I'm afraid I can't claim this as an original recipe, but it is one of my favourite things to do when I am craving something sweet and do not want to feel too guilty after... ;) Also, if somehow you end up with few bananas going a bit too ripe before you can eat them, it is a great way to save them! To be honest, my bananas sometimes do not even make it from being frozen to ice-cream... I just eat the slices with some melted dark chocolate!
Ripe bananas (would recommend 2 per person)
Optional: dark chocolate chips, almonds or any other nuts.
Cut ripe bananas into slices and freeze them. I use freezer bags and stack them neatly, so it is easy to just grab a few slices (if you can control yourself, unlike me).
Add bananas to the food processor and blend them until smooth (picture below - yes, it does get everywhere and it is sticky).
Occasionally scrape down the sides and continue to blend until smooth, approximately 3-5 minutes. It takes a bit of patience if you are using a small processor like mine. If making it for more than one person, I make each portion individually and put it back in the freezer while I finish other bits.
Scoop into a bowl and enjoy! If I'm feeling fancy, I sprinkle dark chocolate (85%) chips and grate some almonds on top.
If you like a firmer ice-cream, place in an airtight freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 1 hour.
