I’ve been making 2-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream without an ice cream maker since the boys were little. Sometimes I’m just too lazy to drag my ice cream maker out of the cabinet. Other times I’m too impatient to wait 40 minutes for the ice cream to churn. This recipe solves both of those issues.
Making ice cream in the food processor is easy peasy! Especially since I keep this multi-tasking appliance out on the counter, ready to go at all times. For this recipe, I simply toss in both the ingredients, press a button, and moments later have incredible soft serve ice cream. If you’ve been wondering how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker this easy summer dessert recipe is for you!
2-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream is one of my boys’ favorites and they ask for this “instant soft serve” ice cream all summer long. I love that the boys are eating something simple and healthy that is purely fruit sweetened. Have you seen the junk teenagers eat? It’s appalling.
I keep frozen bananas in my freezer for my family so that I can whip up this instant ice cream at a moment’s notice. The boys love snacking on frozen bananas during the summer and also use them when they make smoothies. My younger son, now 17 and well over 6 feet tall, especially loves whipping up smoothies with the vanilla protein powder that Mark Sisson sent us!
- 10 ounces frozen bananas, cut into ¼-inch slices
- ½ cup heavy cream
- Place bananas and cream in food processor and pulse
- Remove lid and break up mixture if necessary
- Pulse until smooth
Frozen bananas, or bananas of any sort, are not at the top of my list right now. Why? Because I’m following a low-carb high-fat (LCHF) diet. If you’re in need of Ketogenic Recipes you’ve come to the right place. I have an entire Keto Diet Recipes page to take care of all of your low-carb desires! Keto Brownies and Keto Bread are all-time favorites that get rave reviews from my low-carb fans!
I’ve been chatting with many of you about LCHF diets versus the Paleo Diet over on Instagram. If you’re not into social media, leave a comment here and let me know which type of eating plan you prefer!
