This recipe has led to my rediscovery of my love for ice cream, the reason for this mainly being: ice cream for breakfast is amazing.
Raw Banana Papaya Chia Ice Cream
4 frozen bananas
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 of a large papaya (fresh or frozen)
dried coconut (optional)
I highly suggest peeling the bananas before freezing them, it will make your life a whole lot easier. Freeze them overnight and while your at, it soak those chia seeds in a bowl of water. Chia seeds are one of the exceptions to the 6-8 hr soak time for seeds rule (along with flax seeds), so you could get away with soaking them for only a few hours, but won’t hurt to soak them longer.
To make the ice cream: peel, deseed and cut the papaya, chop your frozen bananas into chunks and put both in the food processor. Add the chia seeds (which will now be more like a chia gel) and combine in the food processor. Done.
If you want to get fancy, garnish with anything you can dream of. Sprinkle on coconut or chopped strawberries!
But seriously, ice cream for breakfast. Holy poop.
