Banana Ice Cream in minutes

frozen banana

Do you have a whole lot of ripe bananas at home you're wondering what to do with in a hurry?? My best tip for this is to pop them in the freezer and save them for when you have a few minutes to blend up this outrageously yummy dessert. My recipe uses 2 bananas but you can use as many as you have in the freezer. 


Banana Ice Cream 

make about 6 small 'paddle pops' and some  leftover to lick the bowl after!


2 frozen bananas

2 tblsp plain greek or unflavoured yogurt (I prefer the Jalna brand)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp quality vanilla essence or powder 

a little warm water



Slice off the skin from your frozen bananas and cut into cubes. Place them all in your blender and add a generous splash of warm water, just enough to help with blending. Add your yogurt and spice. Blend. You can eat straight away as a frozen yogurt, or pour into paddle pop moulds and put in the freezer.  Wait for a good few hours and enjoy frozen like my lad does...
