Banana Bread Ice-cream

Okay, confession time.  I’m not the biggest ice-cream fan. Don’t get me wrong, I like it – a lot – it’s just that cakes and doughnuts own my dessert heart, and when I do go for ice cream I’m boring and predictable and always pick mint chocolate chip. But, I like making it. It’s easier than you’d think, you don’t need an ice-cream machine and once you get the hang of it you can really play around and experiment with weird and wonderful flavours! Like banana bread flavour πŸ™‚

Banana Bread Ice-cream

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe (but not spotty!) bananas
  • 1 slice of toasted brown bread 
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 150 ml double cream
  • 284 ml full fat milk
  • (Handful of chopped walnuts to serve)
  1. Whisk the cream and milk together until combined.
  2. Throw all the ingredients into a blender and blitz until you get a smooth mixture.
  3. Pour the mix into a freezer proof container and then freeze, making sure to remove and stir thoroughly every 2 hours until completely frozen.
  4. Remove from the freezer for twenty minutes before serving, or pop the tub in the microwave for 30 seconds to loosen the mix.
  5. Serve in waffle cones with chopped walnuts. Yum! πŸ™‚

    1. It depends on the ingredients – bananas make a really good icecream just on their own I’ve heard – and you can usually substitute the traditional custard base (the tricky bit!) for condensed milk which just needs a stir every couple of hours πŸ™‚ it’s not too difficult once you’ve tried it a couple of times!
