Bananas That Taste Like Ice Cream
Perhaps the best bananas in the world, “ice cream bananas” melt in your mouth and taste like vanilla… AND they can be grown in colder climates!
Blue Java bananas originated in Southeast Asia and are prevalent throughout the Hawaiian islands.
Unlike most tropical fruit trees, they can withstand temperatures as low as -6 Celsius!
And best of all, they taste like vanilla ice cream!
Creamier and fluffier than your typical Chiquita banana, Blue Javas (also known as “ice cream bananas”) reportedly melt in your mouth and have a flavor reminiscent of vanilla bean.
That means they could be the perfect ingredients for increasingly popular, single-ingredient banana ice cream. This non-dairy ice cream substitute is super easy to make and healthy too!
Just wait until the beautiful blue peels ripen to a soft yellow. Remove peels and freeze. Stick them in a Vitamix, or better yet a banana ice cream maker.
Only trouble is they’re hard to find unless you have a specialty grocer nearby.
The good news is they’re easy to grow and produce fruit fast.
You can buy a potted tree online and have bananas within 9 months.
