When it comes to mother nature there is no barrier on it providing us with tasty delicious dessert flavored fruits, you don’t need to buy a tub of Ben and Jerry’s every night. There is one banana that taste just like ice cream, in fact, it is nicknamed the ice cream banana.
When it comes to bananas most people know the Cavendish, the banana that every supermarket in the world stocks because it ships well. But actually, there are thousands of types of bananas and some taste way better. The Blue Java is one of those famous bananas, and it tastes exactly like vanilla ice cream.
Blue Java bananas even have peels that are frost tipped, they even share the same texture of ice cream! When they grow and before they are ripe they are actually more of a blueish and sea green color. Once they ripen this is where the real flavor comes in, the ice cream banana becomes a fluffy fruit that has a creamy texture. So do not just give them up if you do not like traditional bananas, Blue Java is pretty much a whole new type of fruit.
Technically many like to see them as a specialty tropical fruit because they are rarer and unknown to the whole world. However, they are anything but new, the Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers have been harvesting them since the 1920s. And the best part is they are organic, not a man-made mutation, this is an organic and naturally mutated banana. This means they have that great wholesome flavour and nothing that could be bad for the body.
The only problem is that if you do want to try one, well you are going to have to travel, the Ice cream banana does not travel well. But if you go where it flourishes, you may be in luck, the best spots are Southern Florida, Fiji, and Central America. One great way to eat them is to freeze them and then dip them in chocolate, or what about ice cream banana bread?
