One-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream & 4 Flavors

One-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream & 4 Flavors

It is thought that ice cream may be the downfall of us all one day. Ice cream in the summer is not only ubiquitous, but it is also imposing. It declares its presence and demands to be eaten. With ice cream trucks all over the streets and soft serves on the beach, how can you not?

But hold the phones! We have a worthy contender that you will want to tell your clients ALL about. This one-ingredient ice cream we're sharing today contains zero dairy, takes minutes to make and doesn't require an ice cream maker. Your clients will LOVE it!

It's bananas. Literally.

Here's the secret, super simple recipe.

Servings: 2

  • 2 Ripe Bananas, sliced and frozen

Directions:

  1. Add bananas to the food processor and blend.

Wait, there's more.

Even though we love how simple and delicious the banana ice cream is, there are numerous ways to step up this treat. For a creamier texture, add coconut milk. To make the ice cream easier to scoop after freezing, you can add about 1 tbsp of vodka. Your clients will definitely think that’s a typo on their grocery list. Even better, they can add their favorite mix-ins such as:

  • Nuts
  • Fresh or Dry Fruit
  • Honey
  • Spices (cinnamon, cardamom, etc.)
  • Any nut butter
