Tuesday Tip: Bananas to Make Ice Cream

I have seen floating around the internet that a banana makes a great base for ice cream--just puree it, and there you have ice cream without the hassle of an ice cream maker!  Intrigued, I froze some bananas a few months ago and forgot about them (oops...).  However, I saw this recipe for nutella banana ice cream on Pinterest (obsessed!) and knew that for World Nutella Day (February 5--today, seriously!!!), I HAD to make it because my family loves Nutella and bananas!  No brainer!

{I might have been caught a few times in childhood/adulthood eating this with just a spoon........}

{Add Nutella, cocoa, and milk}

{Delicious Nutella Banana Ice Cream!}

Nutella Banana Ice Cream

Serves 4


4 bananas, frozen
8 tablespoons Nutella
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons milk
  1. Place everything in a blender/food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Serve immediately for a soft serve consistency or place in a container and refreeze for 1 hour for firmer texture.
This mixture doesn't freeze hard (like a brick); it was perfectly scoopable!  Great for a quick treat without the calories!
