Creamy, vegan and incredibly delicious is the popular nice cream. It is a healthy alternative to conventional ice cream, comes without added sugar and is very quick to make. Here I show you how to make the ice cream yourself from frozen bananas. You can find six delicious banana ice cream recipes here below.
The taste and consistency of your nice cream depends primarily on the bananas you use for it. After all, bananas are the main ingredient in a nice cream. You will get the best vegan ice cream if you use ripe bananas. Their peel should be covered with brown spots. Such bananas are ideal for a nice cream. Then the vegan banana ice cream will be really creamy and sweet. Unripe bananas contain too little fructose and are too firm. This can make the vegan ice cream not sweet enough and less creamy. Nice cream to make yourself is thus the perfect way to process overripe bananas.
How to freeze bananas properly
It is important to peel bananas before freezing. Cut them into slices so they freeze faster and you can portion them better later. Also, for a blender, you need banana chunks, not a whole banana. After you cut the bananas into pieces, put them in a tupperware or freezer bag and place them in the freezer. You should freeze bananas for at least 5 hours. It’s best to freeze them overnight so you can start making vegan ice cream the next day.
Healthy ice cream from frozen bananas
Banana ice cream is healthier than traditional ice cream, which contains milk, industrial sugar and possibly unhealthy additives. It is mainly made of bananas, which are rich in vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium and are fast energy sources. Moreover, due to the sweetness of bananas, the ice cream does not need any added sugar. Refined with berries or nuts, nice cream becomes even healthier.
Delicious vegan ice cream in 5 minutes
A banana ice cream recipe is probably the easiest and fastest ice cream recipe there is. All you have to do is put frozen bananas and possibly some fruit or nuts in a blender and blend until creamy. A delicious and healthy ice cream is ready! You should always have bananas in stock in the freezer so that you can make nice cream yourself as soon as you feel like it. Especially in summer it is worth freezing many bananas. So you can quickly conjure up a delicious refreshment on hot days.
The right blender for making banana ice cream
A powerful blender is very important for making nice cream. It must be able to quickly chop frozen bananas without them thawing and becoming watery. This will give you a really creamy vegan ice cream made from bananas. With a low-powered blender, you might take too long to chop the frozen bananas. This could make your nice cream too runny instead of creamy.
Serve and store banana ice cream
You should enjoy the finished nice cream immediately. Because only directly after preparation it has the best consistency and the best taste. If you let it stand, it will thaw quickly and become liquid. Banana ice cream is also less suitable for freezing. This is because it is too hard after that. And if you let it thaw a bit, then it becomes too watery and not creamy. In addition, the vegan nice cream then tastes less delicious.
Banana ice cream is so versatile
For the classic nice cream variant, you only need frozen bananas. Puree them and your ice cream is ready. But if you want to add some variety to your nice cream, you can refine it with a wide variety of ingredients – depending on your mood. For example, you can add fruits, nuts, cookies, cocoa powder, vanilla, nut puree or cinnamon to the frozen bananas and blend it together with bananas. You should also freeze the fruits beforehand, or buy frozen ones for this purpose. Among others with raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, sour cherries or mango you get a very fruity nice cream. Do you prefer a nutty ice cream? Then mix walnuts, pistachios or other nuts together with frozen bananas. You can make a chocolate ice cream by adding some cocoa powder to the bananas. Do you love your ice cream with chunks? First mash the frozen bananas to a creamy mass and then add coarsely chopped nuts, chocolate chips or fresh berries. 6 delicious banana ice cream recipe ideas I show you here below.
