I hope you don’t mind… I just jumped straight into the recipe! :) A few key things to keep in mind when making this recipe… Always start off with frozen RIPE bananas. Ripe bananas are sweeter and easier on the digestion. Strawberries… always, always, always, use organic strawberries. They are in the top 10 list of produce that requires being organic due to their high absorption of pesticides. Coconut cream is not 100% required in making this ice cream, but it the fat in the coconut cream will give it a smoother texture. Without it, it will be “icy”. When adding the dried coconut, you can leave it chunky or blend it smooth. I will let you decide. Bottom line, remember that the end result of a recipe will only be as good as the quality of ingredients used. Enjoy.
