One ingredient banana ice cream!

Posted on

Treats are hard on a few food diet and this post is just a short one to introduce the amazing revelation that is one ingredient banana ice cream – free from EVERYTHING other than banana!  It’s a Paleo/vegan favourite that we happened upon online and it is soooo good.  The first time our four year old had it she cried as she didn’t realise it would be cold, but that’s what happens when you can’t eat a lot of foods and have never experienced ice cream before.  I’m glad to say that it’s now a much anticipated treat!


Here’s what you need to do:

  • Peel an over-ripe banana, wrap it in a freezer bag and pop it in the freezer.  We keep a stock of them in the freezer nowadays.
  • When you want some ice cream remove it from the freezer and slice it up with a sharp knife.
  • Pop it in a blender and blend it up.  I’ve found that our small handheld blender works the best.  Initially it will go crumbly and then sticky and you’ll think it’s not going to work.  Keep blending and it will soon turn really creamy and silky.
  • Scoop into a bowl and eat!

You could easily add additional ingredients based on your own intolerances;  chocolate chips, vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon, other fruit, peanut butter, maple syrup to name a few.  We added chocolate chips to this version.  Hope you enjoy it!
