It’s summertime, and while it’s not quite blueberry season around here just yet, that sticky hot quick-where’s-the-nicecream feeling is in the air — which means those blueberries are just around the corner! Blueberries and basil have always been one of my all-time favorite flavor pairings (well basil + fruit in general, to be honest), so it’s not surprising this combo made its way into my nice creams as well last year.
This little treat is super easy to make, and you end up with a delicious, fruit-sweetened, raw instant ice cream. It makes a beautiful breakfast, snack, or dessert — basically, the stuff daily routines are made of :)
- 2 frozen ripe bananas
- 1 cup blueberries
- a small handful of fresh basil leaves
- optional: a tsp of maple syrup if your blueberries are not very sweet
- Blend all ingredients together in a power blender into an ice cream consistency and enjoy! (Use the tamper if your blender comes with one to help with blending).
