Almond ice cream

Summer.
Heatwave.
It’s-just-so-freaking-hot.
Whatever you would like to call this summer, apart from the fact that fucking climate change is real, it calls for sweetness that can cool you down. And I found this quick and easy ice cream when searching for more summer recipes ideas. This recipe by beaminbaker.com can be mixed within 5 minutes. Prep the whole batch in the evening, pop into the freezer and the next day you have delicious home made ice cream. Recipes like this call for extremely ripe bananas. ‘Cause when using bananas like that you can skip the extra sugar (maple syrup), the mixture will become sweet enough thanks to the bananas and coconut cream. Add other or extra nuts if preferred. Enjoy your sunny Thursday 😃☀️☀️!!
