- 3 Ripe Bananas
I still can’t believe how good this is! I found this “recipe” over a year ago on Our Best Bites, but I wasn’t really in a hurry to try it as I was a bit skeptical. All you need is one thing. Bananas! How could bananas be anything like ice cream? I had to try it out. I sliced 3 ripe bananas before they turned too brown and froze them in a ziploc. The first time I made it, Lyla couldn’t even wait for me to give her a spoon and started eating it with her bare hands! It was so sweet and the texture was just like real ice cream. I was shocked! Who would’ve thought dessert could be as simple as a banana?! It reminds me of the chocolate covered frozen bananas at Cedar Point! This is an awesome “treat” that I wouldn’t feel guilty about my kids or I having any time of day!
Here’s what you do: Put the frozen banana slices into the food processor and turn it on just until it’s blended enough. I had to stop a couple of times to scrape the sides down. (I didn’t want to over blend it and make it mushy instead of icy so it’s a good idea to stop and check it.) When it’s blended enough it may still look like little shreds or balls, but stir it around once with a spatula and it becomes nice and smooth and so good!
At this point you can either serve it as is (amazing) or add a little something extra. It’s not necessary, but you could add a spoonful of chocolate syrup, nutella, or even peanut butter. We ate some plain and some with nutella and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. They are both delish, but we honestly like the plain ice cream better! You have to try this to believe how good it is!
Here is what the ice cream will look like when it’s ready… It looks shredded, but as soon as you put a spoon in it you will see that it’s creamy.
