Homemade Banana Ice cream (???)

The other day, when I was searching for a simple & good recipe for "Homemade Sweet lassi", I found a recipe for making banana ice cream at home, using just one ingredient - bananas! The recipe looked easy enough, so I thought I'd give it a try. I made it yesterday for dinner dessert. Honestly speaking, it didn't really look like ice cream to me, but you can see for yourself. This is the recipe for the homemade banana ice cream...


For the Homemade Banana Ice cream:


INGREDIENTS:
3 over-ripe bananas

METHOD:

  • Cut the bananas into pieces and put them in the freezer for 1 and 1/2 hours. I forgot to take them out in time, so they had to spend like 3 hours in the freezer!


  • Remove from freezer and blend in a food processor till they become smooth & creamy. Mine apparently got too frozen or something, because they adamantly remained solid pieces in the food processor. So I had to add a few spoonfuls of milk into it.


  • Re-freeze the creamy custard-like stuff for a couple of hours. Then blend it again in the food processor. Because of that extra 1 & 1/2 half hours wasted in the first round of freezing, I didn't have enough time left before dinner. So I could give it only half an hour at this stage.

  • Serve your homemade banana ice cream in bowls and garnish as you wish. I've used a bourbon biscuit for the garnishing... I just crumbled the chocolate filling on the top and stuck the two biscuit layers along the side of the bowl!

Dad reckons it didn't turn out like proper ice cream because I added milk to the bananas and then I didn't let it freeze for full 2 hours the second time around. He suggests I should try it again, but I think I'll pass on this one. It was just too banana-ish for me, if you know what I mean! And it reminded me of the mashed bananas we feed little babies! (Yucks!) I think I'll just stick to plain old custard-jelly next time! But if any of you try out this recipe for homemade banana ice cream, do let me know how it went for you.

Tasted like extra sweet bananas! Was edible enough, some would like it, I suppose.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...
