Will you believe me if I tell you that there is a homemade ice cream that we can prepare in 5 minutes, with only one ingredient, and eat without any guilt? We promise it's true! Since we tried this delicious banana ice cream we've become addicted: it's creamy, tastes great and has nothing to envy to traditional ice creams.
But the best of all is that... it's nothing but banana! No added sugar or fat, just good fruit... Finally a healthy ice cream!
You may wonder how it is possible for an ice cream made only with banana to be this creamy and we owe this miracle to the particular texture and consistency of the banana. When frozen and then liquefied, it transforms into a magnificent cream.
It's richer than banana ice cream from the ice cream parlor! Making this homemade ice cream is not easy... It's a piece of cake! Plus, it's perfect for those who are lactose or egg intolerant, two ingredients present in any traditional ice cream parlor ice cream.
- 1 large ripe banana per person
Cut the bananas into slices and sprinkle them with lemon juice to prevent them from turning black. Place the banana slices in a bowl, separating the layers with plastic wrap so they don't stick together, and place in the freezer for at least 3 hours.
Take the banana out of the freezer and leave it at room temperature for 5 minutes, then put it in the food processor or blender (in this case it should be powerful) and blend for 2 or 3 minutes, scraping the edges with a spatula every now and then to mix well, until a homogeneous cream is formed. Serve immediately.
The only detail of this homemade ice cream is that it must be prepared at the moment it is going to be consumed, because since it is made with frozen bananas, we cannot refreeze it. It has a super creamy consistency and takes the same time to melt as a traditional ice cream. If you have a sweet tooth, you can add chocolate chips, crushed Oreo cookies, chocolate sauce, etc.
