This has got to be the easiest recipe of all time! If you have bananas that are a little too ripe, don’t throw them out – put them in the freezer! They will turn brown and look disgusting, but don’t worry 🙂 Once the bananas are frozen, peel them and place them in a food processor. After pulsing a few times, you may have to scrape the sides of your bowl. Expect to see a chunky mess! Pulse a few more times, and voila! Banana ice cream! It has the exact same consistency as soft serve.
(If you are worried about your food processor or blender being able to handle the frozen banana: Peel the bananas and slice them up into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick disks. Place the banana slices in the freezer for about an hour or until they are frozen solid. Follow directions as usual.)
I didn’t love the plain banana flavor, so I added a blob of Justin’s honey almond butter. It was amazing!
You can eat it as is, or freeze for scooping. I haven’t tried it yet, but I have read a few places online that you can add cocoa powder to make chocolate ice cream. Can’t wait to try it!
