Oh my gosh, half the video is missing. Well, not missing, it's there but all black screen with the sound of my food processor blitzing about. Then when I thought I was recording, I took still shots and when I thought I wasn't recording, I got my feet. So there ya' go. That was my day at work.
I don't know what I'm doing but I am having fun.
Let's move on to the today's dessert, apple and banana soft serve. Not my top pick in the collection but super smooth and scoopable. Even held shape after the photo shoot.
Food processor, rubber spatula, scooper (optional), and the ability to wing-it. Allergy-friendly doesn't have to be bland or boring. Have fun with different fruits (and veggies).
INGREDIENTS: (makes 4-5 medium scoops)
1 Organic Banana (sliced and frozen)
* I used almost ready-to-eat, nanners
2 Organic Apples (w/skins on, chunked and frozen)
* For this, I used organic POMMES from Chile
100% Pure Maple Syrup (from fridge)
* For this, I used medium grade amber
Organic Cinnamon, to taste
Organic Nutmeg, to taste
NOTE: If you're adventurous also add ground allspice and cloves, taking care not to over-power the apple.
ORGANICS: I choose organic non-GMO ingredients. If not using organic apples, please discard the skins, especially for those with compromised immune systems, like me :-)
MAPLE SYRUP: I use local medium amber, or Canadian dark amber. Both 100% pure.
FREEZING FRUIT: Slice and place fruit on an uncovered bake or cookie tray. Freeze overnight or shorter, depending on your freezer, taking care not to over-freeze.
Once properly frozen, allow fruit to defrost slightly so that it easily comes off the pan. From here, the fruit should not clump when stored in freezer safe container or baggie.
1) Dump frozen fruit, then the spices in the food processor bowl and hit blitz. Those using 4 cup mini preps, select grind.
2) Once crumbly, open lid, knock back down and taste. Adjust spices, if needed.
3) Blitz again and drizzle 30-60ml (2-4 TB) of maple syrup. The maple will emulsify the frozen fruit, resulting (depending on your machine), in a smooth and scoopable texture.
Over processing will create a mush. Give yourself a few goes to get the texture and taste the way you like.
4) Eat straight away.
Thanks for reading & boogie boogie :-)
