I’ve read about “One Ingredient Ice Cream” on a few cooking blogs.
What is that you ask?
It’s basically frozen bananas smushed beyond recognition to form an ice creamy texture.
It sounded easy, inexpensive and healthy. Why not try it?
I peeked some bananas and put them in a tupperware.
…Where does the name tupperware come from?…
I mushed them with a fork before they frozen so they would smash more easily when they were frozen.
Yes, mush and smash are proper cooking terms.
I froze the bananas overnight.
Then I pulled out the frozen “banana slab” and chopped it up with a sharp knife.
Then I used my trusty Kitchen Aid.
Note: I would wait a few minutes and let the banana thaw. Otherwise your blender will make sounds like a toaster thrown inside a washing machine. That may or may not have happened.
At first I was skeptical.
But then the texture started looking more like ice cream.
Looks promising, right?
I decided to test it out on my husband. After all, he heard the “toaster in the washing machine” noise and was wondering what I was up to.
It does look like ice cream.
However… it was quite the letdown.
This was my reaction:
My husband was a little bit nicer.
He said the strawberry I made tasted very nice.
We ate about 3 bites and promptly threw it away.
You win some, you lose some!
