How to Make Bannana Icecream Using Only 1 Ingredient!
The weather is starting to warm up and the jackets are coming off. Summer is on the way and nothing says summer better then... icecream!
A member of our Cleaning Mate Team has recently discovered a way to make fantastic ice cream using only one ingredient! What ingredient you ask? Just Banana! Here is how!
What You will Need:
1 large ripe banana
Airtight, freezer-safe container
Small food processor
Start with ripe bananas: They should be sweet and soft.
Step 1. Peel the bananas and cut them into coins (small enough to be chopped by the food processor)
Step 2. Put the bananas in an airtight container and freeze the banana pieces for at least 2 hours (ideally overnight)
Step 3. Blend the frozen banana pieces in a small food processor or powerful blender: Pulse the frozen banana pieces. (We've found that a small food processor or chopper works best).
Step 4. Keep blending â€” the banana will look crumbly: At first the banana pieces will look crumbled or smashed. Scrape down the food processor.
Step 5. Keep blending â€” the banana will look gooey: Then it will look gooey, like banana mush. Scrape down the food processor.
Step 6. Keep blending â€” the banana will look like oatmeal: It will get smoother but still have chunks of banana in it. Scrape down the food processor.
Step 7. Watch the magic happen! Suddenly, as the last bits of banana smooth out, you'll see the mixture shift from blended banana to creamy, soft-serve ice cream texture. Blend for a few more seconds to aerate the ice cream. (If adding any mix-ins, like peanut butter or chocolate chips, this is the moment to do it.)
Step 8. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until solid: You can eat the ice cream immediately, but it will be quite soft. You can also transfer it back into the airtight container and freeze it until solid, like traditional ice cream.
While the one-ingredient aspect of this ice cream is a big part of its charm, we don't think that loses much when it becomes two or even three ingredient ice cream. Here are a few favorite mix-ins to make it even more awesome.
Spoonful of peanut butter
Drizzle of honey
Handful of chocolate chips
A few almonds
Dollop of Nutella
Scoop of cookie butter
Tablespoon of cocoa powder
Half a teaspoon of cinnamon, cardamom, or ginger
