Banana Ice Cream Recipe
Over-ripe bananas and tired of banana nut bread? Here's a Banana Ice Cream recipe that will have everyone gathered around the bowl with spoon in hand!
You can get really creative when it comes to garnishing this ice cream. You can add marshmallow creme or whipped cream and a cherry with some graham crackers. Cover it with some pineapple ice cream topping or top it with shredded coconut and some chocolate chips! When the ice cream comes out of the ice cream maker, stir in some peanut butter or chocolate chips before freezing overnight. You are only limited by your imagination.
Here's what you are going to need:
1 1/4 cups of milk
4 egg yolks
1/4 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 1/4 cups of heavy cream
2 large over-ripe bananas
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
Here's what you need to do:
Whisk together the egg yolks and sugars in a medium bowl. Set aside.
In a medium pot, over medium heat, heat the milk until it begins to bubble around the edges of the pan.
Slowly pour about half of the milk into the egg yolk mixture while stirring. Mix well. Pour everything back into the pot with the rest of the warm milk.
Reheat until bubbles again begin to form around the edges of the pot.
Remove from heat and pour back into the bowl. Add the heavy cream.
Mash the bananas with a fork. If you prefer a smooth ice cream with no chunks of banana, puree the bananas in a blender before adding to the mix. Add to the mixture. Mix well using a spoon.
Mix in the 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
Cover and refrigerate until cold...at least 3 to 4 hours.
Pour into the cylinder.
Freeze using the directions on your ice cream maker.
Stir in the walnuts and transfer to a plastic container. Smooth the ice cream out evenly, cover with an airtight lid and freeze overnight.
