Easy, One-Ingredient Ice Cream

One-Ingredient Ice Cream

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Freezer time: 3 hours
  • Total Time: 3 hours, 10 minutes


This ice cream is bananas– literally! Frozen bananas make the perfect base for a sweet, frozen treat. Add cinnamon-sugar, peanut butter, or Nutella for a fun twist.


3 medium ripe bananas (just beginning to show brown spots on the peel but the insides have not yet begun to brown– not underripe but also not as ripe as you would use for banana bread)

peanut butter


Slice or dice bananas into small pieces (to make the blending part easier) and place in freezer until frozen through, at least a few hours.

Place frozen banana chunks into a food processor and blend.  Depending on the size of your food processor, the amount of bananas, and how frozen they are, you may have to stop it a few times and scrape and mush the mixture around. I’ve had to do that every time.

The mixture may look crumbly and resemble cous cous. Just grab a spatula, stir it, and watch as it transforms into perfect soft serve banana ice cream.

If using, blend in your desired add ins to taste and serve.
