If you’ve ever made ‘nice cream’, you know how AMAZING frozen bananas are at impersonating ice cream when blended with a little bit of of liquid. They take on the texture of soft serve, and the banana flavor is very mild, especially if paired with strong flavors and if the bananas used are not too under or over ripe. I took this healthy recipe to the next level by blending it up with a classic Negroni and a little juice for an unexpected and delicious twist on dessert, #ginuary style.
This recipe creates a nice thick milkshake consistency. Double the bananas and use a food processor for legit ice cream-like texture.
- 1 oz gin
- 1 oz sweet vermouth
- 1 oz Campari
- 3/4 cup frozen diced banana
- Juice of 1 small orange ? (use blood oranges if you have them!)
- Pinch of salt
Toss in a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with orange slices. Can be batched and stored in the freezer.
