This really isn't a traditional ice cream with eggs or cream because it only has one ingredient: bananas! The smooth and creamy texture that the bananas create resembles ice cream so well and is a quick and easy shortcut to make "ice cream".
I had 5 ripe bananas, so I made banana bread, but I still had these 2 1/2 left. I wanted to try something new, so I made this recipe because you don't need a specific amount of ripe bananas; you can just use however many you have. I was surprised by how well this turned out, because I did not think that just pureeing bananas would create such a great product.
Once you have a few ripe bananas, slice them and freeze until almost frozen, about 2 hours.
Once your bananas are frozen, place them in a food processor and puree until smooth and creamy.
These thin ginger snaps tasted great with this, but it is great on its own as well.
The next time I have ripe bananas I will make this and try stirring in some chocolate chips! Or peanut butter chips. Or both!
