  • Food Processor


  • Peel and slice bananas into 1"-2" slices.
  • Place banana slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for 6-8 hours. You can prepare ice cream immediately or place bananas in a Ziplock freezer bag until ready to use.
  • When ready to prepare ice cream, place frozen banana slices in a food processor (or high-power blender) and pulse until smooth and creamy. If it seems crumbly and not smoothing out, just keep blending. It will get there!
  • Serve as soft-serve immediately or place in a freezer safe container and freeze for another 2-3 hours to scoop and serve.
