Homemade Banana Ice-cream (Easy and Quick)

Again, here’s my favourite dessert made by bananas! Yes, bananas are on sale right now. I’ve got heaps of ripe bananas at home. This recipe might sound a bit indifferent to your feelings if you live in Northern Hemisphere. Pardon me if so. The weather is too warm down under here. So I like to have something to make myself feel refreshing.

This banana ice-cream is pretty easy and quick to make. No need to cook any custard. And the texture of the ice-cream is really creamy and smooth. Best of all, it’s homemade, full of natural banana flavours. I think it could be a fantastic dessert after our Christmas dinner tomorrow.

Prepare an ice-cream maker

Ingredients:
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 200 ml milk
  • 100 ml heavy cream
  • 50 gm caster sugar

Homemade Banana Ice-cream Procedures

Method:
  1. Mash the banana in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Mix in the milk, heavy cream and sugar.
  3. Pour the mixture into ice-cream maker and freeze it according to the manufacturer's instructions, about 20 minutes.
  4. Once the ice cream has been formed in the ice cream maker, it would be quite soft in texture. Transfer to an air-tight plastic container and place in the freezer for several hours until the ice-cream is frozen. Or you might like to have it after freezing for an hour or so.

  2. So easy. I like it because it's eggless and yolkless. I sometimes hate to be left with just egg whites and not knowing what to do with them. Thank you Christine!

  14. Ooo... I think I should shop for the ice-cream maker too. But can still go without it! There's an ice-cream powder which I could get it from the specialty shop easily.

  17. Delicious! We really need to get a replacement paddle on our ice cream maker! The broken one has been keeping us from homemade ice cream deliciousness for too long!
