Oh yes I said it. I just made ice cream in minutes, with just a small food processor. And it is healthy!
Do you have Bananas? Frozen Bananas? Well then you can have creamy ice cream in minutes.
I was so excited about this treat it has brought be back to my blog after a super long absence. I haD barely finished inhaling this treat and jumped on my computer to share it. I had seen “one ingredient ice cream” on Pinterest a few times so thought I’d try my luck.
The elevator pitch to make banana ice cream is this: Take a frozen banana per person, peal them, cut them into coins, drop into a small food processor and pulse away until smooth and creamy. You can eat it right away- kinda like soft malt ice cream or freeze it and have a colder, harder ice cream. HOW FLIPPING EASY!
We added a teaspoon of Trader Joe’s Cookie and Cocoa Swirl once the bananas had become creamy and smooth.
As I was jumping up and down in the kitchen i decided to add a few coconut flakes and a bit of chocolate sauce to garnish. As you can see I couldn’t wait long enough to make it a perfect shot – I had to eat it!
ONE INGREDIENT BANANA ICE CREAM
Peel frozen Bananas and cut into coins
Pulse them in a small food processor
Scrape the bananas down every minute with a spatula, continue pulsing.
It will go from frozen chunks, to a bit like gooey oatmeal then all of a sudden it will smooth out and become creamy – soft server ice cream style
Add any extras at this point, pulse to blend them in and to aerate the banana ice cream a bit more.
Eat or Freeze in an air tight container to eat the next day for a more solid style ice cream.
Yep Thats it. Now you can get creative and add other yummy things…. like a few almonds, or peanut butter, or honey, or maple syrup, or Nutella, or maybe Kahlua (ohhhh that’s my next one). Wonder what a bit of ginger or cinnamon or cocoa, butterscotch chips… toss in anywhere from one teaspoon to a couple tablespoons depending on how your tastebuds.
I can’t wait to make this for my daughter tomorrow night. Beats a donut any night.
