Super quick banana ice cream

This is so easy, it's not really even a recipe. It's just a "how to" for making a delicious, super-quick, fat-free banana ice cream. And it's great for using up those bananas that have gone a bit black and mushy - just peel them, chop them then throw them in the freezer and you're ready to go. 

Super quick banana ice cream
Serves 2-3

4 peeled, chopped frozen bananas
Optional ingredients: honey, peanut butter, toasted crushed almonds

Put the frozen bananas into a food processor, and blitz them until smooth. They'll be a bit resistant at first, but keep the motor running for about 3 - 4 minutes, and they'll come together and get really creamy. And you're done!

It's delicious as it is, but you can add a tablespoon of honey (especially if you couldn't wait for your bananas to over-ripen before you put them in the freezer), peanut butter, or a sprinkling of toasted, crushed almonds.


  1. Hello - Can you re-freeze once you have blitzed the frozen bananas??

  2. Hi,

    Yes, as long as you've worked quite quickly the bananas stay frozen and you can just pop it back into the freezer when you're done.
