Quick ice cream without ice cream maker

Main ingredients: banana, melon, vanilla

Honestly, i didn't think the Honeydew Melon Ice Cream from a few weeks ago could be any better than it already was. But i was wrong. 

By accident - because i had nothing else at hand, and because i had accidentally ripped open the bag - i ended up adding the content of one Green Tea Vanilla bag to the ice cream, and it was so so good! The sweetness of the melon, and the vanilla flavour of the green tea bag work together perfectly! 

And the little spots from the tea leaves actually look like vanilla bean specks, don't they? :) 

If you don't want to use a Green Tea Vanilla bag, you could just use actual seeds from a vanilla bean. Which is like three times as expensive, but probably extremely delicious. Your choice!

Ingredients

2 large ripe bananas, chopped and frozen 
1/2 ripe honeydew melon, chopped and frozen
1 bag of Vanilla Green Tea OR seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean 

also:
- a high-speed blender or food processor (NO NEED FOR AN ICE CREAM MAKER!)


Instructions

Place in high-speed blender or food processor and blend until creamy stiff.

Scoop ice cream into bowl and add toppings (in my case a tiny bit agave syrup). 

Tug in and enjoy!
