DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

hey dolls!

just wanted y'all to know that if you chop up banana's then freeze them then take an amount you want blend it, you will have a delicious ice cream substitute that tastes even better then the real thing! (my opinion) I think this is a perfect option for everyone and fits everyone's dietary needs.

 

1.) chop up bananas (little banana coins)

2.) place in a plastic tub and freeze for at least two hours

3.) get out a small amount of the coins (do not make more then you can eat because if you try to refreeze the pre-made version it does not taste as good)

4.) blend and ta da!!!! I hope all of my BTFF's enjoy this!

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

I LOVE doing this! I actually like eating the frozen cut-up bananas as well (with peanut butter or almond butter). Thanks for making me hungry! Smiley Tongue

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

LOL, yay banana groupie! I will have to try that too!

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

While the fat content is negligible an average sized banana has about 14g of sugar.  It's no sugar added but certainly not sugar free.

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

@bratknits we obviously know its not sugar free in natural sugar because, duh. I menat processed sugar and yes it is fat free.....if you have negativity to add, add it somewhere else, I think the average person knows the difference between fruit sugars and sugarcane/processed sugars.

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

It's not negativity to correct misinformation.  Bananas a a fairly high sugar fruit and do not fit a number of people's dietary needs for that reason.

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

Thank you for saying this, and I didn't think it was mean, but useful.  Bananas are very high on the glycemic scale and people who are diabetic or avoiding sugar for other health-related reasons need to be aware.  There is so much misinformation out there.

 

The sugar in bananas and "processed sugar" (simply boiled and filtered, as it has been for hundreds of years) and corn syrup is metabolized the same.  Your pancreas doesn't know the difference.  

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

Thanks for sharing your recipe.  I'm sure it tastes fantastic and probably more healthful than ice cream.  

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

It looks delicious - I wish I liked bananas (they are number one of my list of foods I don't like. ACK PHOOIE!). I wonder if it would work w/ any other fruit  - like pineapples, or if you added a little almond milk or something....

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

wow is that photograph of teh blended bananas??  it really looks like ice cream!  what a great idea.  i definitely want to try this sometime soon!  maybe with hot fudge, or blend in some strawberries too!  thanks for sharing!

 

p.s. have you tried mushing with a spoon rather than using a blender?

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

@annekevdb honestly the banana flavor is hardly noticeable! it just tastes like plain ice cream! I don't know if it would work with anything else since other fruits do not contain the same consistency and texture as the banana but experiement and let us know!

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

no problem sugarsnaps, im glad you love it Smiley Happy

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

@drrragon unfortunately it is a necessity to use a blender as the rock hard banana's cant be grinded up any other way, I hope this helps Smiley Happy

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

I had to look it up just to confirm, but there is a machine on the market that specifically makes banana-based ice cream - Yonanas.  I used to see on on TV but have recently started to see it stores like Bed, Bath & Beyond.  (Just to clarify: Londlover101's recipe works fine without the machine.  The machine is just a gimmick but apparently one that has gained popularity.)

 

@annekevdb - you can get this to work with all frozen fruits.  Most of them will come off more like sorbet/sherbet since the consistency of a banana is what gives it the creamy, ice-cream-like texture.  Certain fruits won't work as well (though I've never found one that outright doesn't work) - pineapples tend to come off more granita-like than having a creamy texture, for example.

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

I bought a Yonanas after one of my coworkers told me her daughter in college bought one. I like it.

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

Smiley Sad I apologize if I came off as telling people they need to justify their purchases of this machine.  I've bought (and liked) many gimmick-y items so sometimes tend to forget people have bad connotations with the word.

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

I have some frozen pineapple.... Might just give it a try. 

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

Sounds delish!  One my favorite frozen treats is freezing a peeled banana and then slicing the frozen banana and putting on the freezing chocolate shell (found in most grocery stores by the ice cream section.) Frozen chocolate covered bananas! Totally delicious, although probably not SUPER healthy. Smiley Happy Oh well. 

I never thought of just blending up plain frozen bananas. I'll have to try that. Smiley Happy

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

I tried it before and didn't like it, but does it matter  what stage they are?? As in slightly spotted or full on brown????? Does it make is diff???

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

I would think that the browner they were the sweeter it would taste. Smiley Happy 

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

You would think so, but I wonder how the texture changes?? Mine didn't looks as pretty as that picture ...

Ps I love your new avatar picture too!!!!!!

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

Oh thank you!!! Smiley Happy 

And that's a great point - the texture probably changes. I didn't think of that! 

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

Sounds great! Thank you for this.

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

To make it even yummier (although less healthy):

 

3 ripe bananas (frozen)

1 tsp cocoa powder

1/2 tsp vanilla

spoonful of peanut butter or Nutella

 

It's so so good.

Re: DIY: one ingredient, fat free,sugar free, vegan delicious ice cream!

Mmmmm, that Nutella sounds super delicious, plus it wouldn't matter if your banana mixture browned. Smiley Happy mmmmmmm
