Help, Banana ice cream

If it just tasted like mashed banana then maybe it got too warm.

I just use a bit of cream and caster sugar and Vanilla added to the frozen banana and process quickly in the food processor. You could cool the bowl in the fridge too.

There was a recipe on FB that used frozen banana and mango, with almond milk. I cannot recall the quantities, but it sounded good. I make the grandies banana and mango smoothies which they love, but yet to,try the ice cream.

Donna Hay's programme on last week had a banana and mango icecream recipe Rarogal - she added Greek Yoghurt - said she makes it for the kids when it's really for herself!

You can add frozen berries, cocoa, carob etc. I would just try your food processor, that will work fine and is almost instant.

Here is one I have made for chocolate banana ice-cream, and it is good:

6 bananas (very ripe) frozen in chunks; 1 cup almond (or other) milk, 1 tsp vanilla, 6 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder, pinch of salt; In food processor, process all together for instant 'soft-serve' icecream, or if a firmer icecream desired, then put in fridge and stir every 20 mins until stiff.
(I have further instructions to turn this into a really decadent chocolate chunk brownie version too, if any interested)

Something else I have done is freeze pieces of banana on iceblock sticks, then dip in melted chocolate. Sort of a mini-not-really-magnum icecream.

Hi, I just use a couple of frozen bananas and about 2 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter. Whiz up with a bit of water, it creates a texture like snow freeze. Really yummy.
