Author Notes: Making one-ingredient ice cream couldn't be simpler. It comes out like the frozen bananas you ate at the boardwalk as a kid, except (thanks to the high pectin content) it whips up like Marshmallow Fluff. Vegan and raw foodists have long known this trick, but a few years ago, The Kitchn published a photo tutorial and one-ingredient ice cream went mainstream. Bloggers spread the gospel and suddenly it wasn't just a workaround for ice cream, but an exciting dessert in its own right, regardless of its pure reputation. —Genius Recipes
- Peel your bananas.
- Cut them into small pieces.
- Freeze for just 1-2 hours on a plate or tray. (Or leave them in the freezer indefinitely -- just let them thaw a little before making the ice cream.)
- Blend, blend, blend in the food processor -- scraping down the bowl when they stick.
- Enjoy the magic moment when they turn into ice cream! Try mixing in other fruits, nut butters, or chocolate.
