Eater’s Digest: Instant, Magic Ice Cream Recipe
by Rachel Mount
Banana Soft Serve
Peel a couple of ripe bananas and break in pieces; put in a plastic bag or container and freeze. (About 1 1/2 bananas per person is a nice serving size, but you can adjust to your taste.) When you’re ready to eat, toss them in a food processor fitted with the ‘S’ blade and whirl until bananas reach the consistency of soft serve ice cream, 3 to 5 minutes. If you’re feeling crazy, mix in a pinch of sea salt, a drop of vanilla extract, or a sprinkle of cocoa powder. Enjoy plain, or top with peanut butter or chocolate sauce.
Love it? Here’s my little secret: Sometimes I even make this for breakfast—it’s fantastic with pancakes or French Toast!
If you don’t own a food processor, Yonanas is a new appliance that runs about $50 and was designed specifically to make banana soft serve.
