By now you may have heard about the magic that is banana ice cream. But in case you’ve been leading a sweet-less existence, I beg you to grab some frozen bananas and get to dairy-free ice-creaming. Seriously, right now! I can’t remember the first time I heard about this simple, glorious combination, but I’ve been hooked ever since.
Ice cream that you can make in 5 minutes…
with only 1 ingredient…
and tastes just as good as banana soft serve?
This is not a dream.
As a self-proclaimed ice-cream junkie, I can proclaim that banana ice cream is no joke. Whoever invented this dreamy concoction, I send you love, hugs and happy dances with every sweet and creamy bite.
Plus, since it’s summer, ice cream sandwiches have to be on the menu. I’ve always loved the flavor combination of chocolate, peanut butter and banana so a few weeks ago, after a sudden craving for peanut butter cookies, this little cutie was born.
You’ll need to use frozen solid bananas for this. I always have a bag, er or ten, in my freezer for recovery smoothies, pudding thickeners, or green drinks. To freeze, peel your bananas and chop into chunks- I usually chop my bananas in 4-5 thick slices. This helps when you go to puree them, the machine doesn’t have to break down large ice-like chunks. Place into freezer safe bags, remove as much air as possible and freeze.
