because I love you… one-ingredient banana ice cream

In honor of tomorrow’s upcoming National Banana Split Day, I’m making banana ice cream today! How appropriate, right? :)

What’s makes this homemade banana ice cream even more amazing is that it’s a one-ingredient ice cream…yes, ONE ingredient ice cream!! This recipe has flooded my RSS Feed and is all over Pinterest!

It’s all in the name, all you need are bananas! LOTS of bananas! In fact, I just sent someone a text saying I need more bananas lol. And what’s even more amazing (I know, I use this word way to much but it really is ________, *covers both hands over mouth* hehe :) is that you are able to add any type of mix-ins that you want! Go crazy, think Coldstone’s Creamy! May I suggest, a swirl of peanut butter, cookie dough bits, fresh blueberries, chocolate chips, and lots of sprinkles!

PS. I will try to snap a pic of my homemade banana ice cream…if I don’t eat it all :)

PPS. I love you guys! Thanks for reading! Wishing you a wonderful weekend! :))

One-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream (via The Kitchn)

  • ripe bananas
  • food processor or blender

Directions:

  1. Pick ripe bananas. Peel, cut into bite sized chunks, and freeze for at least an hour or two (best overnight!).
  2. Put the banana pieces in a food processor or blender. Blend on high. It will look crumbly and the mixture will probably get stuck a lot, but keep scraping down the sides of the bowl. After a few minutes of blending, the bananas turn creamy.
  3. Now’s the time to add in any mix-ins of your choice!
  4. The ice cream will be the texture of soft-serve, but if you freeze again in an airtight container, it will get harder and more like regular ice cream.

    • What would you say is the minimum amount of bananas to use? I have 2 frozen but I don’t think it’ll be enough and I really don’t want to have to wait another night to make this lol :)

      • Honestly I have no idea. I will buy bananas and when they are getting ripe and I have forgotten to eat them I cut them and chuck them in the fridge. Then i just put however much I feel like eating in the blender! I mean start with 2 because thats what you have! If you need more in it do peanut butter and some milk of sorts!

  1. I had no idea! Thanks for posting that. Wow gotta try it. Much healthier than regular ice cream and much healthier than the carrot cake with butter and cream cheese frosting I just made!
    You have a great weekend too Kat! XOXOXO
