I keep going back to this post on the kitchn….ONE INGREDIENT ICE CREAM. It’s absolutely bananas! That’s it! I started to preheat the oven today for banana bread and said SCREW IT. I couldn’t be bothered, so made ice cream instead! It’s the simplest little recipe. There’s no ice cream maker required. You just need a device that can puree almost frozen bananas and then you have banana ice cream! No wonder everyone’s been raving about it! It’s CRAZY DELICIOUS.
You’ll find that it’s pretty adaptable. A scoop of peanut butter mixed in would be good…cocoa powder would be dandy! Some cocoa nibs or some chocolate chips? Heaven! I put a scoop of unsweetened coconut flakes in ours tonight! It added a nice little crunchy texture. I topped it with a little chunk of pizelle my grandma made. Hummina Hummina!
The directions go something like this:
Take your bananas! Peel them! (2 bananas makes 1 big scoop)
Cut them up into little pieces and freeze for about 2 hours on a plate.
Whip out your puree tool. I used my small Cuisinart.
Here’s the part where I added a scoop of coconut in!
And now you puree! It goes pretty fast!
Voila! Ice cream! Make sure you freeze the banana pieces for close to 2 hours before you puree. I cheated and did only 1 hour for my first round and it wasn’t as solid!
I gave Coop a little taste….
And after licking it off the cookie….
He LOVED IT!!!
