CREAMY BANANA ICE CREAM

Heavenly Banana Ice Cream: A Creamy Dream in a Bowl

Calling all ice cream lovers! This recipe is for a homemade Banana Ice Cream that's bursting with ripe banana flavor and unbelievably creamy. It's a healthier alternative to store-bought ice cream, and it's surprisingly simple to make!

Ingredients:

  • For the Sweet Banana Base:

    • 3 ripe bananas
    • 200 grams granulated sugar (about 1 cup)
  • For the Dreamy Cream:

    • 500 milliliters heavy whipping cream (about 2 cups)

Instructions:

  1. Roast the Bananas: Preheat your oven to 150 degrees Celsius (300 degrees Fahrenheit). Peel the ripe bananas and place them on a baking sheet. Roasting the bananas intensifies their sweetness and adds a delightful depth of flavor to the ice cream.

  2. Create a Sweet Mash: Bake the bananas for 30 minutes, or until the peels turn black and the bananas are softened throughout. Remove the bananas from the oven and let them cool slightly.

  3. Whip Up the Bananas: In a large bowl, using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the roasted bananas and sugar together for 3 minutes, or until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.

  4. Whip Up the Cream: In a separate bowl, using clean beaters, whip the heavy cream on high speed until it reaches stiff peaks. This will create the light and airy whipped cream that will be folded into the banana mixture.

  5. Unite the Dreamy Layers: Gently fold the whipped cream into the cooled banana mixture using a rubber spatula. Be careful not to overmix, as you want to maintain some of the air from the whipped cream for a light and fluffy texture.

  6. Freeze for Future Bliss: Pour the banana ice cream mixture into a loaf pan or an airtight container. Cover the container and freeze for at least 8 hours, or until the ice cream is completely frozen.

  7. Scooping Up Sweetness: Once frozen, remove the banana ice cream from the freezer and let it soften slightly for a few minutes before scooping. This will make scooping easier. Scoop the delicious homemade Banana Ice Cream into bowls and enjoy!

Tips:

  • For an extra decadent treat, you can add chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or swirls of caramel sauce to the ice cream before freezing.
  • Frozen bananas can be stored in the freezer for up to a month. This makes it easy to have bananas on hand whenever you have a craving for homemade ice cream.
