How to make banana ice cream

We begin the recipe by weighing and measuring the ingredients. First of all, we whip the cream and store it in the freezer while we prepare the rest of the ice cream mixture.

Whipping the cream to make banana ice

In a blender or processor we put the banana, a little lemon juice, the salt, the maple syrup, the vanilla and we crush everything until we have a homogeneous cream.

We put ingredients in a

Little by little and without stopping beating we add the milk.

Add the milk to the banana ice cream

When we have a homogeneous and slightly thick cream, we also reserve it in the freezer for half an hour so that it cools down a bit and we can mix it with the cream. Carefully add the previous mixture to the bowl where we have the cream that is cold but not yet frozen.

The next step once we have the banana ice cream ready is to butter it, add air, which, as always, we can do in two ways.

We have the banana ice cream

If we have an ice cream maker, we pour the mixture into the bowl and butter the ice cream following the instructions of the machine.

Otherwise, we can do it in a homemade and artisan way and for this, we first keep it in the freezer. To add air and get a creamy ice cream, we have to stir it every half hour to break the crystals that form.

Homemade ice

We do this for at least 3 hours. Once we have achieved a creamy mixture, we store it in the freezer for two or three hours before serving.

Finally, we will decorate it with laminated banana and maple syrup or with dark chocolate. To make it easier for us to serve, we can make the balls and freeze them, and at the time of serving they are ready.
