How to Make Banana Ice Cream?

One of the best features of this Banana Ice Cream recipe is that you don’t need to use a fancy ice cream machine or expensive ingredients, all you need is a high-speed blender or food processor, some frozen bananas, and some liquid (be it plant milk, water or coconut water). That’s it. Amazing, right? You might not even need the liquid ingredient if your bananas have had a little time to soften up or if you have a really powerful blender.

Depending on how you freeze your bananas, you throw your banana slices (or chunks) into the machine you’ll be using for blending with the other ingredients (milk, vanilla, and agave) and blend or mix until smooth. You’ll be amazed at how creamy the end result is, so good! If you are adding any other ingredients then add them before mixing. Isn’t that a breeze? So easy and so rewarding and delicious.
