Lemon Poppy Seed Soft Serve

Sunday, April 22, 2012

The inspiration: last weekend while talking to my little sister on the phone she had lemon-poppy-seed cookies in the oven. I knew right then that I would be making something of that flavor combination and this is dedicated to her! Yes, I know you'll love it, L. : )
It's so simple to make and yet divine. A dessert or snack that's refreshing and guilt-free, and quite filling, really, what else would you need? Raw lemon poppy-seed cookies remain on my "to do list" or rather, my "come up with" list...

Lemon Poppy Seed Soft Serve
2 large frozen bananas (peel and slice before freezing)
juice of 2 lemons
~ 1/2 cup water or nut mylk
1 tbsp honey or your favorite sweetener to taste
~2 tbsp poppy seeds*
 tsp coconut oil
optional: little lemon zest

Grind the poppy seeds using a traditional poppy seed grinder or a spice grinder/coffee grinder first if you have one, then place all ingredients in a high speed blender. Start the process on a low setting and gradually increase the speed. Add extra liquid slowly (if necessary) while monitoring the consistency. You will have soft serve ice cream in under a minute. Share and enjoy every spoonful of it!

*Poppy seeds are very rich in minerals. You can read about their nutrition contents here and try out more recipes such as poppy seed bars or salad dressing to incorporate them into your diet.
