Desserts that showcase fruit as the star of the dish are always a must in our kitchen. In the warmer months, cooking with fruit is a refreshing and light, hydrating and excellent way to celebrate seasonal bounties. What we love most about summer desserts are the flavours carrying you through the season.
Beginning with strawberries, cherries, blueberries and ending in juicy, plump and decadent peaches, fruits are the summer song that is carried through as the star of any summer dish. That includes our Grilled Peaches and Boozy Banana No-Churn Ice Cream.
Each year, when we complete Whole30. The biggest challenge for Philip was giving up sweets. Days into the program his sweet tooth called and resisting the temptation he tried to curb his cravings by eating fruit and nuts. But, unfortunately nothing satisfied him.
One night after concocting recipes in the Vitamix, he found that if you blend frozen bananas with coconut milk you get soft serve ice cream. This was before we new that nice cream was a thing. And while this is considered sex with your pants on, it still abided by the rules of the program and became our go to ice cream recipe. Since completing the Whole30, we reinvented the recipe adding in a few splashes of rye and never looked back.
With the consistency of sorbet, this boozy banana no-churn ice cream is a well balanced scoop with hints of banana, creaminess from the coconut milk, and sweetness from the vanilla complimenting the caramel tones of the rye and maple syrup. The addition of alcohol allows the texture to mimic traditional ice cream when frozen afterwards. It makes it perfect for licking off of a cone, eating it out of a bowl or scooping it on top of grilled peaches. Put the kids to bed because this boozy banana ice cream is a treat strictly for the adults.
