  • 2 large bananas sliced and frozen


  • Peel bananas and slice into rounds. Lay flat on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours, or until solid. The longer you can freeze them the better.
  • Place the frozen banana slices in a food processor. Pulse to begin crumbling the banana pieces. Keep pulsing and scrape the sides down if you need to.
  • Once the banana starts to get smooth and the chunks are disappearing, turn your food processor on and process until you get a magical soft-serve ice cream consistency.
  • Add any mix-ins and pulse to mix.
  • If you want a really soft-serve consistency, you can eat it right away. Otherwise, put it in an airtight container and freeze it until solid for a more traditional ice cream consistency. Enjoy!
