Making your own icecream is so much better than store-bought. All the usual reasons for cooking from scratch apply: more flavor and only natural ingredients. If you’ve never made your own icecream before, banana is a good flavor to start with as the banana really helps to achieve a great texture even without adding eggs. All you need is bananas, whipping cream, sugar and a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice!
Please make sure to use ripe bananas for this, as it makes a huge difference. Ripe bananas are yellow with small brown spots (like freckles). The result will have an amazing banana taste.
For 4 generous servings
450 grams (1 pound) ripe bananas
100 grams (1/2 cup) vanilla-scented sugar (created by keeping vanilla beans in your sugar jar)
250 ml (1 cup) whipping cream
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
Puree all ingredients together in a blender until completely smooth. Refrigerate for an hour or more, tightly covered.
Pour the mixture into your icecream maker and let it churn at the highest speed for a more airy result.
And that’s all! The most wonderful banana icecream you’ve ever tasted is ready to serve.
This goes well with a yellow-colored sweet muscat wine, as opposed to amber-colored muscat wines that are less fruity.
