Five minute banana ice cream

Got an ice cream craving but don’t want all the guilt?

what you’ll need:

  • 2 small sliced bananas (or 1 large one),  frozen in advance
  • 1/2 glass of full fat cows milk
  • 1 little tot of vanilla essence

Give it a wizz for about a minute and voila! There you have it, rich creamy and delicious banana ice cream ready to delight your taste buds and kick your ice cream craving’s butt.  If you think 5 minutes was quick, see how fast you eat it up!

Might I add that I didn’t add extra sweetener.  Feel free to add some if you prefer.  There are recipes out there claiming that just blending a frozen banana and vanilla essence makes a delicious ice cream.  I beg to differ about that slimy mess that is totally not worth the brain freeze.  Adding half a glass of milk makes all the delicious difference and not that much more caloric expense.

I’ve popped it in the freezer to see if it stays ice creamy … lets hope.  I’ll post an update about that later.

Update:  The bad news is that after a couple of days in the freezer, the consistency was solid enough to be considered popsickle material, but definitely not scoopable ice cream.  The good news is that I could break it up with a butter knife, swirl it in the blender with a half glass of milk and that not only tripled the volume but came out even better than before 😀
