  • 2 large ripe bananas


  1. Peel and slice bananas; place in a plastic bag and freeze for 4 hours or until solid.

  2. Place frozen bananas in a food processor or high-powered blender; cover and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed, approx. 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Serve immediately, or store in the freezer in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Recipe Notes

  • Use ripe to slightly overripe bananas for just the right amount of sweetness.
  • Add flavor by blending with ingredients like frozen berries, nut butter, cinnamon, cocoa powder, or pure vanilla extract; or stir in ingredients like nuts or cacao nibs after nice cream is blended.
  • Allow nice cream that has been stored in the freezer to sit out at room temperature for approx. 15 minutes to soften before scooping.
