One ingredient ice cream.

Posted: July 27, 2012 in Family Stuff, Recipes

You read that correctly! One ingredient. Mine actually had two but you can totally make it with one. That one ingredient is BANANAS! I didn’t believe it until I tried it. It seemed way too easy to be true.

Here is all you need to make awesome banana ice cream:
4 bananas
Food processor

And that is it. Seriously.

Here’s how to do it:
Slice up your bananas into 1/4 – 1/2 inch discs. Do not try to blend or cut up a whole frozen banana. It’s nearly impossible. I also added strawberries to mine. If you decide you want to add other ingredients and you want them to stay intact, like chocolate chips, make sure to add them at the end after the bananas have been blended.

Put the kids to work!

Pop them in the freezer for 1 -2 hours.

Put them in your food processor. Make sure to PULSE and not turn it on all the way.
I turned mine on and it almost flew off the counter and the noise was crazy loud.
You are basically chopping rocks so be prepared! Pulse until you get banana “gravel”.

Keep pulsing and scrapping down the sides and eventually you will get smooth and creamy frozen bananas.
If it is really thick and not thinning out, you can add a splash of coconut milk to thin it out.
At this stage you can add whatever else you like: nut butter, chocolate chips, blueberries. You get the idea.
Pulse a few more times to incorporate your extra ingredients.

Scoop it out and eat it right away or put it in the fridge to harden it.
If you don’t eat it all right away, freeze the remainder.
When you are ready to eat the rest, thaw if for a few minutes before scooping. Enjoy!
