Tips for The Best Ice Cream:

  • Bananas – Use ripe bananas to a naturally sweet ice cream. When I notice my bananas are getting to ripe, I place them in the freezer in a zip lock bag.
  • Frozen Fruit – If you have fruit getting bad, place in the freezer to make smoothies or ice cream.
  • Healthy Treat – No nee

We Made Strawberry Banana Ice Cream!

Strawberry Banana Ice Cream is one of our favorite combinations. The flavor of the two make the perfect ice cream. If you are wanting soft serve ice cream, then you can eat right out of the blender.

But it is just as easy to place the fruit blended ice cream in a container to freeze. It will take about 2 to 3 hours to freeze the ice cream. I like to make it the night before and then we freeze it overnight.

Do I need a Ice Cream Machine?

Prepare the homemade ice cream by using slice berries and add to your high power blender and blend until smooth.

  • Extra slice fruit

If you freeze the ice cream, allow it to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes to soften some before serving.  

This frozen treat will keep covered in the freezer for up to 1 month. This dessert is perfect to prepare ahead of time. If I know that I am serving a crowd, I like to make several batches at time.
