Straw-Nana-Nut Ice Cream

Desserts & TreatsWhitney Carlson11 Comments

We've mentioned one of our favorite apps before, the Whole Foods Market Recipes app...well this is a variation of one of their recipes.  It's a perfect summer treat that you won't feel guilty about eating! 

This recipe calls for a lot of strawberries & if you are like me you get tired of wasting 1/2 the strawberry by cutting off the stem.  I saw this pin on Pinterest about removing the stem with a straw & finally had the chance to try it out...IT WORKS!  It's super easy too.  All you do is insert the straw at the button & push the stem off (see below)!

P.S. Be sure to follow us on Pinterest if you don't already!


  • 2 frozen Bananas
  • 6 oz Organic Strawberries (buy ORGANIC - Strawberries are one of "The Dirty Dozen")
  • 1/2 cup of raw whole Cashews (soaked in water, see below)


1. Soak cashews in warm water at room temperature for 2-12 hours.  Drain cashews once they have been soaked.

2. Dice organic strawberries.

3. Slice frozen bananas into 1/4" slices.

4. Puree strawberries & cashews in a Vitamix until smooth (start at the lowest speed & gradually turn it up to 4).  Add up to a 1/4 cup of water, if needed.  Add bananas & puree again, until very smooth.

5. Freeze in a sealed freezer proof container until just solid, approx 4 hours.
