Last week I made ice cream using the frozen banana method….
- Put some bananas in the freezer
- Take them out when frozen and peel
- Chop them up and put them in the food processor – at this time put in any additional fruit / flavour you would like
- Blitz till smooth and ice cream looking ~ now this can take a wee while and stop starting …you need to keep scraping the mix around as it does block the blades a fair bit but it took in the end about 10 minutes give or take.
Well I have to say….I used Blackberries in this one…which I have to say I wouldn’t recommend because of the pips!
It was OK but the banana flavour still came through – fine if you really like bananas ….me I’m not so keen …don’t get me wrong I don’t mind them but I was going for a different flavour, the blackberries didn’t quite get there. Needs to be a stronger tasting fruit.
Am thinking I might try it again but with mango or something like that needs a fruit that will take over the banana.
The texture was pretty good though and if I can just get rid if the banana taste it would be “syn free” ice cream that I can have on my healthy eating.
