30 Second Banana Ice Cream


ripe banana icecream servedSure, you can make banana bread, banana muffins, banana cake and banana smoothies with fruit past its prime, but the problem with all of these delicious treats is that you need to act before the bananas are reduced to pulp in the fruit bowl.

For this recipe you store the bananas in the freezer until they’re needed

Simply peel your over- ripe bananas, cut them into chunks, pop the pieces  into a freezer bag, then store the banana in the  freezer until needed.

To make an amazing low fat, sugarfree treat for two adults……..

Blitz three frozen bananas with 2 tablespoons of yoghurt to a smooth cream in the food processor, serve immediately.

This “ice cream” will go grainy if refrozen , but it’s simple to make as needed.

This fantastic idea is adapted from a Donna Hay magazine.

    Tastes just like a banana paddle pop, only better. 🙂

    Placed my tired old bananas in the freezer this morning. I’m going to practice till my darling granddaughters arrive from interstate. They are staying for the Christmas holidays. If I have to taste test the experiments till I get it right, well, so be it. 🙂

    All the best cooks ‘tweak’, whether it’s their recipes or somebody else’s. I always begin by following the original recipe and then adjust it to suit me or experiment with it. As you know, Sandra, summer is on its way. No matter how fast I get stuck into those bananas, I never manage to eat them all. This will make a lovely way to use the leftovers up. Thanks.

      It was my grand daughters who told me about this recipe, their Mum makes it for them. I have tweaked, just cut it back to basics, it’s seriously delicious!

        I’m seriously trying it at the first sign of a heatwave. Who knows, I might not even bother to wait.

      It’s just a simple idea, yet tastes like the real high fat deal! 😉
