Strawberry-Cheesecake Banana Soft Serve

I know. 

Another Banana Ice Cream Recipe.  I just can’t help myself.  My 3-year-old is always asking for Banana Ice Cream.  So I am always freezing bananas and trying out new recipes for the kids.  I have a few others I want to try, so stay tuned. šŸ™‚

Do you know what makes this banana soft serve taste like cheesecake?  I added a tablespoon of my Cheesecake butter.  The cheesecake butter made this delicious!  Don’t have any Cheesecake Butter sitting around?  don’t worry, I have written in the recipe below what to add in place of this.

Both of my kids are skinny.  My second son is only in the 4th % for weight for his age, and his doctor has advised me to give him lots of whole milk and lots of healthy calories.  When I made this for my kids, I used whole milk, but when I made this for me, I used almond milk.  ( cashew milk would also be appropriate, although I have not tried it yet)

This looks so good! However I do have a question for you. Is there something that could be used instead of cashews? (allergic to them) If so, I would love to try this!

I would use soaked almonds. If you are allergic to all nuts, I would just use lemon juice, and a nice amount of vanilla to get the effect. I guess you could add some Nilla Wafers for texture- although not the healthiest. šŸ™‚

Oh gosh this looks like a great pick-me-up this summer season here in the Philippines. I would love to have it as a snack, breakfast, or dessert!

I would love to make my own ice cream. I need to give it a try. These flavors look so awesome!

We’ve been making banana ice cream for a few years now. I always make sure to buy extra bananas knowing I will freeze some. They either go in smoothies or we make ice cream. We’ve tried a few variations of flavor over the years. We’ll have to try cheese cake next.

This recipe sounds delicious! I am going to try this since I have most of the ingredients in my pantry (lacing the cheesecake butter). Thanks!

Wow, that looks so scrumptious! I love, love that it is vegan. I’ll definitely have to give this recipe a try sometime!

This looks so delicious. I will have to try making some for my family. I am sure they will love it.

Cheese cake butter? Sounds like a great combo for any kind of fruit shake. I will try this when it gets warm up here, we’re 17 degrees right now!

I love this! SO much! I can have ice cream again! I know it’s not TRUE ice cream, but it actually sounds even better. Thanks!
