2-Ingredient Nana Ice Cream; Banana-Almond Butter Scoop


banana ice cream



I love ice cream but try to avoid buying it outside, for the fear of adding calories. Who does not love creamy, butter ice cream? No one, I am sure.

I try to make it at home, with minimal sugar and cream.

Now I am presenting to you ice cream in a new avatar :)

This scoop uses just 2 ingredients - almond butter and chilled banana!

Now let's go to the recipe.
Before making this super quick ice cream, we will need to make almond butter.

Let's make almond butter first.
Ingredients

Almonds- 18-20
Oil- 1/4 tsp (or I added a few drops)
Cinnamon powder, elaichi (green cardamom) - you may increase the types of spices as per your choice


Procedure

  • It's super easy to churn out almond butter. Since I was making it for the first time, I took just a few almonds. You may increase the amount of almonds, as per the desired amount.
  • Dry roast almonds for a few minutes. Keep stirring so that you do not end up burning them too much.
  • Next let them cool down.
  • Then take a grinder and grind roasted almonds along with cinnamon and elaichi.
  • Once almonds are powdered, add oil and give it more churns in the grinder.
  • Be patient enough to keep grinding the stuff, as this will take a few minutes.
  • Keep churning until you get a greased almond butter :) That's it!!
  • I tasted it at this moment, and it was yum!! Control the temptation to taste it; else, you will be left with no almond butter.

Now let's make banana-almond butter scoop/ice cream. For that, you will need chilled bananas. Since I was making a small amount, I took just one banana.

Ingredients
1 ripe banana
1 tbsp almond butter (add more to increase the buttery/creamy taste)
Honey as per your taste...I added just a couple of drops

Procedure

  1. Slice banana into small pieces. Keep them in zip lock bags in a freezer. I kept the banana as a whole. But better to peel off the skin, cut into pieces and then freeze. You will get a better texture for your ice cream.
  2. Run the chilled banana pieces into the food processor. 
  3. When you get the creamy texture, add almond butter & honey and run the grinder again until you get the silky smooth texture.
  4. Garnish with almond flakes. Chill if you want.
  5. I kept it in freezer for 3-4 hours.
  6. Enjoy healthiest banana ice cream.
