1 Ingredient Banana Ice Cream
I was thinking about what would go well with this Homemade Chocolate Shell and then I thought of a recent episode of Daniel Tiger that I saw with my daughter where Daniel tries new food that he feels hesitation about 🙂
LOL, Please bear with me…Anyways, in the episode, they make “Banana Swirl” which is basically sliced, frozen bananas, processed in a food processor. So simple, yet so amazing. The result is thick and creamy “ice cream.”
I say that with air quotes because there is no dairy in this recipe which makes my dairy-sensitive husband quite happy. He can eat this 1 Ingredient Banana Ice Cream along with some Homemade Chocolate Shell and be happy as a clam.
When I made this recipe, Eric kept asking me, “This is just frozen bananas?” He could not believe it!
I was like, “Yes, isn’t it amazing – the texture?”
- 9-10 large, , ripe bananas
- Optional: toppings like vanilla whipped cream, , cherries, Homemade Chocolate Shell, Coconut Caramel Sauce, Easy Caramel (dulce de leche), sprinkles, nuts, etc.
- Cut 9-10 ripe bananas into 1/2 inch round slices and put into a loaf pan, cover and freeze overnight. Optional: You can put a piece of parchment paper under the bananas to ensure that you can get them out easier the next day.
- Take out frozen bananas and process in a food processor until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides if necessary. This may need to be done in batches depending on the size of your food processor. I can usually get everything processed in 2 batches with the size of my food processor. (Note: You can also use a blender (I have done in the past) if you do not have a food processor but it can be more difficult and you need to scrape down the sides more and do it in smaller batches.)
- Transfer processed frozen banana mixture back into loaf pan and spread evenly. Refreeze for later or enjoy right away with or without optional toppings. If you decide to freeze it for later, know that you will need it to sit for about 15 minutes to soften up before scooping. Enjoy!
