Toasted Almond and Vanilla Nice Cream

We don’t need good weather as an excuse to eat ice-cream, so even though the sun is starting to show it’s face, this ice-cream is an awesome dessert all year round! For those of you who have had gelato, this ice cream is a similar texture, creamy, smooth and stringy- yep stringy in a good way! It’s super indulgent and its crazy to think it’s just a few simple ingredients we probably all have in our presses already! Plus, it’s a handy way to use up soft bananas before they go totally off.
