Banana Ice Cream – 1 ingredient! Dairy & Sugar Free

Standard

We fell in love this morning! 

It is a long weekend so we made wholemeal pancakes with banana ice cream and raspberries.  The kids were a bit amazed at the idea of having ice cream for breakfast!

Here’s how we did it:

Banana Ice Cream

3 frozen, skinless bananas (slice in chunks and freeze them when they are really ripe but not quite as ripe as you would use for banana bread).

Blitz them up in a food processor and voilà! you have ice cream!  We served it up straight away as it was a   last-minute addition to our pancakes. 

If you find that it isn’t blitzing that well in your processor or you want a creamy ice cream a bit faster, add an unfrozen banana and that helps with the blitzing. 

THAT’S IT!!!

It was amazingly creamy and just like ice cream.

We added some extras this time as it was a ‘special’ day:

2-3 Tbsp of Cocao

1 Tbsp of maple syrup

Other additions could include:  coconut, nuts, and other frozen fruit for a different taste.  Frozen strawberries work really well with the banana.

For a creamier dessert, try adding some greek yogurt or try freezing them in popsicles (ice blocks).
