I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream!
Most people are always looking for easy, healthy recipes and for ways to use up their bananas. This 2 ingredient ice cream recipe fits the bill and is a hit with the family… not to mention it’s guilt free ice cream… well as far as ice cream goes!
What you’ll need depends on what you like. I made 3 different versions of this ice cream and all were great! We began with banana and peanut butter, moved to banana berry and ended in banana and chocolate!
For all versions you will need to peel your bananas and freeze them on wax paper placed on a cookie sheet, you can freeze them whole to be cut up later or cut them fresh and freeze in a single layer.
Banana and Peanut Butter- I placed 2 cut up bananas and 4 tablespoons of peanut butter into my food processor and blended until creamy. Honestly, while they were all good, this was my favorite! There was a hint of banana but it was some of the best frozen, well anything, that I have ever had. It wasn’t overly banana flavored. You could start with 1 tablespoon per banana and see how it tastes, as you can always add more but I really loved that ratio.
Banana and Berry- This recipe will depend more on taste, though I used about 1/2 cup per banana used and I used a frozen berry medley, though fresh berries could be used, because I used the frozen berries, I also added 1-2 teaspoons of milk (coconut, almond, good old milk, whatever you use) to this to make it creamy. I mixed it up and it was yummy!
Banana and Chocolate- I made this one much like the peanut butter, except I used chocolate butter. I suppose that something like Nutella could be used too, though the sugar content in Nutella is very high comparatively to most nut butters, even this chocolate one.
We loved all of these and you can do any number of mixtures, Banana and blueberry (I would start with 1/2 cup of fruit per banana) or instead of 2 ingredients you could just enjoy banana ice cream maybe with your favorite topping! As with the Banana and Berry ice cream, should you find that your mixture, regardless of combination, isn’t super creamy, just add some “milk” to get the consistency that you want.
Bet + fam 🙂
