|A bowl of whip.|
Unfortunately, this banana whip did not live up to my expectations in a couple ways. First, the peanut butter flavor was definitely overpowered by the banana flavor. The banana flavor is nice, but it's not what the recipe promises. Second, I thought the texture of the whip was a bit gummy, or almost too thick. If I make this dish again, I might blend in a tiny bit of soymilk to make it a bit lighter.Accessibility:
It's hard to beat a recipe with just two ingredients--especially when one of the ingredients is old fruit and the other is a pantry staple!Ease of Preparation:
This recipe requires a bit of advanced preparation and takes a while to make, although most of that time is inactive. Before making the banana whip, which simply requires food processing (or blending), you need to freeze the bananas for an hour or two.Non-vegan friendliness:
The original recipe authors call this dish "ice cream," but I'm calling it a "banana whip." As a frozen banana treat, it's decent; but, as a vegan version of ice cream, it doesn't make the cut.
Despite my mediocre review of this recipe, I might give it another shot. I'm curious to see if I can find a way to incorporate some chocolate into the whip. Chocolate makes everything better.
