Banana popsicles. Culinary blog

This is an amazing ice cream in which there is only one component – a banana. It is hard to imagine that a banana without any additives can turn into a creamy dessert. It’s fantastic: ice cream without milk, without lactose, without sugar, without gluten. Well, just a healthy lifestyle dream!
It turns out that if you freeze the banana to hardness, and then grind it in a food processor, it will become creamy and will be quite viscous, like creme brulee.
Unlike other frozen fruits, which crumble and flow when grinding, a banana, on the contrary, becomes even more viscous than in its usual form.
Overripe bananas with a skin that has already begun to blacken are great for this recipe.
You will need:

  • 2 large ripe bananas

  • knife

  • cutting board

  • airtight container for freezing

  • blender

  • spatula

Peel the bananas and cut them into circles. Put the bananas in a container, close the lid and put in the freezer overnight.
Put the frozen banana in the blender bowl and grind it. The process will not be instantaneous: an ice banana is not very easy to chop.

Pause so that the blender rests and its engine does not overheat if you feel that the process of chopping an ice banana is being delayed.

Continue to work as a blender until the mass is completely homogeneous.
As a rule, grinding is carried out in several stages: first you see large unmilled pieces in the mass, then the mass becomes like oatmeal – it is viscous, but it still looks grainy in it, and only then it becomes smooth.

After the mass becomes perfect, do not stop the blender, give it a little more time to fill it with air bubbles.
Now the mass must again be transferred to a container and again put in the freezer for a couple of hours. Ice cream will be dense and viscous, balls can be easily formed from it.

PS: This ice cream can be not only one-component. You can add condensed milk, honey, peanut butter to it. As a topping, delicious add almond petals, cinnamon, berries, chocolate chips.
