Frozen Banana Ice Cream Recipe

This frozen banana ice cream recipe is perfect for dessert or as a cool summer treat. It’s delicious and can be made without an ice cream maker!

All you need is a food processor to make this, and after the bananas are frozen, it only takes a few minutes to whip this up.

This is a plain recipe, but you can add your favorite spices like cinnamon and nutmeg and/or protein powders. And if you like nuts in your ice cream, you can do that too!

What makes this banana ice cream taste so great is a bit of heavy whipping cream. There’s just something about bananas and cream that makes my world go around! If you have an allergy, or don’t want the cream you can omit it and still have a tasty ice cream that the entire family will enjoy!

I also have to warn you that it’s very sweet and if you wanted to, you could make this without the honey as well.

How to Freeze Bananas

  1. Peel and slice bananas about half an inch thick.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  1. Several years ago, I tried frozen banana in the blender to make ice cream, as I had seen on TV, and it was so bitter and bland with just bananas. Nice to have this to see other ingredients to add it.
