A few weeks ago, I read an article on Serious Eats for a one ingredient banana ice cream recipe. The recipe caught my eye of course. How could one ingredient turn into ice cream? The one ingredient, is of course, frozen bananas. Apparently once frozen, and then put in a food processor, bananas have a texture and taste of ice cream.
The recipe is so easy, I couldn't resist testing it out. I immediately bought some bananas, stuck them in the freezer, and then this past weekend, popped them into my food processor. I was amazed. It did taste like ice cream! Once blended, the bananas take on a creamy texture, so the taste is like a banana ice cream. Very rich in banana flavor. And so healthy! Who would have thought there is such thing as a guilt free ice cream treat? Perfect to make one such a hot day too.
After blending it in the food processor, I stuck it in the freezer for about an hour so that it would firm up. I recommend using a food processor instead of a blender to mix the frozen banana. The blender makes it too liquidy- at least mine does.
