I have seen that this one-ingredient-wonder has been worshipped lately and have been meaning to try it out for while. I did today and the result is amazing!
Peel and slice a banana and keep in the freezer until it has frozen. Take it out and place in a blender. Blend for 1-2mins (depending on your blender). When blending the frozen banana initially appears to turn into crumbs, keep going and eventually it will form a thick paste. Here is your easy banana ice-cream!
From here the possibilities are endless… I chose to add a tablespoon of peanut butter and a few tablespoons of cocoa powder and I blended this in with the banana. After adding the peanut butter the natural fats in the nuts helped to smooth out the ice-cream and it got thinner and easier to blend. I was going to add honey but I found the banana was already sweet enough. This is a super easy and super healthy dessert alternative and mine tasted like a cold and creamy chocolate mousse!
If you are stuck for ideas of what to add here are some of mine: (I will definitely be trying these in the future!)
– Tinned fruits such as mangoes or peaches
– Frozen berries (especially raspberries!)
– Maple syrup and chopped walnuts
– Coffee or chai
– Stewed and puréed apples with cinnamon
