Step-by-Step Instructions for One-Ingredient Ice Cream

Creamy ice cream from just one ingredient.

Pick a couple of ripe bananas. They should be sweet and soft but not too mushy.

Peel the bananas.

Cut them into coins.

Freeze the banana pieces for at least an hour or two.

Frozen hard!

Put the pieces into a food processor or blender.

Blend on high. Initially they will look crumbly and piecemeal.

The mixture will probably get stuck a lot. Keep scraping down the bowl.

Suddenly, as you keep blending, you will see a change.

The bananas turn creamy!

Now is the time to add a scoop of peanut butter or anything else you care to mix in.

The ice cream will be the texture of soft-serve, but if you freeze again in an airtight container,
it will get harder and more like regular ice cream.
