BANANA ICE CREAM - 9 RECIPES by Chocolate Covered Katie

Nine different flavour options of creamy vegan banana ice cream recipes that you can make at home, with just a few ingredients and a blender!

Total Time: 5 mins

Yield: 1-2 servings


Ingredients:

  • 2-3 overripe, frozen bananas

  • optional milk of choice, if needed

Step One:

Peel the overripe bananas, cut into pieces, and freeze them.


Step Two:

When the bananas are fully frozen, toss them into a food processor or high-quality blender and blend until you achieve a consistency that resembles soft serve. If your blender is having trouble processing, you can add 2-4tbsps milk of choice or another liquid.


Once the soft-serve texture is reached, you can eat it immediately or scoop it into a container and freeze an additional 30 minutes or so, then scoop out with an ice cream scoop. This will give you a firmer banana ice cream texture.



Different Flavour Options
