5 second Banana Ice Cream!

Not only does it take 5 seconds to make it, you only need 3 ingredients AND you can make it without an ice cream maker! *Gasp* Hold onto your hats folks because this thing is legit!

I totally didn't take any pictures because I was just goofing around, but y'all. It turned out delish! I made a small single serving, but wish I had made a larger one. For myself. Don't judge. I told the hubster about this ice cream a minute later and he said wanted a bite. Um. I totally devoured it in the kitchen. Out of the food processor. My feet never left their spot from start to consumption. So there was definitely no sharing going on. I said, Don't. Judge! Sheesh! Y'all are horrible listeners. At least y'all are awesome readers! <3

The recipe below is for 1 serving, but you might as well go ahead and double your intended serving size because let's be honest. You'll want more than just one serving. Now, let's (attempt to) cool off from this 105 degree weather. Darn Texas heat!!

Banana Ice Cream
I can't remember where I originally saw this recipe, but if you know, let me know so I can give appropriate creds and props to em!!

½ ripe banana, sliced and frozen (you can use any fruit or a combination of them)
1 tsp vanilla extract
A splash of soy milk (or whatever milk you prefer)

1.  Peel and cut your banana into ¼-½" slices. Place banana slices in freezer until frozen.

2.  Place your frozen banana slices, milk, and vanilla extract into your food processor. I used a mini one we received at our house warming 3 years ago and it was the perfect size. Feel free to use the big momma one you received off your wedding registry because it might be collecting dust and is crying to be utilized. Or if you don't have a food processor, a blender works just as good I'm sure! Pulse the food processor/blender until everything is smooth and well blended to the consistency of your liking. Add more milk, if desired.

3.  Scoop, top with toppings, if desired, and serve! Or if you don't feel like sharing, consumption straight out of the food processor/blender is completely acceptable also!
It looks a lil something like this!


  1. I hate bananas but I wonder how it would turn out with strawberries? May have to give it a try
