One Ingredient Ice-cream

Pin It Now!
When I browsed recipes from MasterChef web page I found Black Banana Ice Cream. After read how it is prepared make me recall One Ingredient Ice cream posted by Lena, Frozen Wing.

Yes! The only ingredient is Banana! It is unbelievable right? I'm pretty sure most of you like me very curious about this one ingredient ice cream. The only way to find out is prepare and try out!

With some honey, chocholate chips and candy for my kids
Ooo...I like it after the first taste! Silky smooth with natural sweetness. I can have all I can eat without guilt. You will know the banana aftertaste. And not all like this. My younger son still prefer the 'real' type with artificial flavourings and egg powders etc, used in commercial ice creams :D
Banana with Yogurt
You can reduce the banana aftertaste with added honey, chocolate, peanut butter etc. Some like to add fresh fruits like berries, apples, mango etc. My personal choice is with yogurt! Nowadays I addicted to this ice cream :)

Do make some for your family and enjoy this silky, smooth and yet healthy ice cream.
Arrange nicely to be frozen
2 - 3 large ripe bananas, sliced and frozen (at least 2 hours).
*sizes of the bananas depend on the type of machine that you used. Since I process with food blender, banana had to be sliced very thinly. Slice according to the capacity of your food processor or blender.

~I used food blender
Place frozen bananas into food blender. You might need to thaw a little (but still frozen) for easy blending.

Pulse the blender until bananas turn into ice cream consistency.

Serve as soon as possible. Enjoy!

*It's better to eat it immediately as it melt very fast (as you can see in the picture). Try not to re-frozen as it gets too soft. You can freeze the sliced bananas. Just blend anytime you feel like having.
*For yogurt banana ice cream just add 1-2 tablespoons yogurt and blend together with frozen banana. Or add in any ingredients you like.
