Because I had an aging butternut squash and didn’t know what to do with it!
Butternut Squash Banana Ice Cream
(Makes just under one quart of ice cream.)
Ingredients
2 cups roasted butternut squash (about 1/3 of a squash) 4-5 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen sugar to taste (optional) a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer, if needed 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions
1. To roast the squash, cut it in half lengthwise. Place it on a large baking sheet, flesh-side up, and bake at 400F for about 30 minutes, or until the insides are soft and tender. Set aside and allow to cool.
2. When cooled, peel the skin off the squash and dice into 1/2″ pieces. Put two cups of diced squash in a food processor and pulse until smoothly blended. Add a little soy milk if necessary.
3. Next, add the bananas and pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl.
Alternately, you can allow the bananas to defrost on the counter top for 30 to 60 minutes beforehand, so that they’re easier to work with. Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a butter knife.
Note: Since introducing extra liquids (such as non-dairy milk) into the mix results in a slightly icier finished product, I prefer defrosting to non-dairy milk. If you’re in a hurry, pop the bananas in the microwave for 20 to 45 seconds instead.
4. If the bananas aren’t sweet enough for your taste (sometimes this happens if you freeze them before they’re sufficiently ripe), add a bit of sugar to taste. Any sugar works fine – white, brown, etc. – but I find that powdered sugar results in a smoother blend.
5. Add the cinnamon and pulse until blended.
6. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container. Enjoy immediately as soft serve, or pop the ice cream in the freezer for an hour+ for a firmer dessert. Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, microwave it for ten seconds to help loosen it up (or let the container sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to eating, depending on room temp).

Came up with this one when I tried to make coconut milk whipped cream - but forgot to separate the solids from the liquid and just ended up with an open can of coconut milk that I had to use asap!
Chocolate Coconut Crunch Ice Cream
Ingredients
1 15 ounce can (1 1/2 cups) coconut milk 1 cup soy milk, divided 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder 1/3 cup sugar 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup chocolate chips 1 cup shredded coconut + extra as needed
Directions
1. In a small mug, combine 1/4 cup of the soy milk with the arrowroot powder. Whisk well and set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan, combine the coconut milk, remaining soy milk, sugar, and coconut powder; mix well. Heat on medium-high, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat and add the arrowroot slurry immediately, whisking well. This should cause the milk to thicken noticeably.
3. Cover and transfer to a fridge to chill for six to eight hours or, better yet, overnight.
4. Next, make the “crunch”! Place the chocolate chips in a glass bowl. Cook for 90 seconds in the microwave, pausing to stir the chocolate every 30 seconds. When done, spoon the chocolate out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spreading it as thin as possible. Sprinkle the coconut shreds on top, pressing down gently with a spatula or spoon. Put the baking sheet in a freezer to chill for about an hour. When cold and hard, break the sheet of chocolate into bite-sized pieces using your hands or a knife. Store in a sealed container in the fridge or freezer until ready for use.
5. To make the ice cream, process the batter according to your ice cream machine’s directions. You can add the chocolate chunks to the batter prior putting it in the ice cream machine, if that’s easier for you, or as you dispense (or scoop) the frozen ice cream from the machine. Depending on how chunky you like your ice cream, you may have a handful of chocolate-coconut bark left over; these are great on a sundae, or just for snacking!
6. Enjoy immediately or pop it in the freezer for a firmer dessert!

Ice cream season has officially begun at my place!
Vanilla Blueberry Swirl Ice Cream
(Makes about a quart of ice cream.)
Ingredients
1 cup vanilla soy milk, divided 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder 2 cups vanilla soy creamer 3/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozenn 3 tablespoons sugar a splash of lemon juice
Directions
1. In a small bowl or mug, combine 1/4 cup of the nondairy milk with the arrowroot powder. Whisk briskly and set aside.
2. In a saucepan, combine the remaining 3/4 cup of nondairy milk with the soy creamer and sugar. Bring to a slow boil on medium-high heat. Stir well and often.
3. Once the mix begins to boil, remove from heat immediately. Add the arrowroot “slurry” and mix well. This will cause the batter to thicken noticeably. Add the vanilla extract and mix well. Chill in the fridge for four to six hours or more. (Usually I prefer to let the batter chill overnight.)
4. Now make the blueberries! In a medium saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the berries burst, the juices begin to cook down, and the berries thicken. Remove from heat and chill in the fridge along with the ice cream batter.
Optional: For a smoother, not-quite-so-chunky ice cream, blend the blueberries in a food process or blender prior to chilling.
5. When you’re ready to make the ice cream, process according to your ice cream machine’s instructions.
You can add the blueberries to the batter:
a. before transferring it to the ice cream machine, which will result in a blueberry flavored ice cream of somewhat uniform color and taste.
b. towards the end of the ice cream machine cycle, which will result in a vanilla ice cream with swirls of blueberry jam.
c. after the batter is done freezing and as you transfer the ice cream to a storage container. Just combine one with the other, stirring gently, until you achieve a swirl effect.
6. Enjoy immediately as soft serve or transfer to the freezer for a firmer ice cream.

