One-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream & 4 Flavours

One-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream & 4 Flavours

It is thought that ice cream may be the downfall of us all one day. Ice cream in the summer is not only ubiquitous, it is 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?

We've got a worthy contender. This one-ingredient ice cream we're sharing today contains zero dairy, takes minutes to make and doesn't require an ice cream maker. What?

It's bananas. Literally.

Here's the secret, super simple recipe.

Servings: 2
Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 Ripe Bananas, sliced and frozen

Directions:

  1. Add bananas to the food processor and blend.
  2. Occasionally scrape down the sides and continue to blend until smooth, approximately 3-5 minutes.

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. Even better, add your favourite mix-ins such as:

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