The One-Ingredient Frozen Banana Ice Cream

frozen banana ice cream

When I read about this neat trick on The Kitchn, I said Eureka! I feel bad about throwing out ripe bananas. Now I found a great way to not waste food, eat more healthier dessert and at the time, to get the feeling of eating ice cream. All that, without the added calories. It sounds to good to be true but by reading the comments on The Kitchn, they are not joking.

The trick is simple, you wait until your bananas are well frozen. Cut them in small pieces. Then, you whiz it up in a blender or food processor until you get a custard-like texture. For a twist, you can add a tablespoon of peanut butter. You can eat it right away or put back in the freezer your banana ice cream. I will make my batch.
