Banana Ice Cream

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

 

Ok folks, it doesn’t get any easier or healthier than this…Banana Ice Cream is free of gluten, dairy, soy, nuts, food coloring, and artificial ingredients!  I always keep a bag of frozen bananas in my freezer.  They are great in smoothies and they also make amazing ice cream.  The real key is to make sure that your frozen bananas are ripe!!  This will greatly affect the flavor of the ice cream.  I simply allow my bananas to ripen.  You want the skins to be speckled with brown spots (not bruises).  Once they reach this level, peel them and freeze.  I tend to freeze mine whole, but you can cut them into discs to make it easier on yourself and blender when it comes to using them.

Just by blending frozen bananas, you get the perfect soft serve ice cream.  That’s it!  Just one ingredient!!  If you want to get creative you can add nut milk to it and make a shake / malt.  You can make top it with nuts, chocolate…well shoot its endless so I will let you be inventive.  You will need a good blender that has some power.  Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

  • Frozen Bananas ( the quantity depends on how many you are serving)
  • 1/4 + cup nut milk (all depends on how many bananas you use)

Preparation:

  1. Remove bananas from the freezer.
  2. Put frozen banana chunks into the blender and process.  You will need to stop the blender and scrape the sides often.

    If you use a blendtec, do you mind sharing if you use a particular setting or just use the pulse button?

      Hi Jammie!

      I use the “frozen ice cream” button usually. Or sometimes I use the generic button and increase the speed to about 3. I tend to take the lid off and “feather” the ice cream batter with a long handed spatula, but I only recommend this if a person feels really comfortable in doing so…I don’t want to be heal liable for dropped spatulas that get munched up and ruin your ingredients. :) Until then, I would stop every once and while to scrape the sides down. You can also add a little liquid such as nut milk or water if you want to soften it up a bit. I hope this helps, please let me know. Amie Sue

    i make this with the bananas frozen as you do, but add a fresh avocado instead of milk, result, yummy creamy icecream

    • amie-sue says:

      I will try that again Shadow. I enjoy avocados but usually not in my ice creams… flavor just gets to strong for me. But always willing to keep playing around with them. They are a great and healthy fat. Thanks for sharing! amie sue
