After some trial and error, we came to this recipe for the "So-called Banana ice cream".
This is the strawberry-banana variation. So my hubs enjoyed this so much, that he went out and purchased more bananas to try new flavors. haha
- 4 bananas (2 sliced and frozen, 2 sliced but NOT frozen)
- 2-4 ounces of your "flavor" (see below)
- strawberry jam
- peanut butter (some honey with the peanut butter probably is a lot better tasting than straight up pb & bananas)
- chocolate syrup
- mangoes (we used the frozen mangoes, and if you use this one, use 8 ounces of frozen mangoes)
Slice up 2 bananas, then stick them in the freezer. After about an hour or so, slice up 2 more bananas and take the frozen ones out of the freezer. Throw all of the bananas (frozen and not frozen) into the blender. Add your "flavor" to the blender mixer and mix till consistency of a think milkshake. Then freeze for another 1-2 hours (or longer). Now you have the "So-called Banana ice cream."
So far my favorite was the banana/mango- as it was more of a sorbet than an ice cream. Most of these are more of that way, and not really "creamy" like most ice creams are, since there is no real milk involved. However this is a GREAT alternative to ice cream for those who are lactose or who are on Weight Watchers (bananas are zero points all!).
Have a happy day all!