So I made a thing. Seasonal, and lazy!
Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Soft Serve
(Makes just under one quart of ice cream.)
Ingredients
4-5 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen 2 tablespoons cocoa powder 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice mix sugar to taste (optional) a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer, if needed
Directions
1. Put the bananas in the food processor and pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl. If necessary, add a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer to get things moving!

The last batch of strawberries was kind of sketchy (probably the last of the season! waaaaaa!), so I tossed them in a saucepan along with some frozen blueberries and a little lemon juice to make berry sauce. Served on top of a bowl full of vanilla Trader Joe’s Soy Creamy ice cream, with just a dash of powdered sugar. Mind numbingly good.

Over on my personal blog, I’m doing an alphabet theme for VeganMoFo. Naturally the first thing I made was ice cream - specifically, Apple Pie Ice Cream, with a banana base, so no ice cream machine required. Yay!

It’s awesome on its own, but doubly so when topped with fresh apples, cinnamon, and a handful of Apple Cinnamon Granola.

Apple Pie Ice Cream

(Makes about a quart of ice cream.)

Ingredients

4 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
brown sugar or another vegan sweetener, if needed
a splash of nondairy milk or creamer, if needed

3 medium-sized apples, cut into slices 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 vanilla bean (or a teaspoon vanilla extract)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
a dash of allspice
2 tablespoons margarine, cut into small pieces

Directions

1. Begin by preparing the apples. Preheat the oven to 400F. After you’ve cleaned and peeled the apples, cut them into slices about 1/4″ thick. Consistency is more important than the size; try to cut them as evenly as possible so that they bake at the same rate. The thicker the slices, of course, the longer the bake time!

2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, cornstarch, vanilla bean, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice; mix well.

3. Transfer the apples to a small baking dish. Dot with the margarine. Bake, uncovered at 400F for about 45 minutes, or until the apples are soft and tender. Stir halfway through so that all the apples bake evenly.

4. When done, allow the apples to cool. Transfer the apples (and their juices!) to an airtight container and refrigerate for 6-8 hours or until cold. You can make and store the apples up to a day before blending the ice cream.

5. To make the ice cream: Put the apples in the food process and pulse until chunky.

Tip: If you’d like your ice cream chunky, set a few apples slices aside. Cut them into smaller pieces and mix them into the ice cream at step #8.

6. Add the (frozen) bananas iand pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl. If necessary, add a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer to get things moving!

Alternately, you can allow the bananas to defrost on the counter top for 30 to 60 minutes beforehand, so that they’re easier to work with. Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a butter knife.

Note: Since introducing extra liquids (such as non-dairy milk) into the mix results in a slightly icier finished product, I prefer defrosting to non-dairy milk. If you’re in a hurry, pop the bananas in the microwave for 20 to 45 seconds instead. The juices from the apples should help in this regards.

7. Sample the batter and add a bit of sugar or other spices if desired.

8. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container. Enjoy immediately as soft serve, or pop the ice cream in the freezer for an hour+ for a firmer dessert. Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, microwave it for ten seconds to help loosen it up (or let the container sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to eating, depending on room temp).

Did I already post this here? I forget. So many accounts, blurg.

So this ice cream has got it going on: with both bananas and carrots, it’s got a serving (or two or three, depending on how big you like your sundaes!) of fruits and veggies, all in one delicious dessert. I got the idea for it while reminiscing about the Carrot Cake Banana Ice Cream I made last summer (mmmm, carrot cake ice cream!). Here, the carrots are roasted in a maple syrup-bourbon sauce (the bourbon is optional, but gives it a nice kick!) and then blended into a fine mash using the food processor.
Personally, I think that the bourbon’s the most distinct taste, but Shane’s undecided. We’re both big fans, though. Try it and see for yourself!
Maple-Roasted Carrot Banana Ice Cream
(Makes about three quarters of a quart of ice cream.)
Ingredients
4-5 large carrots, cut into thin slices 1/2 cup maple syrup 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon vegan bourbon (optional)
3-4 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen brown sugar to taste (optional) a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer, if needed
Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a 9″x9″ baking pan with the sliced carrots. (4-5 large carrots halved lengthwise and halved or quartered into thin slices should be enough to do it, but use your own judgement!) In a measuring cup, whisk the maple syrup, olive oil, and bourbon. Pour the mixture on top of the carrots and mix well, making sure that all the carrots are coated. Bake at 425F for 15 minutes. Toss the carrots and continue to bake for another 15 minutes, or until the carrots are soft and tender. Remove from the oven and (carefully!) transfer the carrots and their juices to a food processor. Process until smoothly blended. Allow the mash to cool on the countertop before continuing.
2. When you’re ready to make the ice cream: Add the bananas to the food processor and pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl.
