Homemade Banana Ice Cream

Hi!   Well, here we are again with ripey ripe bananas. What to do with them today….?  Maybe ice cream...?  Now that the days are getting warmer – well hotter, it really is time to pull out the ice cream maker.   I haven’t made banana ice cream before, but I do like bananas, and I do love ice cream, so let’s go…..

1-1/2 cups heavy cream
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 ripe bananas (to purée)

Peel and cut each banana in half and place in a food processor.   Run on high until pureed. 

Add to the pureed bananas the sugar and cream.    Run on medium until smooth.

Pour the mixture into a medium size bowl, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. 

Then, transfer the whole mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

The ice cream is, in my opinion best enjoyed when first made – it is the consistency of soft serve, and is smooth and delicious.  It can, however, be frozen for a harder chill and enjoyed that way as well.   We’ve actually had this batch in the freezer now for two days, and it is still yummy!

Enjoy !!!!!!
