I have no idea who invented the raw banana ice cream, but he/she is a genius! I tried to check as many posts as possible about it and decided that the oldest one might be the inventor, or may be not, who knows and does it matter? So, I was able to find a youtube video dating from may 2007, a blog post dating from june 2009, frozen bananas ice cream maker (can you believe that!) and a wikipedia article saying that hundreds of years ago the ancient people used to eat frozen fruits for dessert. As for me, I saw it for the first time a couple of days ago at this bulgarian raw food blog. So, finding the truth is up to you if you care and the marvelous taste of the raw banana ice cream to all of us :)
For the past couple of weeks I experimented a lot with frozen fruits, because I wanted to add an ice cream and sorbets to the book I’m writing, so I ended up with combining both of them. A strawberries sorbet & raw banana ice cream, the perfect match for the hot summer days. Are you ready to indulge and be blown away by this easy and decadent raw recipe? It’s 100% raw, vegan, gluten-free, sweetener free and delicious :)
And for everybody interested in gardening, here is how a strawberry is formed…

Then, the leaves fall and a strawberry is formed :)
