One Ingredient Ice Cream

Say what?!  One ingredient!  You betcha.  This ice cream is fantastic, creamy, sweet, flavorful, and healthy.  The ingredient...bananas!  Who knew that something so dang healthy could replace my love for ice cream?!  I am excited to try some variations of this...this first time around I added a few tablespoons of nutella...tasted like a chocolate banana, yum!  See below for more variations to try :)

One Ingredient Ice Cream

2-3 ripe bananas

  1. Slice bananas into 1/2 inch slices and place on a small cookie sheet and freeze for 1 hour.
  2. Put the frozen banana slices into you food processor and puree until creamy.  You can scrape down the sides if needed.  Don’t worry, it takes a minute for it to all get creamy but it will happen.  Freeze for a few hours to get the texture of ice cream.

Other variations:

Strawberry version – just add 1 cup frozen strawberries for each banana and a little milk if needed.

Nutella version – add 3 -4 Tbsp of Nutella

Banana Peanut Butter – make like the chunky monkey minus the nuts and chocolate chips and add a little more peanut butter

Banana Chocolate Chip – make like the chunky monkey minus the PB and nuts

Banana Maple – add a Tbsp or two of maple syrup

Banana Chocolate – a 2 tsp of cocoa powder

Banana, PB and Chocolate – just make the banana chocolate version and a 2 Tablespoons of PB

Caramel Banana – add a Tbsp or so of caramel syrup

Chunky Monkey-

  • 2-3 ripe bananas (just depends on their size)
  • 1-2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp honey (for added sweetness)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1-2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
