This is NOT ice-cream

19 Jul

I found a recipe on the internet that said you could make easy ice-cream just using some ‘on the turn’ bananas. Simply cut them into chunks and freeze them, and when you wanted some fruity ice-cream just push them through a blender and voila. Cold treats with ease.

I gave it a go, I had browning bananas which I froze ready for the big day – as the weather has been so hot I thought my son would appreciate some ice-cream and so into the bullet blender they went. (I love my bullet).

Of course me being me I could’t resist adding a little something extra to it (also not believing frozen bananas ice cream make) and so a couple of strawberries, syrup and a squirt of squirty cream.

After what seemed like endless blending – frozen bananas do NOT give up to the blades that easily – I ended up with this:

Watery pink liquid with a lump of frozen banana in the middle. Son didn’t like it, I didn’t like it. And it certainly wasn’t ice-cream. Sad face.

    Hmmmn. What the recipe omitted to tell you was that you need a blender with some serious oomph to get everything blended up in time. Also, a good tip is to put the bowl of the blender into the freezer for an hour or so before you use it, which also helps to keep everything frozen. It rather looks to me as though your bullet wasn’t man enough for the job. 😦

      This is exactly right Jenny! What melted became liquid and what couldn’t be broken up remained in a frozen lump. I don’t have any kitchen equipment with any oomph at all because I’m not allowed it 🙂

Can you help Alice?
