One Ingredient Banana Ice Cream

Prep time



Can you guess what the one ingredient is?! Ground breaking, I know – haha! Back in the day, I used to make this banana ice cream for dessert weekly – and I truly don’t know why I stopped, it’s so delicious! The key to this recipe is committing & to *keep* blending. It’s going to seem like it’s not working – but just stick with it, and you will eventually get that thick, creamy ice cream texture. You will need a high quality/powerful blender or food processor for this process to work properly. I love to top this cream with chocolate chips, cacao nibs, granola or sometimes I even add peanut butter!


  • 2 frozen bananas


  • Cut the ripe bananas into 2 to 3 inch chunks and place them in a bag and place into the freezer overnight.
  • Place the frozen bananas into a powerful blender or food processor. Pulse to break up & blend.
  • The texture will go through many phases & it will feel like it’s not working – but keep going! It will look crumbly, but keep pulsing. It will then start to get a little gooey/smooth – keep blending. 
  • In-between the stages of texture you see, scrape the sides of the blender or food processor down to keep the banana in the center.
  • Eventually, you’ll see the texture shift and a creamy, soft-serve ice cream texture will appear! Blend for a few more seconds.
  • Scoop out, top with any desire toppings & serve immediately!
