Ice cream (with the calories of a banana)

September 29, 2011

Do you love ice cream?
Do you hate the calories and fat content of ice cream?
Do you want to eat ice cream with the same nutritional content as a banana?

Of course you do. This recipe will change your life – I mean it. When I tried this for the first time I could not believe no one had told me about it before. Then I realised nobody knows. Well except Annabel Karmel – where I found this idea. Since then it has been my mission to share this secret with the world.

You will need:

  • 1 bunch of bananas
That’s it – all you need to make creamy delicious ice cream. Don’t believe it? I didn’t either – but honestly you have to try it. All you have to do is:
  1. Peel a bunch of ripe bananas. 
  2. Freeze for at least four hours or overnight.
  3. Blend 
I don’t know why it happens but it turns into creamy banana flavoured delight. When I ate it for the first time. I kept thinking someone must have snuck some cream or something into the mix without me looking. Jazz it up with sprinkles or nuts or whatever takes your fancy. If I have time I refreeze it because it makes it a bit more solid. When I served it for my four year old she was so delighted because she thought it was a real treat. Hahaha little does she know there’s only a banana in there. 
My take on this recipe is to try mixing other fruit to it. Strawberries work well because they turn it pink. I also sometimes add a bit of milk as the banana can be hard to mix if it’s too frozen.

So there you go – my favourite recipe with only one ingredient. For more recipes with few ingredients head over to Recipeshed:
