Hey!!!! Late at night and I'm looking at recipes :) so I saw on a blog, ice cream made with just frozen bananas... anyone tryed this? Does it work? It sounds strange how can a banana be turned into creamy icecream with nothing added??? So if anyone has tryed this PLEASE tell me about it cause I don't wanna make it if its gonna be just a banana puree (it sounds too good to be true) it was like a frozen banana blended....thanks :) it would be AMAZING if just a banana became ice low calories!!!

Hello Baker, it makes a creamy ice cream like concoction. I like to add frozen strawberries and just about 1/4 cup of milk. I have a Vitamix blender, so I can really push it down and the blades are strong enough to process frozen bananas and fruit. Bananas added to smoothies or turned into mock ice creams adds a creamy texture. Some people also add a little cocoa or peanut butter.

I also make a mock ice cream out of ice, cashews, and a little sweetener. You are welcome to look at my page for recipes. If you don't have a strong blender try making a mock milkshake out of frozen bananas. The chocolate one is my favorite.

Try "Amazing banana sorbet" using 3 cups of water instead of 1. I have a photo and review posted. Good luck!

Nummys! I just "found" some organic bananas, peeled them and put them in my Pa's freeezer. Thinking muffins and smoothies.
Apr. 3, 2013 12:06 am I've not made it my self about what you're asking in question to the banana ice cream. However, I have made this link for 5 minute ice cream and love love love it. I've taken several differnt berries and changed it up with adjusting the sweetness when needed....I bet taking some bananas, frozen, would probably turn out just awesome as well. I'm thinking...I'm going to try it tomorrow with banana and see what happens. Then ohhh add some peanut butter topping and some chopped nuts... ;-)hmm boy does that sound good right now

I like it. It's not icecream but is like the consistency of soft serve. It's sweet, creamy and cold. As noted above if you incorporate something else in it takes on that flavor as well. Cocoa and peanutbutter are 2 favorites. The idea is that's its a healthier frozen treat.

It is probably something more like a frozen smoothy. I wouldn't call it ice cream.
