Why Banana Nice Cream Will Be Your New Favorite Dessert

Why Banana Nice Cream Will Be Your New Favorite Dessert

Did you know that you can perform a culinary magic trick with a couple ingredients? As long as you have a high-speed blender or food processor, you have the ability to turn a banana into ice cream. When you blend a frozen banana, you achieve a wonderfully creamy consistency. Frozen bananas are perfect smoothie ingredients to achieve maximum creaminess, but they also make the perfect ice cream base. 

Banana nice cream, as it has become known, is a healthy alternative to classic dairy-laden, sugar-rich ice creams. Most people like to sit down after a long day and enjoy a scoop, or two, or three, or a pint of ice cream. All of that dairy and sugar consumption can lead to a lot of mucus accumulation, fat storage, or poor digestion. Instead, sit down with a dessert that you can enjoy guilt-free!

How To Freeze Bananas:

This seems like a no-brainer, but there is a specific technique to help make your life infinitely easier. First and foremost, never freeze your bananas with the peels on, well, unless you want to struggle. Always peel the bananas prior to freezing them. Once you peel the bananas, slice them into half-inch thick rounds. You don’t have to get a ruler out to measure each slice, but make them roughly that size. Using four or five bananas at a time, place the slices on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and place it in the freezer overnight. Remove the bananas in the morning, transfer them to Ziploc bags, and then keep them in the freezer until you are ready to use them. The reason for slicing them is because smaller frozen banana pieces break down quicker during the blending process and help you achieve a thicker, creamier ice cream.

How To Make Banana Nice Cream:

Once you have your frozen banana slices, the next step is to use your high-speed blender or food processor. There is no need for an ice cream maker, folks! Follow whichever recipe you decide on and add the frozen bananas to processor. Then you can add more ingredients to flavor your nice cream. A few popular ingredients include raw cacao powder, grade A maple syrup, raw almond butter, raw agave nectar, or certain fruit.
