Now the type of juicer you need to create a flowing stream of banana soft-serve is a Champion Juicer, which is one costly piece of equipment I do not happen to own. A quick search online will uncover lots of folks making banana ice cream with a food processor, so I tried it and it worked great. This involved a little more bowl scraping to help the banana's blend, but once it got going, I was left with an incredibly creamy delicious treat. Scooped into some ice cream cones, it was a delectable memory come to life...and a great first ice cream of the season.
Banana Ice Cream
This one ingredient ice cream is a great base for any flavors combinations you love. Try adding some ground cardamom or ginger, a little cocoa, peanut butter, frozen raspberries or Khalua.
- Peel and slice bananas into 1 inch pieces.
- Place bananas on a tray or plate to freeze in a single layer for at least 2 hours,
- Put frozen sliced bananas into a food processor, plus and then blend until the mixture is very creamy, scraping down the sides as needed to get the mixture going round. This may take a few minutes and a lot of scraping, but it will eventually become smooth and creamy.
- Scoop and eat immediately.
