzle of honey on top too!

Thanks for buzzing by Lily Bee’s Kitchen!!
