Curried Banana Frozen Yogurt


1/4 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp coriander seeds
1/8 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp cinnamon
3 small bananas, diced
1 tbsp Nutiva coconut oil
2 tbsp sage honey
2 cups nonfat plain yogurt

Grind turmeric, coriander, chili and cinnamon together. Set aside.

In a medium size pan, heat coconut oil over medium high heat. Add bananas and toss to coat in oil. Saute for two minutes and then add spice blend. Saute for another minute. Drizzle honey over bananas and saute for another one to two minutes until bananas are coated and begin to soften. Remove from heat and chill.

Blend yogurt and chilled curried bananas together. You can opt to mash the bananas further or leave them chunkier. I mashed about a third of the bananas but kept the mixture on the chunkier end.

Follow ice cream maker instructions to chill mixture. Store in freezer. Serve garnished with a mint leaf.

Wow! I am impressed. I've been contemplating the ingredients for the Royal Foodie Joust, but I never thought of frozen. Impressive.

This reminds me of the great green curry banana bread I bought at Momofuku Milk Bar bakery in NY. Yum!

What an original frozen yogurt recipe! I saw your request on FoodBuzz for other ice cream recipes. Here's a link to my Pine Nut and Brown Sugar recipe. It is addictive!

Disclaimer:

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
