This banana cranberry orange cream is a delightful non-dairy "ice cream" substitute vegan treat for Thanksgiving or any other festive meal. This recipe will make 4-6 servings.
We usually decide to have banana cream, or one of our variations, when we have bananas that are very ripe and covered with brown spots, but not mushy. Markets often offer these ripe bananas at a reduced price.
Place four cups of the frozen banana slices in the container of a high speed blender, such as a Vita Mix, add the frozen cranberries, orange juice, and dates, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the ingredients are creamy smooth. Use the tamper to work all the bananas, dates, and cranberries into the blades. (Do not use the tamper without the cover being firmly in place.) This should take about one minute.
If you are making more than one batch of banana cranberry orange cream, place the completed "no-dairy ice cream" in a container in the freezer while you prepare additional batches.
Serve in individual bowls and enjoy!
The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
