Balsamic banana ice cream 120 minutes

When it comes to plant-based cold desserts Montreal has a lot of options. The places I tried are all within walking distance, because generally when I want ice cream i don't want to have to go far to get it. Luckily, the 2 places that are near my home offer dairy-free options, though often this means sorbet. While I like sorbet, the flavours are rarely as creative as milk-based ice creams. When i don't want sorbet I just make my own ice cream at home. I have many other ice cream recipes on this blog but some of them require a bit more waiting time and effort, which admittedly I don't always care for. Banana ice cream to the rescue! A delicious and simple alternative to dairy or coconut based desserts.
