Vegan Fruity Ice Cream With Coconut & Almond

Warning: This May Be Hard To Share!
Cherries, bananas, coconuts, and almonds, oh my!
More ice cream smorgasbord.
Only the third try at making this homemade hot day dessert and I do believe someone's becoming mightily addicted...


1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen cherries
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lime
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 teaspoon ginger

Only 7 ingredients for this summer treat.
Squeezing in the lime juice.
This is gonna be a chunky one!
Top with additional coconut flakes and almonds if desired.
Nom. Nom. Nom.
Very incredible flavors cheering the tongue here, mostly sweet cherries (w/ a few surprising chunks! Yay!) with the flaky coconut and crisp almond textures. Banana almost absent (which I wanted!). Getting pretty good at mimicking the texture of ice cream now, I'm almost at the advanced stage of crafting it.
Just need to iron out a few crinks. ;)
Can you believe it?
I actually shared my little bowl of yum and had only 1 complaint- it's tooooo cold! Sheesh. Didn't know that ice cream wasn't supposed to be cold. Hahaha!
Definitely had a fan though. :)
I'm having a ball and am certainly not done experimenting. Summer is not yet over. Plus there's cantaloupe in my fridge. And grapes. A sorbet for tomorrow? Hmmm....
