I love this recipe so much! it is so incredibly simple and convenient, you have to try it. You must be thinking “how did you get a bowl of delicious creamy ice cream from two bananas and surely it can’t taste nice?!?!”

Well that’s where you’re wrong, this ice cream is so simple and tastes absolutely delicious even if you don’t like bananas! What I love about this recipe (well what I love most) is that you can just pop the banana in the freezer and then when your craving ice cream but don’t want to deal with the guilt you can just whizz it up and your ready! Another brilliant thing about this recipe is that its only 210 calories for a large bowl (2 bananas=1 large bowl)! This ice cream is so diverse, you can add whatever flavour you like (I made chocolate, banana and peanut butter). Of course when you add flavourings you add calories, but here are my top suggestions:

  • Cocoa powder (1 tbsp) – 12 calories
  • Nutella (1 tbsp) – 90 calories
  • Peanut butter (1 tbsp) – 94 calories
  • Vanilla extract (1 tsp) – 12 calories
  • Chocolate chips (5 tbsp) – 281 calories
  • Cacao nibs (5 tbsp) – 130 calories
  • Peppermint flavouring (1 tsp) – 40 calories
  • Strawberries (5 berries) – 19 calories

Please note these are just averages, but you can check calories on the labels of jars or tubs etc.

They were my ideas but do feel free to experiment and come up with amazing flavour combinations! So, here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • extra flavourings (optional)

Method:

  1. Roughly slice bananas and place in freezer bag/plate/tub.
  2. Leave to freeze for at least 3 hours (depending on how thin you slice the banana) or overnight.
  3. Blend bananas in a food processor for 3-5 minutes (you may need to scrape the sides every now and then), add flavours now if adding.
  4. Enjoy!

I hope you like this recipe and if you do try it please let me know in the comments! I will soon be posting a brownie recipe but at the moment I am still finding the perfect recipe. Please let me know in the comments anything you would like me to post!
