Simplest Banana Ice Cream Recipe
As the weather gets warmer, we all start screaming for ice cream! To skip the high fat and high sugar sweet cream, try this super easy banana "ice cream" instead.
  1. Slice the bananas into approx. ¼ inch slices (medallions).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Lay the banana slices on the parchment paper, allowing the slices space in between so as not to touch each other (if they touch, they become more difficult to puree).
  4. Place in the freezer and freeze overnight, or for at least 3-4 hours to allow to fully harden.
  5. Throw banana slices into a food processor (a powerful blender might work as well). Pulse the banana in the food processor. At first, the the banana will look crumbly. Scrape down the sides of the food processor with a spatula. Continue blending until the last tiny pieces of banana smooth out. The consistency will turn from blended banana to a soft-serve ice cream texture.
  6. This is the best time to add extras! Chocolate chips, peanut butter, and cinnamon are all delicious choices.
  7. Enjoy right away, or freeze until solid. Yum!
