It turns out that frozen bananas are good for more than just dipping in chocolate. If you are freeze a banana until a solid, then whiz it up in a blender or food processor, it gets creamy and a little gooey, just like custard ice cream .
- 4 ripe bananas, peeled
- Slice the banana into chunks and put them into a freezer-proof container.
- Put the container in the freezer.
- When ready to make the ice cream, put the frozen banana pieces into a food processor and pulse to break them up into small pieces. Scrape down the sides of the food processor, then blend until the banana is smooth and creamy, stopping regularly to scrape down the sides.
- Eat immediately for a soft-serve consistency or put it back into a freezer-proof container and freeze for 1 hour until hard.
