My dad and my maternal grandmother LOVED this easy banana ice cream recipe. Of course it is full of potassium, and since bananas are so sweet on their own, most people don’t need to add any sugar, plus you don’t need heavy cream — you can even use lowfat milk — so it’s healthy and great even if you are trying to watch your figure.
For those of you who might not already know, or as a reminder, the second annual ice cream roundup is this Friday at Joy of Desserts. You are all invited to participate. There were lots of great recipes last year, so don’t miss out. (Stop by Joy Of Desserts to enter my latest giveaway, too!)
Banana Ice Cream Recipe

juice of 1 lemon
2 cups thin cream or milk
sugar to taste
a few drops banana extract (optional)
Peel bananas and mash them, combining the juice of 1 lemon. Add sugar, if desired. Add cream or milk and blend thoroughly. You can use a fork, or blender/processor for increased smoothness. Freeze according to your ice cream maker manufacturer’s directions.
