Make banana ice cream with just one ingredient
1. Freeze ripe bananas.
2. Blend the frozen bananas until they are ice cream consistency in a food processor.
It’s really that simple. The water-soluble pectin in bananas breaks down after blending, and the soft serve is created. Here’s our super simple banana soft serve if you need specific amounts. This recipe only has two ingredients, but the lemon juice adds a bit of extra flavor and makes it easier to blend.
