Banana ‘Ice Cream’


This recipe is gloriously simple. Take a few bananas, freeze ’em and blitz them in the food processor. Done. A tasty, healthy treat.

Should you wish to build on that basic recipe, simply add whatever else you fancy – peanut butter, maple syrup, chocolate, cocoa, nuts, fruit.. the list goes on. In this version, I added a tablespoon of peanut butter per banana and half a teaspoon of vanilla.



  • 1 banana per person
  • Anything else you fancy (optional)


  1. Grab your bananas, peel them, and slice them into half inch rounds. Put them into a freezer bag until frozen.
  2. Chuck the frozen bananas into a food processor, along with any optional extras you want, and blitz them until the mixture is creamy and smooth (you may need to grab a spatula occasionally and push the mixture down off the sides of the bowl).
  3. Eat immediately (it starts melting quite quickly) or pop back into the freezer to eat later.
