One Ingredient Banana Ice Cream Recipe


Okay, a lot of recipe blog addicts out there may already know this recipe but if you don't can I just prepare you to have your mind completely blown. At first you will 100% completely not believe this is going to work but TRUST ME it works ever single time. I don't even like bananas that much but this banana ice cream is my family's new addiction. It's yummy, creamy, custardy and just generally amazing. 


Step Two: Pop the banana coins into the freezer for two - three hours.

Step Three: Place all the frozen coins into the blender (or food processor) and blend. This step is magic! In a few seconds they will go from rock hard banana slices to crumbs and then magically turn into thick, rich, creamy ice cream.


If you want your ice cream a little chunkier like the picture above you can take it out of the blender while there are still some pieces in it. The longer you blend the smoother and creamier the ice cream will be. 


This is what my ice cream looked like after a few more seconds in the blender and personally I prefer it this way. 

Once this process is over, chances are your ice cream is going to be pretty sloppy as the bananas have been out of the freezer for quite a while. We found it was best served after chilling in the freezer for a little while longer after we'd made it. But having said that the first batch we made we couldn't resist eating it straight away! 

The ice cream will last perfectly in the freezer so feel free to make as much as you want. But make sure you put a lid on whatever you are storing it in or else it might absorb the other smells from your freezer (my mum loves to keep fish in the freezer.)

The other amazing thing about this recipe is that you don't even need that many bananas. I used three bananas when I was making it and that made two whole bowls of ice cream (both the bowls from the pictures above). 

If you do try out the recipe please leave a comment to tell me how it went!
