Dairy-Free Banana Ice Cream

I am a firm believer that some days you just need to have ice cream for lunch. After all, summer and ice cream are a perfect match. I have fond memories of going to the small local ice cream shop on a hot summer evening with my parents. As a grown-up, ice cream still makes me smile.
