Growing up when my mom would make homemade ice cream, she would usually make banana…
I loved it!
She wouldn’t use heavy cream or sweetened condensed milk, it was made with skim milk and cool whip and it was perfect.
One day soon I will whip up a batch of this nostalgia…
However, the recipe I have for it was for a 4 quart rock salt ice cream maker… and our new little cuisinart makes 1 1/2 quarts (no salt or ice… yippee!) and well… I stink at math 😉 so I decided to go an easier route and turned to twitter…
Mandy’s recipe was just what I was looking for! It was on the healthier side and was made with ingredients that were already in my fridge.
I took three ripe bananas
One individual vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 Cups Skim Milk
1/2 Cup Sugar
Let the very excited 3 year old press the blender buttons.
Blend until smooth
Pour into the ice cream maker
Get things a stirring and explain to the anxious 3 yr old that it is going to take a few minutes (about 20). I have to give it to the girl… she waited patiently for the canister to freeze overnight…
Yum! I couldn’t believe how creamy this was given that it was made with skim milk.
Now, to set it up a bit more, place in a container and put shrink wrap or press and seal down on it to prevent ice crystals from forming.
Put a lid on it and by tomorrow we will have scoopable “ice cream” for Addie’s cone 🙂
