Banana Icecream

Icecream is a food from heaven in this sweltering hot weather. So here is banana icecream. I know what your are thinking. Icecreams are hard to make. They use lots of cream so are very high calorie. And who can make an icecream without an icecream maker. Right?

I say you need only one ingredient for banana icecream. Any other ingredient is absolutely optional. You need bananas and a food processor and you are good to go. This is the easiest banana dish, which is full of the banana goodness.




Take some bananas. Overripe ones will do too. Slice bananas and pop them into the freezer for a couple of hours. When they are almost frozen, not soft, but extremely hard either (you don't want to break your food processor), take them out and put them into your food processor. Start your food processor. Initially it would be coase, you might need to scrape bananas down the sides. Then it will start getting creamy. At this point you can add condensed milk to it (see note). Process until you have a creamy banana mass. At this stage it will be a soft serve icecream. Put it in the freezer to harden or until reasy to serve.


Note:.If you like you can add condensed milk to it. Infact you can put in a variety of things. If an ingredient needs to be well blended into the icecream, you can add it when bananas start to get creamy. If you want to add fruit pieces like sliced bananas, you can add them when you take your icecream out of the processor.
