One Ingredient Banana Ice Cream Recipe

IMG_5363

We wanted to go out for ice cream. But we were hesitant. Deep down inside we both knew it wasn't the wisest choice we could make, seeing as how we've both gained a few pounds in recent weeks. Then Kevin recalled me talking about this simple banana ice cream. He referred to it as "that banana crap." We laughed at his crud description. Neither of us thought this would turn into anything worth while. 

But it totally did! Within 60 seconds I had a bowl full of soft, creamy banana "ice cream"--totally healthy, and super delicious! You must try this next time (in the event you don't feel like baking another loaf of banana bread. :D) 

One Ingredient Banana Ice Cream Recipe 
recipe adapted from twopeasandtheirpod.com
Serves 3-4

Ingredients
4 large very ripe bananas

Directions
Peel bananas and cut into 1 inch pieces. Arrange in a single layer on a plate or baking sheet and freeze for at least 1-2 hours. (You may wrap these and store in an airtight bag or container for weeks if you don't wish to use the bananas immediately.) 

Remove banana pieces from the freezer and add to a powerful blender or food processor. Puree until the bananas are smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. 

Serve and enjoy! 

We added a smidgen of chocolate syrup just for fun!

  1. Oh my! I only had one banana and it was incredible! I used my Ninja blender and it made the banana taste like Dippin Dots. I want to run to the store and buy more bananas. Thanks for sharing!
