Banana “Ice Cream”

After hearing about this “recipe” several times and seeing lots of rave reviews online I couldn’t wait to give it a try. It certainly couldn’t be easier, and I found it to be really tasty as well. If you’re on the Weight Watchers program, since fruit is now “free” this is also a zero point dessert! Make sure your bananas are ripe before freezing to get the sweetest flavor out of them. You can make as much or as little of this as you’d like at a time simply by using more or less frozen bananas, so it’s an easy dessert or snack to throw together for a group or just for one! The ice cream tasted great on its own, but if you want to jazz it up you can add any fun toppings you’d usually enjoy on ice cream for additional WW P+ (pictured above with 1 tsp mini chocolate chips). The ice cream is pictured without toppings at the end of the recipe. Enjoy!

Banana "Ice Cream"

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe banana

Directions:

  1. Chop up banana into bite sized pieces and put into an airtight Ziploc bag. Freeze banana pieces for at least 2 hours. Once frozen, put banana pieces in a blender or food processor and blend until creamy.

Serving Suggestions:
This is yummy on its own (and 0 WW points!) but it’s always fun to add toppings. I mixed in 1 tsp of mini chocolate chips and it was delicious. You could also top with chocolate syrup, melted dark chocolate, FF Reddiwhip, nuts, sprinkles, caramel, melted peanut butter or anything else you’d put on ice cream (all for additional WW P+).

Weight Watchers Points Plus:
0 per serving (P+ calculated using the recipe builder on weightwatchers.com)

    I have plenty of well ripened bananas that I will be trying this with! Thanks for posting. I wasn’t sure what else I could use the bananas for other than banana nut bread… so not point friendly!

    Made it tonight for the first time – my family of 4 ate 5 bananas! It really does have a consistency like ice cream! My kids added mini chocolate chips and chocolate syrup.

    I made this and it was really good! However I have a question, I had a really hard time getting it to work in the blender without having to dig out frequently from the blades. Do you have any suggestions on how to help that… or a good blender?! :) Thanks for your blog, I’m enjoying all your recipes!

    Any suggestions on getting the texture to be creamy?? I tried this twice and maybe i’m freezing them too long but instead of creamy i get mushy and chunky
    :(

    Is the banana taste really strong?
