Believe it or not, you only need one ingredient to make rich and creamy mock ice cream — frozen bananas! Once the purée reaches soft-serve consistency you can fold in your favorite add-ins; chopped nuts, chocolate chips, creamy peanut butter, and crushed biscotti all taste great with this ice cream.
Don’t be worried if the bananas appear gooey or chunky as you purée them; in just a few more seconds they’ll blend into a smooth and creamy treat.
- 4 ripe bananas
Slice the bananas into ½-inch-thick coins and then place them in a resealable plastic bag. Squeeze the air out of the bag, seal it, and place it in the freezer. Freeze the bananas until solid, at least 4 hours.
Blend the frozen bananas in a food processor or blender until they reach the consistency of soft-serve ice cream, occasionally scraping down the sides of the food processor bowl with a rubber spatula.
Place the ice cream in an air-tight container and freeze until solid.
