Homemade ice cream. No ice cream maker. Vegan. Easy. Fast. Delicious
Roll your eyes all you want. I’m serious. Minimal ingredients, minimal equipment, and about two minutes longer than normal ice cream. This doesn’t really even taste like banana; the fruit serves as a great canvas for any other spices you like.
Oh, and did I mention healthy? Tastes just as creamy and smooth as milk-based ice cream. Just prepare to release all that doubt. This will knock your socks off.
I made honey roasted peanut butter right before, left a little peanut butter in the processor, then processed the banana. Ah-mazing.
*This does require a food processor, but those are easier to come by and much more applicable than ice cream makers.
Homemade Ice Cream
extremely ripe, frozen banana, chunked
any other topping you can think of!
Put the chunks of frozen banana in the food processor. Turn the machine on and let it process until almost smooth. Turn the machine off and add whatever you want. All the seasonings listed above are to taste, so you decide how much or if you like them at all. But obviously, cocoa powder for the chocolatier.
Turn the machine back on for a few more seconds until creamy.
If you want a super chilled dessert, throw the final product in the freezer for a few minutes. If you can’t wait that long (I couldn’t), eat.
Confession: I bought about a pound of extra bananas just so they could get overripe and I could put them in the freezer. Specifically for this. Just saying.
