A few weeks ago Kim sent me this link from theKitchn, How To Make Creamy Ice Cream with Just One Ingredient! Being an ice cream fan I was immediately intrigued. So I did a little digging with google and discovered I was missing out on some crazy banana ice cream trend!
Who would have thunk it? a frozen banana run through the food processor would make the most amazing creamy dessert!
This doesn't really warrant a recipe but I'll right up my base and you can make it your own.
- 2 ripe or overripe bananas
- 2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
- Chocolate Syrup (optional - in picture)
Break or cut up the banana in about 1 inch chunks and freeze solid. At least 2-3 hours.
Puree frozen banana chunks in the food processor for about 5 minutes. You will have to stop it every minute or so to mix and squish the banana towards the blades.
About half way through add the vanilla.
Enjoy immediately or refreeze.
Once you refreeze the banana soft serve, you will have to let it sit for about 5 minutes before stirring.
Mini chocolate chips, frozen wild blueberries, chocolate syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, peanut butter, strawberries, any berries, granola for crunch, oh my the options are endless! Give it a try and post your variations in the comments!
