The easiest one-ingredient ice cream recipe! Banana ice cream is one of my favorite desserts. I like adding a bit of protein powder and nut butter for a more balanced treat but there are endless flavor variations you can try. How about peanut butter, mint chocolate chip, strawberry or matcha? YUM.

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled, chopped and frozen until solid

Instructions

  1. Place the frozen banana in a food processor and pulse a few times to start breaking it down.
  2. Once it’s fairly well broken down, slowly start blending stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. It will seem a little dry and icy at first but continue blending until it forms a smooth, creamy, soft serve ice cream-like texture. Depending on your blender or food processor you may need a little splash of dairy-free milk but for best results, try to use just the banana.
  3. Scoop the ice cream into a bowl and enjoy right away or place back in the freezer for 30-60 minutes for firmer ice cream.
