Single ingredient ice cream recipe

Yes you read that correctly, single ingredient ice cream

Ice cream made from a single ingredient.   So simple, even I can make it.

I recently exclaimed as I looked at another revolting dinner “I really can’t cook”.    J looked at me and said “yeah, you can mum”.

That’s lovely I thought

Until he then continued:  “just not very well”.


So when I heard two people talking about this earlier this week I just knew I had to try it.

Ladies and gentleman I give you banana ice cream containing nothing but banana.

Oh yes.

So for lactose intolerant / diabetics / rubbish cooks this is the one for you.

Simply slice bananas (there are five on this plate)

and then shove it in the freezer.

When they are frozen, remove them and place in a liquidiser to break them until they resemble breadcrumbs.

Then tip them into a bowl and stir them, magically they will come together and become creamy.

Totally creamy but without the cream!

Try it.  Go on.   Prepare to be amazed!

  • I have heard only excellent things about frozen bananas, I am going to have to try this for myself.

    • It is never going to compete with Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey but as something to do with kids that has a relatively healthy result, tis not bad. And it is kind of mind blowing. Let me know how you get on!

  • Oh yes, you’ve reminded me about this. Just popped some bananas in the freezer ready to pulp tomorrow.
