Fresh Banana Ice Cream

My kids and I have a new favorite afternoon treat! It's a great way to use those brown bananas and with Spring right around the corner, this will be nice on those warmer days. It's super easy and only takes about 2 minutes to make if you already have frozen bananas. You can be creative with the toppings you pair with the bananas too. Just about anything works.

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • Mix-in(s): We used 2 tablespoons of 60% cacao chips. Other ideas would be peanut butter, strawberries, honey, raspberries, blueberries, coconut. Really just about anything you would like.


  1. Cut the banana into 1/2 inch pieces. Separate and put on a plate. Cover with foil and put it in the freezer. I usually do this the night before so we don't have to wait for them to freeze. If you haven't done that, let them freeze for about an hour.
  2. In a food processor or heavy-duty blender, pulse the bananas with the topping(s) for about a minute, or until the bananas start to come together. 
  3. Enjoy!
