Ingredients:

For the filling:

  • Two to three frozen spotty bananas (the riper the better!)
  • The juice and the zest from two lemons
  • A splash of coconut milk for blending (see directions)
  • Optional: One tbsp. of maple syrup (or to taste)

For the crust:

  • Half of a cup of coconut pulp (see directions)
  • One tbsp. of nut butter (I used a mixture of cashew and pecan butter)
  • Two tbsp. of coconut sugar
  • One tsp. of cinnamon

How to make:

  1. Line an 8×10 baking sheet with parchment paper (don’t worry, you aren’t baking anything)
  2. In a high-speed blender, blend half of a cup of coconut flakes with one cup of water.
  3. Strain the coconut flakes from the liquid.
  4. Mix the strained coconut pulp with the other crust ingredients until fully combined.
  5. Pour the crust into the lined baking sheet and spread it out to form the crust.
  6. Freeze the crust for about 20 minutes, or until the crust has hardened.
  7. Once the crust has hardened, blend the bananas, lemon juice, lemon zest, and a splash of the remaining liquid from the blended coconut flakes in a high speed blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.
  8. Pour the lemonade ice cream onto the crust and spread it evenly over the crust.
  9. Freeze the ice cream bars for about 30 minutes, or until the ice cream has hardened.
  10. Slice into bars.
  11. Enjoy!
