When life gives you broken biscotti, make ice cream. Sometimes we have to adapt when a recipe does not go exactly the way we envision. And sometimes this adaptability leads to an even better recipe than previously imagined.  Thats what happened this morning.

I swear this biscotti would have turned out to be perfectly formed strips that were made for dunking into morning coffee if only I had cut it with the right knife.  However, what in fact resulted was a crumbed biscotti cookie surprise.  I stood there for a moment, taking in what misfortune had just befallen my beautiful biscotti when it dawned on me. Crumbled biscotti would be amazing on ice cream. What luck! My crumbly biscotti surprise turned out to be the catalyst for a more incredible recipe.  Broken biscotti vegan ice cream. Genius?  Well, accidentally anyway!

Bananas are the bees knees. Seriously. They are amazing. Take two frozen bananas, cut them into chunks, add vanilla, blend and VOILA! Ice cream!

It takes a few tries to figure out what banana blending method is best for you. I use my NutriBullet. I have found that it allows maximum blendage with little fuss. The way the frozen bananas whip up is very reminiscent of soft serve ice cream. What I love about this recipe most of all, is that the frozen bananas dont really taste like bananas. Yeah, I know, its weird. Bananas not tasting like bananas. They taste more like vanilla ice cream with a hint of banana.

    I have been vegan for 16 years, and gluten free for about 4. Before I was vegan and gluten free I never had biscotti. I am so glad I found your recipe, because I have always been curious as to what it tastes like, but never found one I could eat.
